Re: BA: Pushing lock on keypad when already locked
When the car is locked and you press the lock button again, the lights will flash as normal when locking. IF you have pressed the lock button quite quickly after the initial press, the horn will sound. However, if you have taken more than around 5 seconds, the horn doesn't sound.... much better than the AUs when it would always sound the horn if you tried locking a 2nd time.
The only 'damage' you'll do with multiple lock/unlock is use the battery!
A previous post said you can program the unlocking to be 2 stage (driver door first press, other doors on 2nd press OR a long 1st press).. There are other things you can program that aren't in the manual... such as turning off the seat belt warning chimes permanently if you don't want them.
