Default Disable door lock horn notification.

I recently got my first F150. Its a 2013 XLT. In an attempt to not wake up neighbors early in the morning I would like to disable the horn honking when you press lock twice. I like the visual check with the lights flashing but my neighbors don't like the horn. Mr. Google has not been helpful so I'm branching out. If anyone can provide some advise I would appreciate it.

Just press the button once. It will still lock the doors and flash the lights there is no need to press the button twice unless you want the horn/sound indication that it's locked. I can still hear the doors lock without the horn.

Pressing the lock button on the remote will lock all the doors. Pushing it twice locks the doors and activated the perimeter alarm.

When you open the drivers door (thru the open window) you will get about 10-15 seconds of an unfamiliar beep in the dashboard (also my drivers info screen shows that the alarm has been set off) then the horn will honk. If you open another door first, the horn will honk instantly.

This is not the case for the 2013 F150 trim lines with a stock OEM remote door locks. The 2nd press has no effect on any "perimeter alarm"

The 2nd press is just for a system check and horn chirp confirmation if you want that.

Cut & paste straight from the manual:

Locking the Doors
Press the button to lock all the doors. The turn signals will
illuminate.
Press the button again within three seconds to confirm that all the doors

are closed. The doors will lock again, the horn will chirp and the turn
signals will illuminate if all the doors are closed.
Note:

If any door is not closed, or if the hood is not closed on vehicles
equipped with an anti-theft alarm or remote start, the horn will chirp
twice and the lamps will not illuminate

The OEM anti-theft security systems operate as follows:

SECURILOCK® PASSIVE ANTI-THEFT SYSTEM (IF EQUIPPED)
Note:
The system is not compatible with non-Ford aftermarket remote
start systems. Use of these systems may result in vehicle starting
problems and a loss of security protection.
Note:
Metallic objects, electronic devices or a second coded key on the
same key chain may cause vehicle starting issues if they are too close to
the key when starting the engine. Prevent these objects from touching
the coded key while starting the engine. Switch the ignition off, move all
objects on the key chain away from the coded key and restart the engine
if a problem occurs.
Note:
Do not leave a duplicate coded key in the vehicle. Always take
your keys and lock all doors when leaving the vehicle.
The system is an engine immobilization system. It is designed to help
prevent the engine from being started unless a coded key programmed
to your vehicle is used. Using the wrong key may prevent the engine
from starting. A message may appear in the information display.
If you are unable to start the engine with a correctly coded key, a
malfunction has happened and a message may appear in the information
display.
Automatic Arming
Your vehicle arms immediately after you switch the ignition off.
Automatic Disarming
Your vehicle disarms when you switch the ignition on with a coded key.
Replacement Keys
Note:
Your vehicle may come equipped with two integrated keyhead
transmitters.
The integrated keyhead transmitter functions as a programmed ignition key
that operates all the locks and starts the vehicle, as well as a remote control.
If your programmed transmitters or standard SecuriLock coded keys are
lost or stolen and you do not have an extra coded key, you will need to
have your vehicle towed to an authorized dealer. The key codes need to be
erased from your vehicle and new coded keys will need to be programmed.
Store an extra programmed key away from the vehicle in a safe place to
help prevent any inconveniences. See your authorized dealer to purchase
additional spare or replacement keys.


OR

ANTI-THEFT ALARM (IF EQUIPPED)
The system will warn you of unauthorized entry to your vehicle.
The turn signal lamps will flash and the horn will sound when:

any door or the hood is opened without using the key or the remote
control

the ignition is turned on with an invalid key.
Take all keys and remote controls to your authorized dealer if there is
any potential alarm problem with your vehicle.
Arming the Alarm
The system is ready to arm whenever the ignition is off. Lock the vehicle
to arm the alarm.
The turn signal lamps will flash once after locking the vehicle to indicate
the alarm is in the pre-armed mode and will become fully armed in
20 seconds.
Disarming the Alarm
To disarm the alarm, do any of the following:

Press the power door unlock button within the 20-second pre-armed
mode.

Press the unlock button on the remote control.

Unlock the doors with the keyless entry pad.

Turn the ignition on with a valid key.

Press the panic button on the remote control. The alarm system will
still be armed, but this shuts off the horn and turn lamps when the
alarm is sounding.
Note:
If the driver’s door is unlocked with a key, a chime will sound
when you open the door. You will have 12 seconds to disarm the alarm using any of the actions above, otherwise the alarm will trigger

I don't want that. I want to just look to see the lights come on if things are good or go off if they are not. If the answer is to go to a dealer to get it turned off i'm ok with that answer just looking for anyway to get it turned off.

I think you're over complicating this. I'll answer your question with a question. Why do you need to press your key fob door locking button twice?

If you press it once all your doors will lock and the OEM anti-theft protection is on and the horn will NOT honk if you press the button once. Problem solved no dealer required.

Hope that helps.

Aftermarket remote start uses three presses of lock to activate start. It uses the OEM keyfob so the truck is honking when i remote start. It is not a function of the Remote Start it is a function of the truck. I know it is possible on other vehicles just can't find out a way on Ford.

That is the main reason. The other is I have kids and like being able to check to make sure they closed the doors. The lights are the real indicator the honk doesnt help but to annoy my neighbors.

Fair enough, this is the first time that you mentioned the aftermarket remote starter (or I missed it) so that changes the parameters. I can't answer it anymore sorry but I would guess as others have said it can be changed through the dealer. I'd call a service adviser at a dealership first and ask about it. I don't use or like the horn honking either but do not have this issue with my OEM remote starter.

Its not a function of the remote start which is why it wasnt mentioned it isnt relevant. Its a feature of the truck that i want to work on.
