    2008 A6 Doesn’t Sound Horn on Lock

    My A6 doesn’t sound horn when locking with remote or door buttons. Panic button works. Tried 2 different remotes so it’s not them. I have a VAG-COM to change codes. Need advice on how to get beep.

    Doesnt sound horn? or doesnt sound beep? If it doesnt beep, its likely that the "Horn" module has a dead battery and it will need replacing. Located above the front passenger tire in the wheel well. (behind the cover of course)

    Isn't there also a setting in VCDS to turn this on and off? Just not sure where.

    There is a VCDS setting to adjust this, let me see if I can find it later tonight. I also don’t have a beep but know for a fact it should (previously checked my VCDS settings). I need to dig this thing out and see what’s up.

    Mine did not beep when I first got it, but I was able to turn it on. I am thinking somewhere in the central locking or convenience sections.

    Just to clarify: I would like the car to sound the horn (like from the steering wheel) when I hit the lock on the remote or door handle buttons.

    Thanks everyone. I guess I’m going to have to settle for the chirp instead of a horn honk like American cars do.

    you may be able to find the chirping speaker and wire a horn in it's place. it is in the passenger side front drive footwell apparently, i have not taken it apart myself.
