HI there,

The chime/alarm/notification sounds when locking/unlocking my 2014 Forester drive me nuts! Is there any way to disable these sounds?

It may say in the owners manual, but probably is going to have to be done by the dealer.

As Fairtax suggested, check your owner's manual. A brandy new 2014?? At the very least, ask the salesman to modify this as a courtesy. If you find the particular sequence for your car, please post it here. Welcome to the board.

I know your model isn't listed at the below link but it has to be one such "simple" fix. Do they really have to make it so complicated?!?

Audible Chirp when locking/unlocking
give you an audible signal when the doors lock and unlock. If desired,
you may turn the audible signal off.

Do the following to deactivate the audible
signal. You can also use the same steps to restore the function.

1. Sit in the driver’s seat and shut all
doors and the rear gate.

2. Hold down the UNLOCK side of the power
door locking switch.

3. While holding down the “UNLOCK” side
of the power door locking switch, pull the key out and re-insert it into
the ignition switch at least 6 times within 10 seconds
after Step 2.

4. Open and close the driver’s door once
within 10 seconds after Step 3.

5. The turn signal lights flash 3 times
to indicate completion of the setting.

Is this step-by-step for real?? Do you need to hold your head a certain way too?? I guess I am old school............I would have looked for a wire to disconnect.

Gotta be true, I read it on the interweb and found it using the Great Oracle Google.
