Remote locking

chances are everything is working other than the lights and don`t have to be concerned,however the system for the lights and beep have probably been turned off and can be reactivated if you want those working.i don`t have the procedure with me but if you go on google and punch in your car and problem,you should be able to find the procedure to reset the system so you have lights and beep working.

Beeping warning sounds

Some vehicles have just a standard ignition chime indicating the key is in the ignition. If the sound doesn't turn off in about five chimes you may have a problem with the Chimer of that is if you have no lights on indicating anything.

Toyota Camry irritating intermittent beep sound

All I can tell you is watch the dash display for an indicator light that blinks on with the beep. My car does this when the "ECO" light comes on.

Sometimes when I set the alarm - it beeps 23 times quickly - it might do this for several days, then suddenly, it sets properly - 1 beep. BUT it often goes off on its own - the light on the dash will...

Check that all the doors are closing correctly, a good way is to check that the interior light is switched off when all the doors are closed.
The problem usually occurs due to the alarm unable to set itself properly due to open doors or the bonnet not pushing the switch down far enough.
It may also have stored old codes from when it has been set off in the past, get a good auto alarm place to reset the alarm if you don't have the manual to do it yourself. Hope this helps, let me know how you get on.

I have a 2005 chevy malibu, and one morning it just wouldn't start, the car never showed signs of anything wrong, and when I turn the key it just make a beeping noise.

I have a Chev 2004 Malibu and so does my cousin.. This is a problem that A LOT of these cars have, but Chevy does not see this as a SAFTY issue... so they will not fix it. This problem will continue to happen to you.. there is NO way to fix it or by pass it. Basically your ingition is not recognizing your key, and this is Chevy's crappy way of keeping your car from being stolen. You will notice when your car doesn't start, your THEFT SYSTEM light is BLINKING... What you need to do is, when this happens to you, leave your key in the ignition, and turn it to ACC. Leave it there for approximately 10 minutes, until the THEFT SYSTEM light is SOLID, not BLINKING anymore. Turn your car off, and then turn it back on. Your car should start right up. I had this happen to me EVERY SINGLE TIME I got in my car for 2 weeks! Then it stopped and I thought it wouldn't do it anymore. But just as you need to be somewhere and you are running late.. THE CAR KNOWS!!! And it will do it to you again! Good luck!

How do I set my radio stations?

Manually turn to the station you are wanting and hold the number 1 button you wish that station to be on until it blinks and or makes a beep sound. then manually turn to the next station and hold down the number 2 button til the screen blinks again, and so forth.

Beeping with no warning lights

usually beeping noise is associated with warning signs (to make the driver notice) perhaps the electrical connection got shorted somehow cuz of dirt or water.....i think you should have the electrical wiring checked at the service shop...
