This is a tough one, it sounds like the alarm is arming itself when you lock the door, the alarm system is arming , there is a way i think to cancel out the horn chrip, the only other thing is the door lock is bad or the alarm module is going bad. Did the horn always chrip or beep before and do you know if the alarm works?

If you have any of the large chain auto parts stores in your area, call them and ask if they do free scans; most do.
If Subaru has maintained the same procedures for a while, and you have checked fluids, etc., you can try resetting the light via the ignition switch:
-Turn on the ignition (don't start) - switch it rapidly between the 'ignition on' and 'ignition off' positions three times.
If the error has cleared itself (not uncommon), the check light will reset. If the problem is still present, it will either stay or come back on.
Our Su has done this a couple of times and with the scanner we have on hand, there was never any particular repeated problem. Just a computer glitch/hiccough -

In hot weather, my door locks do not work with the key fob or by pushing the driver door lock for all doors. I have to lock and unlock each door manually.

If this happening with all the doors when it happens, I would suspect the lock relays are getting old and tired. Replace the power lock relay or relays.

Power locks lock with remote, but open by themselves, so I stopped using the remote. Still happens when I manually lock the doors

It might be in the ignition sensor. Most cars have a sensor that will not let the doors lock with they key in the ignition.

your lock switch got moisture in it and corrosion is making this happen. take it apart and clean, buy a new one, or if you dont mind losing the power locks pull the fuse or the breaker.

I have a 2003 PT LImited. The door locks intermittantly lock-unlock lock-ulock, lock-unlock several times regardless of speed, it happens while idling, driving forward, and backing up. About a year ago...

The RKEM (remote keyless entry module) is the problem.
Only a DRB-III scanner can program the transmitter codes and VIN number to remedy this problem....I hope this helps.

I was locked out of my 2007 silverado.

There is a feature called "delayed locking". If you get out of your vehicle and the keys are left in the ignition when you manually lock the doors with the door lock switch, the system will warn you the keys are in the ignition and do you really want to lock the door.
If you manually lock the door with the door lock switch a second time and shut the door, the locking system will lock all doors in 7 seconds and lock you out.

You can disable the feature through you DIC or have your dealer do it for you. The instructions are in the owners manual if you would like to try it.
Hope this helps, let me know.
Best regards,

Front drivers door lock issues

Our '97 Jetta locking is similar. One back door does not go down with the driver's door key double turn. We push it down manually before locking the rest with the key. I believe electrical lock actuator is gone on that door. Down the repair list. I have had door panels off on the car fixing electric window regulator. There is quite an expensive plastic sheet glued on to inside of door for sound proofing. Real hard not to tear. I bought new one from the dealer. Also little plastic clips around the door panel perimeter were brittle and about 50% broke, but not so expensive.
