2012 Subaru Impreza: Silencing the Door Chime
May 12, 2012
Personally, I don't care for the audible door lock/unlock chime on our 2012 Subaru Impreza. I may be in the minority but generally any chime, chirp or melody associated with locking or unlocking a car are annoying to me. That is why I was glad to find this page in the manual.
The process of disabling (and enabling if that's your thing) the chirp on the Impreza is really simple. Hold down the driver's door unlock button while you poke the key in and out of the ignition a bunch of times. Then open the door and get out. The chime is silenced. I like it.
