I want my car to beep when I lock it (went into idrive)

I went into the idrive and turned the setting on. The car now beeps when I unlock it, which is ok. Just sometimes I can't tell if it locks and it doesn't flash when I lock it even though I have that turned on also. Every now and then I'll have to go back to the car and check it to feel comfortable. Whats next on the list of things to check, fuses?

I think you have to have the alarm system installed for it to beep upon locking.

I do have an alarm system. I have a panic button and when I lock the car and unlock the doors from the inside or open my trunk using the key the alarm goes off.

I had the same problem bro, Try unplugging the alarm sensor located under the hood in front of the passenger's side cabin filter, that's a common problem. GL

It is in the Settings / Vehicle Tires / Door Locks / Confirmation menu. This is described on page 32 in the manual of my car. My car is a 2008.
