No more beeping when I lock her up?

Not sure why but my car is no longer giving me the single or double beep when I lock or unlock the doors (using the remote). Anybody know what might be going on?

Oh, the lights still flash...

Mine does this sometimes when the battery is weak. It comes back on it's own when the battery is charged

nompbsd,
I disagree, the fob (both of them) work fine. The door and trunk do what they should.

sounds like (well in your case you dont hear anything..j/k) somehow the programming for acoustic lock arming and disarming got lost. see the following programmable options that Tech Freak provided a few months ago http://www.tmk.com/transient/B090398_Att3_CKM_E65.pdf

Are you using the same remote? Sometimes the CKM are different for key 1 and key 2.
