No honk after locking?

Hi all, sorry, I have another question that I can't find the answer to.
In my 2015 sportage if you hit lock on the keyfob twice within a few seconds, it would honk to let you know it was locked/armed. My 2019 doesn't do this. When I hit the button once it chirps once, when I hit it again, it just chirps again, no honk. Did they do away with that feature in the ex for 2019?

The 2018 does it. I doubt they took it away.

Is your burglar horn working? What honks is the burglar horn, not the regular ones.

Interesting that you would say that. My 2018 has never honked during locking. It beeps once when I lock it, and twice when I unlock it.

You can probably "adjust" it using the Driver's Info screen.

so the answers are: yes, the panic horn works but no, I do not see a way to adjust the settings through the driver's info screen. Any other ideas?

Also, I read that others had this issue and it was a switch that is suppose to be under the hood on the passenger side that is depressed when the hood is closed, and if it isn't depressed properly, the car thinks the hood is not totally shut and won't give the all clear that it is locked. 1) I can't find that switch but 2) I did accidentally lock pop the hood AMD lock the doors and whe. I lifted the hood, the panic alarm went off, so I don't think that is the issue, but if someone could direct me to where that is I'll check it out again and 3) I opened the lift gate and locked the doors, they locked but, the car didn't chirp at all, so that again makes me think it is probably not that the hood isn't registering as closed, because then, apparently, it wouldn't chirp at all.
