from what i've found out, some of the models that came with auto doorlocks and windows do not have a keyless entry system. the honking is your alarm setting itself when you lock the door.

least that's what it is on mine lol... try this... go in, open your window, and go back out and lock the door to make it beep. Now that the window's open, reach in there and pull the doorlock. you'll know if the alarm is there :thumbsup: :D

I bought an 02 Sportage recently too. Mine has remote keyless entry and alarm, but the person that traded it in failed to turn in the keychain fob. I went to the Kia dealership to get a price on a replacement. They were $45 to replace the keychain, plus $45 labor to have them program it. I passed for now because I don't have a spare $90.

The alarm drives me crazy. I didn't know I had it at first, but it keeps going off when I lock the doors totally randomly. I think I will get the remote access soon, especially if it lets me control the alarm better.
