Walk-away Lock Confirmation Sound

When you walk away from the Model 3, it locks automatically. There is a honk of the horn as a confirmation sound that the car has locked. There is also an option to switch off this sound, which I have done. However, so far every day the sound has magically switched itself back on. This is bad for me as there is a flat above my garage, and I don't want to annoy the neighbours every time I lock the car, especially late at night.

Anyone else had this problem?

I didn't even know you could turn it off! Where do you do it? I will happily try on mine.

Might need to save the setting to your profile...?
 
Yeah, it works the first couple of times after I set it. Left the car for a few hours, went back and opened it up to get something out, didn't drive it anywhere, then walked away and it honked at me.

Regarding Easy Entry - is there a set of instructions for this somewhere?
Another thing I didn't realise it had and is a feature I have loved on previous vehicles!
 
easy entry is listed in your driver profiles

I'm finding that the car takes longer than I'm happy with before it locks when I walk away. I'm used to other cars doing it when I'm about 2 metres away. But, I assume because of BT, this one seems to wait until I'm down the road and heading round the corner...o_O

I wonder if there is a time based factor in it. I've had it sound the horn when I have been inspecting the car close up (its made me jump twice) so I have been slow to depart, but other times, I've got to the front door (further away, obvs) or on the way there before its tooted.

I must say, this was one of the features that I was most nervous about, but so far, I think it works great, although still disconcerting walking away from a car with music playing and screen lit. I'm not sure I would have been so favourable without the honk though, but state of auto close mirrors is a good backup.

Tesla have launched a new key fob that supports remote lock/unlock on a button and also proximity unlock. I hope they offer it in the UK soon. Phone unlocking is ok, but I prefer a positive open/close and I miss the keys on a key ring! They've also killed the market for brand specific key fobs!
