It's probably an option you can somehow set. Not everyone wants to announce themselves like that. Check the manuel or dealership.

I wish mine didn't make that sound. It tells would-be thieves that someone just parked the car and won't be back for a while. However, I also have a 'panic button' which will tell me where my car is in a parking lot. That's helpful.
There is an area on the dash on my GTO and it says settings and mode on it. You push the buttons and different options come up. That is how I changed it on that car.
The other car is 7 years old and I would have to go outside and look at it and my truck is 12 years old and once again I would have to go look. Problem is it is 1:00 am and don't want to go looking in the dark right now.
Since the member's car is a 2007, I am guessing you need the owners manual or you have to go to the dealership and have it done.

I recently purchased a 2007 Saab 93 sedan. I noticed (unlike other cars that I have had) when locking the doors with the key fob there is no horn/alarm sound........wondering why?
European cars usually don't have such - it least never when sold here.
(And others - even US-made - don't have it either.)

I went outside today and played with the key fobs.
2004 - The programming is built in the dash like I stated in the earlier post.
2002 - I use the inside lock button and then there is no chirp, if I use the key fob to lock the doors, then there is a chirp. I can't change the programming.
1997 - Same as the 2002
