Has any solution been found to get the D4 using the horns or is it a purely a coding item ?


Has anyone ever developed a workaround for this issue, or is it simply deemed not possible ?

Not sure D3 is same as D4, but usually when then the horn toots when locking, indicates something is left open, door,bonnet, tailgate and will not lock anything until offending item is shut.

You can lock everything and then just open tailgate, which leaves other doors locked and secured, no tooting.

I think difference between D3 and D4 is that you have to press lock twice on D3 to disable interior alarms, whilst on D4 you only press it once.


Confused - I always double press the button as I was under the impression it deadlocks the car? Am I wrong?

Read something on the dash info saying single button lock or something - how is that connected?

As far as i am aware on the D4, press lock once to lock your dog in, alarms not set and interior handles still open the doors, or twice to dead lock and set the alarm.

Im still interested if anyone knows how to make the D4 alarm sound the horns as i just tried mine outside my bedroom window and i doubt it will be waking me up!

I've tried and failed regarding D4 alarm using horns. The sounder itself is pretty loud but sits inside a box under an insulated bonnet, so it's always going to struggle.

I wonder -is it possible to fit an additional loud sounder that’s triggered when the LR Sounder activates?

Wiring diagram refers to a "passive sounder if fitted" but I've never pursued that avenue

Thanks, Interesting- next question where can one find the wiring diagram on the web? Assuming of course it’s available.

Reckon it might be an option to put a loud auxiliary sounder on the Disco, might act as a deterrent to the ODB access theft as from the videos I have seen of the theft the alarm goes off but it’s that quiet nobody hears it, so a decent loud sounder may make them jump, and not want to hang about with a lot of noise, something like a TLC 118db siren or louder if available
