You can't............ It's a safety warning and not configurable by the user.Hi there,
How do I turn the above off? It happened to me while I was IN the car today -- noneo f our other EVs has ever done this. I've turned everything else I can find but can't seem to disable this one.
The only time it goes off for me is when I’m sitting in the car, have passive locking turned on, have turned off the car, and have opened and closed the door to test some new setting that requires a “restart”.Yes. This is my only irritation with our Bolt. The "fob left in car" horn goes off many times as we are climbing out of the car, with the fob in a pocket. :-(
+1. I've never had the three-beep warning when I was actually getting out of the car - only when I stayed in the car after turning it off and then opening and closing the driver's door.The only time it goes off for me is when I’m sitting in the car, have passive locking turned on, have turned off the car, and have opened and closed the door to test some new setting that requires a “restart”.
I just went out and turned off the "fob left in car" alert. What a relief. That was one of the few things I had left on.You can turn it off, but it still honks if you plug it in with the key fob in the car.
I wish I can turn off the chime when the door is open, when the car is plugged in, when the key is left in the car, and all the annoying sound that potential will wake up my kids!
I had my fob fall out of my pocket and down into the slot between the driver's seat and the centre console. I got out of the car and got the triple-honk, and discovered that the key wasn't in my pocket. So I'm not going to disable that feature.I just went out and turned off the "fob left in car" alert.

No, I probably wouldn't have. But... belt and suspenders.You can't lock the car with the fob inside. If the horn hadn't beeped, would you have walked away without locking your car?
My point was that if you enable the auto-lock and disable triple-beep, then the only options left are bad ones: either the car auto-locks with the fob inside, or you walk away without realizing that the car has refused to lock itself (even worse, since anyone could get in and drive off).If GM designed it so you can have it lock automatically, with the fob inside, I'd call that a horrible design failure.
As battery prices come down more basic models will appear. Right now the manufacturers seem to feel that they need to add lots of features to justify the high cost.We wanted an EV without any of these so-called "features", but the i-Miev was never going to be available with 200 mile range. I figured the Bolt was as basic as a decent range EV was ever going to be.
I'm pretty sure I've turned that off, but will double check next tie I have the car (daughter is driving it).Well, that’s not entirely true. It can be turned off. See page 145 in the manual, “Remote Left in Vehicle Alert”.
