That's what happened to mine.... it honked for awhile, wife said make it stop because it annoyed her.
I got the FSM, found the power connection to it, snipped the wire & it was quiet. Unfortunately, the mechanical part that locks & unlocks the door is also dead now, so the door is permanently locked. I clipped the wrong wire!
Oh well.... I'll figure out how to fix it later.
So $100 from the dealer for the part...
What is the part that actually breaks? Got pics?
Is that part completely shot or could it be "field repaired" with some average skills?
