Dear customer care, I am writing to you from Kuwait. I have recently
purchased an SRT8 Charger from the Dodge dealer in Kuwait. My issue is
that the feature "sound horn on lock/remote start" does not function. I
have tried to fix the issue with the local dealer but they are clueless
how to fix the issue. I really hope that you can assist me with my
current issue which I wish can be resolved by the local service center.
Just in case, my contact number is +965xxxxxxxx. I am a loyal customer
of Dodge and this is my second Dodge Charger (previously owned Charger
(R&T package). Thank you for your time and hope to hear from you soon.
Thank you for contacting the U.S. Dodge Customer Assistance Center.

Finally visited the service center.
The Technicians Manager has showed me an email related to a previous customer who had the same problem. The manager was communicating with the Chrysler engineers who are in charge of the feature. The engineers replied and wrote that all the cars that are exported from the states have the option "Sound on horn lock or remote start" DISABLED because the other countries have some lame excuse that its related to Urban noise.
Only vehicles in the states have the option enabled.
I guess my trip is ended
I will try to contact the Middle East office which is in Dubai to try and convince them to enable the option on my car.
Btw, The latest modules software that were updated for the cars in Kuwait have disabled the option and as I understand that the software in USA and the other countries are different.
Hi Esz! I know this is already an old thread, but just wanna check if you managed to have it enabled? I have a 2013 Charger R/T here in Saudi Arabia and I am experiencing the same problem. I want to enable the horn on remote start.
