    Just got this new Kenworth truck issued to me. I have the autostart enabled. I was in the truck and witnessed it blow the horn (city horn) twice, then start.
    After I drive the truck, must I manualy turn autostart back on each time?

    Also is there any way to set it up so the (city) horn doesn't beep twice prior to starting?
    This could piss off other drivers at truck stops.

    Please for the love of god this. Had one of those #### trucks park next to me and it would toot its airhorn 10 times then start....every 10-15mins......i was seriously considering putting a few rounds into his truck by morning. Woulda left but i was 5 hours into my 10 when he pulled in and the lot was full.

    If i meet the rigs owner im going to be tempted to feed him a double knuckle sandwhich though. Also see if i can break my size 18EEs off in his arse.

    Yeah if you can't find the fuse pop the hood and find that little horn, it's easily unplugged. Besides, you don't use that horn for 4 wheelers anyways, as I know you just use your middle finger. LoL

    I did figure it out. As long a you do not exit the truck after activating it, the horn will not blow. If you exit it, just reactivate it abs it won't
