    I picked up a 3rd. key FOB off eBay for my 2000 300M. I used the
    instructions in the owners manual to program it. I now have 3 FOBs
    that work.

    The problem is, previously when you would lock/alarm the car the
    doors would lock, the alrm would enable, the parking lights would
    flash and horn would emit a short beep. Now the horn no longer beeps.

    I have reprogrammed a couple of times using the same procedure in the
    owners manual with no luck. All FOBs work and no horn beep on
    lock/alarm. This really does not bother me but it is my wife's car
    and she is complaining.

    Anyone know the programming sequence to get the horn beep back on

    From my '99 owner's manual:
    1. Press and hold the Lock button on the transmitter.
    2. Continue to hold the Lock button, wait at least 4 but no longer than
    10 seconds, then press the Unlock button.
    3. Release both buttons.

    you toggled the option off and it spells it out in the owners manual as
    far as how to turn it on

    Thank you Bill. The above steps worked perfect.

    You are correct. I must be blind. After reprogramming the FOBs I
    went through the manual a few times looking for that and missed it.
    Must have been because it was in the section "To lock the doors:"
    and I was looking for something along the lines of enable/disable
    horn beep.
