2014 Can I stop the honk when closing the door while the car is on?

I looked through the settings and did a few searches of this forum but haven't found relevant info. When I get out of my 2014 Volt while it is fully powered on (in Park) and close the driver's door, the horn honks and a message displays on the dash saying "no remote detected." Is it possible to disable this?

I have been doing deliveries at night and have to leave the door open to avoid the honk. I don't want to shut down the car for a quick dropoff 20' away (plus it keeps my cameras recording.)

Someone posted that if before exiting, the driver rolls down the driver's window and once the door is closed from outside, reach back through the window with the key fob and this will defeat the triple beep. I tried, didn't work.
Try this. Start car normally. Toss the fob out the window into garage, rosebushes, girlfriend's brassiere, yard etc. as applicable, when you depart home. Retrieve and inspect carefully when you return. Report back here. It won't solve the 3-beep problem, but we will enjoy hearing about it.

Be careful not to accidentally turn off your car while on appointed rounds. :D :D;)
