Want The Car To Make A Sound When I Lock It


Recommended Posts

Hey

Does anyone know how i could install some aftermarket thing that makes a sound when i lock my car with the remote? Like those alarms on earier cars.. but i dont wanna buy a whole after market alarm.

My mates suv makes a sound too when he locks it and its easier then always looking if your turnlights went and you wont forget if you locked it...

this is what i mean, i uploaded this sound :

:lol: at Pete :D

When I had my IS the locking mechanism was always loud so I could always hear it engage?

You're going to need some custom electronics I guess - if you're not good with that then to be honest I guess it's going to be cheaper to just buy an aftermarket alarm :(

You could just wire a a small circuit and speaker into the car that attaches to the alarm trigger wire similar to the way the window and mirror closure unit does.

Give me a day or so and i'll see what i can do. Probaly just be a couple of beeps but i'll see what i can do.

Well i've just had a root around the net and for the right circuits and a siren probaly cost about £40 so not really worth it in the end.

Could make the boards myself but not to good with Electronics themselves.

I'll have a think tomorrow if it can be done cheaper.

I didn't wanna start a discussion about sound being annoying or not :)

Only want to know if anyone knows what to install :)

apparently in the us the is300 beeps when you lock it, could the dealer just change a setting?

If you do a search then the mirror closure has been covered a lot.

And somewhere on the site theres a wiring diagram to make the mirror closure yourself.

Still looking into a cheaper way to make it beep but i'll figure it.

Not sure but I've got a feeling the IS300 has the CBest settings which aren't available on the 200 variant, they cover many things like that...

Colin Barber is the mine to advise on that :)
