    Todays simple Mod and advice

    Not to my car but a colleagues Astra H

    He complained as to having no way of seeing that the doors were locked on his car and asked if a buzzer could be fitted instead. It couldn't have gone better

    15 minutes later the job was done so now on deadlock the car gives a short beep with a longer beep on unlock

    On a seperate note when drilling metal wear goggles. I was using a new step drill and had some hot swarf fly off and just catch me on my eye lid that gave me a shock, got a nice burn there now!

    what was needed to do this?

    does it still do it when locked/unlocked using the button on the dash or just when using the keyfob?

    Whats needed is a simple 12 volt buzzer and a soldering iron

    Not sure on the button on the front, definatly won't do it on lock as it's on the deadlock wire, may do it on unlock, will ask the question tomorrow and hopefully get a answer Friday

    Hmm

    Nice Idea

    Also gives the impression of it being alarmed aswell I suppose?

    Where did you get the beeper from?

    i had a similar experience when using a grinder with no goggles.
    thought to myself i dont need goggles its just a small area getting done.
    felt something in my eye but when i blinked it went away.
    later the same day i couldn't open my eye and ended up in a&e.
    scratched my retina/iris cant remember. had to flush my eye out
    alway use goggles now even if its just for a sec

    how did you do this and what buzzer etc did you use?

    I'm after something like this on my coupe, as i have terrible OCD about checking my cars locked, if i had a buzzer i would be happy knowing it was locked if i heard the buzzer go off!

    I wouldn't mind doing this myself, sounds like such a great simple but effective idea!
