    looking for a little electrical help

    looking to add a peizo siren to my car so it sounds when i lock and unlock the vehicle. figured that as the indicators flash when you lock the car i could wire the siren to there but obviously i dont want the siren to sound when i put the indicator on so i would have to do from the multitimer possibly anyone who knows the best way to do it advise would be much appreciated many thanks

    Just wire it accross the motor wires for the petrol flap. Just remember it will sound if you lock yourself in the car though

    Yes you could go there. I only said the back as it could be mounted inside by one of the airvents

    You could try the buzzer onto the black/blue deadlock wire or black/yellow lock wire and black/red unlock wire

    i would like it to beep on lock and deadlock if possible if i breeched the wire from the siren and took one to lock and one to deadlock with a diode on one of the wires would that work without messing up the central locking or is there simply a wire that goes from the central locking ecu to the indicators that i could tap onto that would do both. sorry to barrage you with questions

    The black/yellow may pulse on lock on deadlock

    Another way could be to use a indicator wire as the + and a ignition live as the - this way when the ignitions on the buzzer won't beep as it's getting two lives
