PostSubject: Blinker Beeper   Sat Feb 10, 2018 4:02 pm

Thought it might be time to digress:

Does anyone have any experience/recommendations for installing a "blinker beeper"? I find myself failing to cancel my blinkers from time to time, more often than not, and usually a couple miles down the road since my corner, and want to put something audible that reminds me to do that.

I drive a Lincoln with the left blinker permanently on. That's what you're supposed to do at my age. I don't want to miss any buffet dining experience that I might come upon, especially around 3 PM when it's my supper and senior discount time.

I have an FSM and all that and can figure out the wiring, just wanted to know if any of us can recommend what kind of part to use, where to mount it, etc. I guess I could wire it to the horn, but that might be a little bit much.

I could probably take the "dinger" out the Lincoln, but then I'd be lost there.

Jon

Or you could use a two wire, but, the wires going to the indicators will each need a diode in line, general layout as per digram below (pinched from internet Wink ) The diodes are needed to prevent cross channel feedback (without them turning on either side would give 4 way indicators)

You're too kind sir, the first three were 'dead links' in an old thread, all I did was update them to current websites Smile the last was how we did it before commercial (& cleverer) solutions became available (same wiring works if you want to add an extra warning light) Wink

Yup, kudo's to the Bern. I think the 3 wire el-cheapo beeper will be my first option, of course the "seat of your pants" idea sounds weirdly interesting too.

Thanks Bern,

Jon

I just fitted an audicator while I replaced my head bearings.

Apart from the manufacturers not stating they had changed the wiring colours (!) from the original instructions, fitting was quite easy and I hid the beeper under my dash on the Silverwing.

It has a variety of beeps to choose from. This could be needed in some countries as pedestrian crossing beeps for blind persons might sound similar.

A programmable time delay - starts after a preset number of flashes.

To avoid embarrassment from constant beeping at traffic lights, applying a brake (not the handbrake) silences the unit. After release, the preset delay kicks in and the beep returns.

Summary; a black mark for wrong instructions but assured me my packaging was a one-off. Quality unit, but some thought needs to be given to placement due to extreme weather. The brake light operated silencing is a definite must-have. Not always audible at highway/motorway speeds.

We ALL forget to cancel now and again. A simple distraction - like a pretty woman for us blokes - is all it needs.

IIRC CathyN fitted a self cancelling device on her scooter, will try & dig out the post/thread this evening.
Will also find the old thread I got the links from & post that, not for the links (as they are out of date) but for the banter it contains, it really is quite amusing Wink


EDIT: must be memory failure, been through Cathy's posts & can't find anything study scratch
