Audible Flasher Unit

In an attempt to reduce the risk of me driving with my indicators on. Is there an audible relay unit available to simply replace the existing relay?

1994 Caterham 7 K series.

Thanks

If you search the archives (via google best) people have fitted piezo buzzers into the circuit.

I'm just fitting side indicators into the headlights so they are in my field of vision. I never fitted the side repeaters into the wings so the spare connection is in the wiring block.

Hi Paul

I know there is one as I have one that I got from Just Add Lightness. It wasn't a stock item but I telephoned and Doug who got me one.

I cant find the phone number but his email is

1 If you have a Seven with a single indicator warning light you may need to make some simple modifications with a couple of diodes in order for it all to work. 

2 You can also get units that include self-cancelling with an adjustable delay.

3 I have a large collection of wiring diagrams to help with this. Available to all Members. Please send me a Private Message if you'd like the right one for your Seven.

Can't you just buy a flasher relay with a built in buzzer?

This isn't a problem on my 2014 car as there is a electronic buzzer built in by caterham, but it's not very loud . I have micro repeaters in my headlight bowls, so I can see the indicators are on easily, sevens and classics sell and or fit them. Best of luck Julian

What about £2.50-ish on a motorcycle-type buzzer you can crimp onto your indicator wiring, eg
www.ebay.co.uk/itm/123745823706

You can then regulate the noise to your preferred level using insulting tape to cover some of the speaker holes

That didn't work well on my wife.

So, Giles, the red and black wires on your eBay buzzer link you would just connect to your indicator warning light positive & negative feeds?
