Headlight buzzer - Crx, Hatch and Sedan
« on: January 29, 2010, 09:49:00 pm »
Welcome to owning an old car without a headlight buzzer.

After a few phone calls from the wife, he guess what I need a jump.

I decided to do this little trick.  After this if we leave the lights on it tell us by the annoying buzz.

Tools/Parts
1 12v Piezo Buzzer (Not Siren!) (less than $3.00)
1 pair of needle nose pliars

Instructi ons
Take off your Fuse Panel so you have access to your fuses.
Next unplug the #8 Taillight s/License Lights/Instrument Lights Fuse.
Once the fuse is unplugged take the Red Wire from the Piezo and place the exposed end looped over one leg of the fuse where the metal part makes connectio n with the fuse holder
.
Then plug the Fuse back into place, make sure it is in all the way and the wire is not in the way of it.

Once that is done unplug the #18 Rear Defroster Relay Fuse.
Do the same as you did for the Red Wire for the other Black Wire and make sure everythin g goes back in correctly .

Now to test it make sure the car is turned off and then turn on the headlight s and when they come on the buzzer should buzz.

Then turn the car on and it should stop buzzing once the car is on. The buzzer will help you to make sure to turn your lights off so your battery is not drained.

Notes

I tried this on a sedan, hatch and crx and they all work in the same way.

I could hug you right now Richard. I have only killed my battery, oh, 5 or 6 times cause of my headlight s. Ill be getting one of these VERY shortly. Sounds super simple for those who are afraid of wiring too.

After x many phone calls of Erm guess what.

I decided that there has to be a way.

It is really easy.

I'll try and take some pictures tonight to show how I did it.

where you get those buzzers at? I'd rather run to advance or something than ordering one

OK Terminusv ox on the wagon site figured out the EG one.

The red wire goes to fuse #19 Dash Lights, Dimming Signal, Parking Lights, Tail lights, License Plate Lights, Console Lights, Option Connector "D".

The black wire goes to fuse #13 Power Mirror, Anti-Lock Brake System, Air Delivery, Blower Motor Relay, Rear Window Defogger Relay, Radiator Fan Relay, Condenser Fan Relay.
