Why not just disconnect the speaker from the VPS module which is in the glovebox area (or from the speaker module itself, if you are so inclined)? It won't flag an error code and the only other thing you lose is the charge connection beep which uses the same speaker.

The reason this is better than disconnected speaker is that it would be nice to have the OPTION to turn on the noisemaker while driving.

The existing toggle button is fine if the DEFAULT is "Off", which is what this mod does. Perfect.

OK, fair enough. I'd go for it.

I wonder if the PAC TR7 might have a mode that is ready for this. Would simulating a button press 5 seconds after startup work? Mode #9 should suffice.


The TR7:

Better yet, it looks like mode 17 would be better (see the bonus features) so you can program how long to wait before pulsing.

well there you go, theres something already made. Wish I knew that before, but shame on me for not looking. Guess I'll get back to "real" work now.. heh.

Pshaw! I'm already excited about this mod - I don't care if I get this PAC TR7 and try and figure out the wiring (I'm a little intimidated by the instructions... but I'm willing to try it), or get something from you, or whatever! I've been annoyed with the thought of the noisemaker ever sense I've read about it, and this seems like an incredibly elegant solution to the problem.

So if you want something your way, post it here and I'm sure others will be interested. If this was just to see if it can be done, then I'll try his PAC TR7, but my guess is even then I'll be back here with some more questions :)

The cost would be about the same once you add in the PC Board and labor so I don't think I will be selling anything.

I'll be glad to give out the binaries for the PIC12CE673 if someone want's to make one themselves.

I also have several chips in stock that I could sell pre-programmed.

People can PM me if interested.

I can help people with the wiring and programming of the tr7. Anybody know if 5 seconds is too long? I have some of the older TR-7 units that don't support mode 17 that I could sell cheap. Otherwise, you'll need the newer TR7 unit.
