NAPA Lights on Buzzer

great!

An easier place to install the lights buzzer (as I have done) is to wire it from the RED/BLK wire on the back of the dash light dimmer switch, to the WHT wire of the interior light. The door switch becomes the ground, withthe dah lights providing the V+. Even if the courtesy light is switched off, the buzzer will still sound if the lights are on and the door opens.

I installed the Napa Lights On Buzzer Kit p/n 782-1637.

After reading other reviews and killing the battery once I decided to give this a try. I spent a couple hours trying to figure out where to install it. After that installation was quick. If I did another it would take me about 5 minutes to install. Once installed it works perfectly, buzzing when either the parking or head lights are on and the ignition is either off or in the accessory position. My experience was good and I'm writing this mainly to provide more details on the installation so it will be easier to others. I cut off the curled portion of the long thin brass spade clips provided. These then tucked in nicely next to the "tail" and "engine" fuses with the spade end sticking out. Just place the clip next to the fuse and install this combination as you would the fuse. The fuse box cover still goes on fine with the spades still accessible. I used the alligator clips, (something more secure might be better) connecting the red one to the tail fuse and the black to the engine fuse. A small square of the provided double sided tape mounted the buzzer to the dash plastic.

I'm delighted with this assembly, at least as of right now. I'm using a very small battery from a dirt bike (16 pound weight saving) that has zero reserve capacity so I really don't want to leave the lights on.

Happy with the product. Mine's a '97 miata. Maybe I'm mechanically challenged or something, but I had some troubles installing this. 1) the included metal clips that go in the fuse box were much too wide & I had to dremel them down to fit. Normally, they're U-shaped and will wrap around the fuse pin when inserted, but this again seemed much too fat to fit in the fuse box. Just as well that the outside of the U broke off during the dremel attempt. Also, I soldered the black wire onto one of the insert pins after cutting the dopey alligator clip off. 2) I couldn't find the right wires at the fuse box to connect to because the tail lights fuse is 'always on', so I ended up putting the black wire on the 'engine' fuse, and the red wire was run thru the firewall to the TNS relay red wire with blue stripe. (splicing into that wire, soldering, and heat-shrink-tubing that, and running the wire thru the firewall grommet is what ate most of the install time). The TNS relay is the relay that clicks on when you turn on just the running lights & is located left rear in the engine compartment. I chose that because I don't want to leave the running lights on either -- I'll change it later if the need arises. Use the headlight relay instead if you want to be able to leave the running lights on without the buzzer. I just know there's a better place to grab the positive for the buzzer, but I gave up trying to find it. Note: The buzzer is *LOUD* .... I'll most likely try using some epoxy putty to stifle it down a bit.

Despite the review sounding negative, I LIKE this little mod & am quite glad to have it! I suspect it'll work fine on the other models as well.

I was forever forgetting to turn off my parking lights and went scouring the KMarts of the world for this part. Finally found it at NAPA after a post on the big list. The kit contains a small buzzer with two pigtails, blades to go into the fuse box, and double sided tape to mount the buzzer. The product works just as expected. Very easy to install in under 30 minutes. The only suggestion I have is replacing the alligator clips with regular electrical connectors.
