Default turn signal sounder

I have a 2004 M5 mazdaspeed. The car is great except that the steering
wheel hides the turn indicators from my line of sight. Also, the
turn indicator sound is so low that I can not hear it with the top
down.

Does anyone know of an indicator light or sounder that I can mount
onto this car so that I do not drive for 5 or 6 miles or more with the
turn indicator on?

Sorry I have no suggestions for you but I love you just for asking. That
whole drive forever with your blinker on makes me crazy. :-)

The driving forever with the signal lights on makes me feel as if I am
70 years old living in Forida…. I am not.
As soon as I find a wiring diagram with the color code for the signal
flasher, I will add a LOUD sounder to the car such as in:
http://www.freightlinerchassisowners...gnalBuzzer.pdf
Or:
http://www.damouth.com/RVStuff/TurnBeep.shtml
Or even:
http://www.rattlebars.com/mtz/buzzer.html

Does any body have a wiring diagram for a 2004 MX5 mazdaspeed miata?

How about adding another light? A sounder loud enough to hear at speed
is going to be deafening in a quiet area late at night.

I was thinking of both. The wiring is the same. It is just a matter
of adding a switch and deciding where top place the lamp (or LED).

I still need the wiring diagram and color code. Tracing it out with a
meter is an option but I want to save that work. After all, laying on
ones
back under the dashboard in this car for this work is gonna hurt…

Working under the dash is a pain-- I found that removing the drivers seat,
and padding the floor to smooth out the projections helps a lot.

It's probably the exact same for 99~05 Miatas, if that helps you any.
Actually, I think I have it in my 'workshop manual'. Let me try scanning it
and sending it directly to you. I'm thinking this is the right page, it's
called "turn and hazard warning lights'

I'll give it a go,
Chris

I'm over seventy, I do happen to live in Florida and I have the same problem.
I can't hear the turn signal flasher in my 2006 Tacoma. I used to drive
around with my turn signal flashing all the time. because I'm short and the
steering wheel blocks my view of the turn signal lights on the dashboard. I
only knew the signal was flashing when my girlfriend was in the truck to
complain about it. It's not that we old geezers have all gone senile, or
completely deaf, this problem happens because men gradually lose the ability
to hear high frequency sounds as we age, so the clicking sound (which is a
high frequency) eventually becomes inaudible. My hearing is fine for other
sounds, so I don't want to buy an expensive hearing aid just to hear the turn
signal. I was never able to locate the device that makes the clicking sound
in my truck, because it's not shown in the owner's manual. Youtube videos
show how to replace the flasher relay under the hood, but that's not what
people hear. The device people hear is hidden somewhere under the dashboard
and at my age I have no desire to try and squeeze under the dash to try and
find it. The other thing I don't want to do is modify the wiring in my truck.
So, I came up with a bright idea. It was easy to find the flasher fuse in
the fuse box under the hood, because it's clearly labeled on the inside cover
of the fuse box. I'm a retired aerospace engineer, so it was simple for me
to design a little electronic gizmo that would plug directly into the fuse
socket and detect when current is passing through the flasher fuse. When, the
device detects current going to the turn signal lights it sends a radio signal
to a box in the truck cab which makes a sound I can hear. To keep it cheap, I
hacked into a wireless doorbell button and put that in the fuse box to send
the signal. The box that makes the sound in the truck cab is a battery
operated wireless doorbell receiver, which is small enough to slide under the
driver's seat. The doorbell receiver plays a tune that's plenty loud for me
to hear when the turn signals are flashing (after all, it is a doorbell). The
doorbell I used has multiple melodies, so I selected the national anthem and
that's what I hear when the turn signal is flashing. If enough people are
interested in this device, then I will build some of them and sell them for
the cost of the parts plus ten bucks. Unfortunately, it's not worth my time
to make just one or two of these units, I need to know that five to ten people
want one. As for the installation, if you can replace a fuse and shove
something under the drivers seat, then you can install this thing in any car
or truck in minutes. No knowledge of electricity is required and no
permanent changes are made to your vehicle wiring. And it's portable, If you
buy a new car, then just unplug it and move it to the new vehicle. If you
want one of these, then you can contact me through a website where I sell a
different one of my inventions . My website is www.mailboxminder.com
