I'm just the opposite. If I leave my turn signals on going down the highway one more g*********d time, I'm installing a beeper.

LOL
I have thought for a long time that those "signal stat" turn signals should have a high voltage connector that activates after 5 minutes. Power could be wired into the operators seat.

take off the lower cover under the steering wheel... I forget how it goes at moment.... but the turn signals are auto cancel. there is a knub in there that should click the off when you turn the wheel. saw it when removed/replaced turn signal. Didnt try to line it up cause knew it was temporary for this truck.


Point is you should be able to go in there and align things so knub does its job to auto cancel the turn stalk.

Not when you leave them on and don't turn (ie: lane change, etc).

Air tanks must have an audible alarm that engages below 60psi per DOT regulations. Most trucks have a light as well.

Easy enough to rig in a light with a buzzer. Cole harsee #4112-R000 Is a light/buzzer combo


I will add that most operators that are familiar with their truck can sense something is wrong with their truck before the gauges show anything either thru feel in the floor or seat or just how its behaving

I put a small kill switch in the wire of the buzzer. On startup I press the switch and wait until air is OK.
When I'm in road I think also that this buzzer can save lives!

PLEASE Be Careful Plasa - If a DOT man (or a sharp lawyer) encounter you and your truck in an accident - and discover the ability to disable the low air buzzer it won't be good for you.

I'm not a lawyer and this is just my opinion.

This site is available to the public. It wouldn't be too hard for an "ambulance chaser" to find it. Then a little more digging to uncover this thread... You get the picture. I hate the noise as much as anybody but bypassing safety devices is a really BIG DEAL.

You're right, but it's a button (sorry for my mistake) that I need to keep pressed to inhibit the warning. It's not permanent. Ithink in EU the law is quite similar than in the US. You cannot inhibit the warning permanently... But I'm not an expert...

I understand that, but the buzzer blaring for two minutes everytime you start the truck is a little excessive. Of course there's no air pressure at the moment. Now if it starts blaring while you're driving you know you have a problem.
My very first mod was a wad of monkey shit jammed over the buzzer to quiet it down to a pleasant nagging sound.
