    Maybe you could replace it with the innards from one of those recordable christmas cards - "Oi! Shut the door!!!"

    umm...my old maxima used to constantly said "key is under ignition" when my doors is left open. Is that what you're talking about?

    And while i'm on the subject, what do I have to do to modified it to tell me that my head lights are on instead of just beeping... Damn, I missed my talking car.

    I think some cars use fibre optics connected connected to the headlights to signify that it's on. Or you could just use relays etc

    no...I mean my cars just beeps when I leave the headlights on... Trying to figure out why it's beeping is very annoying... Is there a way I can make it talk?

    If it's just a little beeper module that has 12V in, you could change it to virtually anything that can run on 12V or less. If less, (or more I guess) you just have to add a regulator. Like this radio shack chime could be connected directly. It might sound better depending... Oh, here's something that would require some extra work.

    Yes, of course you can make it talk!!!

    1)Find the output tha'ts currently annoying you.
    2)use that to triggger (circuit of you choice using spo256 voice chip)
    3)cable new output to speakers/head unit/amp
    4)enjoy

    anythings possible.

    made an account specifically to post in this almost-ten-year very long dead thread
    if you can find the source of the door chime speaker, assuming it's a singular module and not jacked into the speaker system...
    you can replace the speaker with your own module with a built in sound effect, or possibly make it play through your car speakers somehow through an AXU connection

    but what to replace it with? i'd say either the rolls royce extremely pleasant chime

    or the tesla model s' subtle and pleasant but persistent bonging sound
