    lights on warning

    Having once left the parking lights on all night at a very remote spot, does anyone know of a device that briefly gives an audible warning that they are on after switching off the ignition, but then stops? (So that lights can be left on when needed for parking on the road). Most audible warnings built in to modern cars are wired to warn of headlights left on or if warning of parking lights, stops warning after the car is exited.

    Is this the sort of thing you are looking for?

      The easy way to do this without much trouble is to wire a suitable LED warning light from the sidelight wiring fix it in a position you can not avoid it being not seen

        lights warning

        glenw: The audible warning you posted a link for would sound constantly - it is designed to warn of headlights being left on.
        I'll do what alf39 suggested, use an led instead as that would not drain significant power or attract attention if I need to park on a road where parking lights are required.

          Ahh having re-read your requirements I understand what you wanted and see where my suggestion fails whereas alf's will work. The added bonus I guess would be that a flashing led could be assumed to be part of an alarm system when activated if anyone decides to look inside.

            The drawback of a flashing led is it is very distracting and annoying for this to be flashing in the dark on a long nightime journey. whilst in the drivers sight.

            As another matter should anyone wish for an automatically set flashing led warning light that comes on each time when the ignition is turned off. It is a simple job to install.
            please PM me I don't like posting alarm or security ideas on open forums

              I have change my side light and tail light bulbs for LED bulbs as they use a fraction of the power of normal filament bulbs when left on for any length of time.

                lights on warning

                Even if I did long night journeys (& I don't plan to) the led would be installed where it can be seen from the living area and not from the drivers seat - simply to prevent me from going to bed with the parking lights on. (the circumstances that caused me to leave them on one night was because I spent an evening removing all the bulbs and cleaning all the contacts & checking all was ok!)
