Quite aarn and eyes, the hazzards flash plus red interior light. You know my opinion on the beep. Should not be allowed .noise pollution. Try a busy hotel car park on the ground floor in the usa. Drove us nuts!i
but has anyone figured out which wire comes from the actuator, or, has anyone replaced the rear speakers and so would have seen the actuator from the inside...any pictures or videos of the rear speaker removal that may show the wire?
BTW, the connecting up the piezo buzzer was extremely easy...if only i can figure out which wire to use...
ok .....I did a little Googling of 'fuel door actuator' and i see that the unit has one black wire and one light blue wire coming from it ( or going to it?) ....there must be a ground connection too ...I assume that one wire gives power to lock it and one gives power to unlock it. In that tiny access space that i described where there are large wire bundles i do see a light blue wire so there would be a 50/50 chance that that is the wire i am looking for to attach a piezo buzzer that will chirp upon unlocking the car with the FOB.
I would like to try to connect a test light to that blue wire to see if when you lock the car with the FOB if that blue wire powers the fuel door.....if so then i can attach a $10 piezo buzzer from Radio Shack, which worked out nicely in my 2004 MINI.
This access space is tiny, not enough room to stick one hand in ( the only other way to access the actuator would be to remove the interior side panel where the rear speakers are which require you to basically strip the entire insides and remove the rear seats) .....
1) does anyone know if there is some sort of clip that i can crimp over that blue wire which won't cut it but will give an electrical contact point to basically be able to splice into the wire?
2) I cannot imagine that this could hurt anything with the car as if the wire is giving power and i attach a test light to a ground there should be no problem and if the wire is a ground for some reason then it won't do anything anyway when i connect the test light .....does this make sense??
