    Default Question about headlights on warning buzzer on a 380?

    My son has a 380 and he left the parkers on this week and flattened the battery.

    My third gen (TH) has a warning buzzer when you open the driver's door and exit, to remind you to turn off the lights.

    Does this exist on a 380?

    (I've searched the forum but can see a discussion on this only for 3rd gens).

    Thanks

    If there isn't one then you can mallet one very easily.

    Items needed:
    1. Buzzer
    2. Add-a-circuit fuse taps (one for parker fuse and one for in fuse)
    3. Relays (one regular and one with NC pin).
    4. Some length of wiring.

    Steps:
    PM me if you need instructions.

    eBay may already have these as well.

    there is indeed a buzzer with the parkers left on....

    If you leave the headlights on ..they will turn off automatically a very short period after locking the car.

    I am sure that any state will struggle to put on an equivalent to what MMX was, it was awesome both in the aspect of events and the social aspect after cruises,

    Vlad - thanks for that advice - may be doing that if I can't get the buzzer circuit working - Maggie thanks for confirming that there is a buzzer - wonder why it's not working? Would it be a fuse? I'll check those first tomorrow.

    I thought (can't be bothered walking outside to try), the warning buzzer is for the headlights only and not the park lights?

    I've had this problem before - it's a bit unfortunate that the headlights will turn off if you forget but not the parkers.

    Don't drive around with parkers only. People can see you from behind but trust me those in front of you won't be able see you at all and that includes pedestrians who are able to crossed a road. If you insist in driving with parkers on then at the circuitry I drew up above.

    Shouldn't really be driving with just parkers ( there's a clue in the name) they are for parking that's why their is no warning��

    It's a bad design. Mitsubishi programmed the car so the power is cut if full headlights are left on and doors are locked - but they didn't think to cut the power if the parking lights are left on. I am sure many have unnecessarily had a flat battery as a result.
