Lights on warning bleeper

Post by CitroenCrazy »

This is, I know, a daft question, but should my car have a bleeper to alert me that the lights are on, the ignition is off and the door open ?

Vehicle is a 1989 DTR Turbo saloon.
Self evidently, the function in question is absent & I'm wondering whether it's there but faulty or not fitted.
It's that time of year when it's easy to set off in the dark, get to work in the light & come out in the afternoon to a flat battery.

TIA

Andrew

Yes your car probably has such a bleeper.

Do the courtesy lights come on properly - ie when the doors are opened? The warning alarm uses the courtesy light switches in the door pillars - and so when these switches fail so does the alarm. New switches are only about £1.50.

It lives on the bottom steering cowling cover. White box with a blue circular lid type thing on the top.
Smokes lots, because enough's enough already!

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...

Perhaps somebody forgot to reconnect the wires to the beeper after having removed the cowling, as I once did.

If the white relay box is missing rather than disconnected, I've got a spare.
Occasionally constrained by geography. When not driving, can rely on ferry, two wheels and musclepower when a couple of miles as the crow flies would become a round-road-trip ten times the distance.
