I personally think is it crass and annoying to be beeped at by cars that emit loud noised and even honk their horn when the car is remotely locked. The 92 SC400 remote lock won't respond farther than 3 feet from the car. Consequently it is kind of nice just hearing the doors lock or unlock when you press the key button. No loud noised are required or necessary. LS400's have a volume control on their smart key controlled cars. They are almost required because the car is so quiet. And you can adjust it so you don't annoy others.

Along these lines, there's nothing more annoying than a car in a parking lot with it's horn going off due to it's security system. And absolutely no one is paying attention or calling the cops for that matter.

jayclapp, I agree with you regarding alarm systems blaring incessantly but this is just a simple beep to inform the owner that doors have been locked or unlocked when performing the mundane and very automatic task of pressing a remote button.

I suppose you aren't obsessive-compulsive or simply forgetful? I find that an audible sound helps prevent me from walking halfway across a parking lot, panicking and turning around to physically pull on the door handle to confirm I've locked my car. Or always peering into my windows to physically look at my door locks every time I lock the car.

I agree that some cars overdo it. In this case, it's very easy to assume your car is locked (or panic thinking you left it unlocked regardless of logic) because the sound of the mechanism itself is very faint and near imperceptible as to which mode it is in.

Where exactly did you tap the 12V for the lock? Was this at the fuse box? And the piezo buzzer... was that hooked up directly or did you use a relay?

If a relay is better (and to prevent battery drain) I think I'd be inclined again to use this beeper device. What do you think:

lol funny u should post that.. i saw that yesterday around the same time u posted that.. you could get that and u only need relay if u wants your lights to flash.. my method is cheapest and easiest.. its basically just one wire.. from the 12v lock to the buzzer.. you can use the body as ground at the buzzer location.

my beeper is loud enough to hear, not loud to be annoying and sounds almost like all factory toyotas!

the beeper is RadioShack 86dB Piezo Buzzer part number 273-060

idk i think its possible but improbable. im fine with the oem key or just manually locking it. im not lazy where i have to press a button.

i agree however there are some very smooth chirps some cars have that i actually enjoy hearing, meanwhile it assures me the car is indeed "armed". a safety satisfaction is a must for all vehicles.

Getting back to this, finally. Tonight I ordered the KP Technologies beep module. I'll post my results with it here.

The KP Technologies beeper module came in today. I don't have time to dive into the wiring now but I will soon.

Mjmpro, if it's still available at all it's whatever is left over in the parts inventory and we'd need a specific Toyota/Lexus P/N. I don't believe there was any such option for SC's. What exactly did this "Sight and Sound" package do?
