in the doco it states:

Base and sports series clusters may or may not have provisions for the buzzer input. Unfortunately there is no information here to safely work out which model Falcons do have the buzzer in the instrument cluster (Maybe EBII Fairmont onwards???)For these models, it is safe to leave the buzzer output disconnected

I remember hooking one of these up a long time ago to an eb gli and it had the chime, my question is, what pinout would i hook it up to on a sports cluster to see if the chime is available on my current cluster?

Also from memory the cluster pin outs are numbered correct???

Cheers guys.

The 'Chime' is built in to the Trip Computer itself.

That's what I thought, so there is no need to wire anything up for the chime then? Based on the doco it seems like the chime comes from the cluster, and all high series clusters have it and only some mid/ low series clusters have it. Little confused now as to what the doco refers too...

THANKS for the TEXT on the INSTALL

did you happen to find an easy way to do all this to without PULLING most of the panels and wiring, here, there and everywhere :(

I am still looking for a PLUG (12 pins) to ADD to my wiring already there in my ED Waggon

For those of your wanting good doco....
documents.php?d=82


I followed this one...very easy. Took me about an hour to do properly, hardest wire to wire into was the one on the computer coz everything is tight in the footwell. Works perfect, and buzzes when under 80kms of fuel, and when you leave headlights on. Very good $25 investment.

Cheers

just did this as well my self, very easy mod to do if you have a bit of wireing and electronic knowhow, plus the guide on here tells you exactly what to do!
and yeh the ecu wire was a little tricky, i just cut back the original tape around the loom, atached to the wire i needed then taped it all up again, cant even tell its been taped into

on ea/eb1 ghia and fairlane (digital)clusters, there is an output wire that goes to the trip computer that set off the beeper/chime when a warning lite is triggered on the cluster..
but the sport clusters and later ghia didnt have this option...

so with the sport cluster the trip comp only has the chime for the trip comp features
