Weird electronic event

Recommended Posts

Was driving the '95 Cutlass with the top down today and found out that there is a warning chime if you forget your turn signal is on too long (top down, didn't hear the clicking), and when I turned off the turn signal, my stock stereo got much louder. It never was very loud, but now suddenly it seems to be quite powerful.

I found out awhile back the CS has this feature.  I haven't tried it out on my 96 CS winter car yet but apparently my 91 International is suppose to have it too.  Not sure if the other W's have this feature.

My 96 has the turn signal warning. I don't know if the 95 does or not because I haven't left them on yet. 

Second Gen W-Bodies do the bongs and beeps through the stereo, at least the Monte does but neither of my First Gens do though so I'd wager these events are not related in your Cutlass.

I'm going to try the 96 winter car when I get it back and see if it does it, it should.  The first gen CS' are suppose to do it according to the window sticker for my 89 International, not sure about the 91 International, I don't have the original window sticker for it but I would think it would do it too.

It seems to be a hit or miss feature. None of my 1G Grand Prixs ever had it. I think they all probably got it with the late 1G dash redesign.

Only certain 2Gs do this, and as far as I know only the Chevys. The Pontiacs and Buicks definitely do not.

Edit for clarification: the bong through the radio, not the turn signal chime. All 2Gs have the chime AFAIK.

My '93 GP and the '94 Regal have it for sure. Not sure about the TGP's as I've never left the signal on to check. I quickly flipped through a 1990 owner's manual and don't see anything about it in those.

 

I still have the '01 GTP owner's manual and it says it has this feature on page "2-48" and that you'll get a chime if the signal is left on for more than 3/4 of a mile.

I found my 89 International's window sticker, pretty cool that it has this feature.  I'm waiting to hear back from MemphisMan on his 91 CS coupe to find out if they do it too.

My friend Danielle and I were just talking about it as her Park Avenue has it and she did not know. I liked it on my '94 Cutlass enough that I integrated it in to my 1989 GMC.

Chime via radio on some vehicles doesn't concern me.  Having the turn signal affect the volume of the radio does.
