Where can I buy an extra loud flasher? I have exhausted the internet, all dead ends. NAPA claims to have one, but it doesn't work or only has 2 prongs.
This must be available for the hearing impaired or noisy vehicles.

I don't know of an extra loud flasher but you could install a couple of small bright lights that you could see instead. It could be installed with clamp and plug in connections if it needed to be removed for judging.


How Sweet the roar of a Chevy four!

Go to radio shack and buy a small buzzer, wire it in the flasher feed to switch circuit, they are available in 6 or 12 volt and can be easily hidden.

Thanks for the tip on the radio shack buzzer. It worked perfectly and installed very easily.

Chipper,

I also tried the Radio Shack route, but the buzzer wasn't loud enough to make a difference.

So, I installed one of these in my '36FB to help me remember to cancel the signal after turning. I works great, and believe me you can't forget to turn it off! Turn Alarm
