Why not connect a buzzer between an ignition-live wire and the live headight wire? The buzzer will sound whenthe ignition is on with the lights off. Simple and cheap.

You could stick a lttle label on the dash "LIGHTS ON" or similar - cheap and effective

lol, been there - done that! Thinking about upgrading to a red piece of yarn around a finger...

Seriously though, AFAIK most cars in Scandinavia are sold with lamps that switch off with the ignition. This leads me to think that the car is somehow prepared for this from the factory - that there might be a really simple way of activating it by swapping a couple of wires or a relay.

The idea of installing a buzzer is a good one that I might consider if I cant get it fixed otherwise .

Hello Grandtour, I'd check with a local Renault dealer, it probably enabled in the UCH using the X-2000 or Clip tool ... may require some additional relays ....

worth asking, or speak to an auto sparkie, they should also be able to help.

Worth a try

Why is it the older I get .... the better I think I was ?
