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
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
The UCH (Unite Centrale Habitacle) is an electronic control module that is fitted to many late model Renaults (early 2000's onwards.) It is responsible for controlling many of the non-engine related functions of the car, such as central locking, electric windows, and even some of the lights (e.g. indicators.)
A brand new UCH is supplied with a blank memory. This must be coded (using the Renault Clip computer) to match the serial number of the ECU and key/card before it will work with the car. The memory can only be written once, so a used UCH cannot be taken from a donor vehicle to be used in another unless the ECU and keyfobs/cards are also transferred.
Why is it the older I get .... the better I think I was ?
