....It's more of a technological collision.....
No...I didn't crash my Jetta....but I was working on my GLI restoration today and when I turned the ignition on...I heard one of the best sounds a VW owner can hear....that 3 toned door chime that many hapless Canadian Tire/Jiffy Lube mechanics believe is the German national anthem...
I know some people hate that chime...but it's something that I remember as a kid about my parent's MkII Jetta. In any case, I was thinking....how hard would it be to integrate into my new Jetta?
Looking at the relay that produces said noise, the pins are pretty standard - although I can't for the life of me remember what 85, 86, 15, G and L are for
31 - Ground
The logic in the MkII was that this little relay controlled would turn on the seat belt light on the instrument panel and play the chime for about 3 or 4 seconds when the car was started...then as long as the key was in the ignition and the driver's door was open, the chime would play.
Any of the electrical gurus in this forum who can break down how I would wire this into my MkV as well as the ID of the remaining pins will get their choice of A) a $10 Tim Horton's Gift card or B) a $10 Starbucks Gift-card or 3) a $10 LCBO gift-card.
If we were back in the pre-9/11 aviation world, I'd offer a jump-seat ride in the cockpit of the A330...but since it's 2012....I'm going to appeal to the caffeine addiction I'm sure the majority of this forum has.
