Default 6 volt signal flasher with beeper

Where can one purchase a 6 volt turn signal flasher with a beeper. I have a bad habit of leaving my turn signal on after the turn.
Someone must make these things!

Just buy a beeper that will operate on 6vdc and wire it ACROSS the flasher terminals. Simple effective cheap.

The ones built for motorcycles similar to this one should work.

Bratton's sells them for both 6V and 12V. I have the 6V version in my car, works great. The switch is hidden under the left side of the dash, the beeper is behind the dash. I took it a step further and made a small bracket that peeks out under the dash and has green and red flasher lights. The kit also includes an emergency flasher switch that flashes everything like a modern car.

Bought mine from Bratton's several years ago on 6V. It works great. The buzzer is loud enough that you won't forget to cancel the signals.

I drilled a hole through one of the screws that hold the dash rail on and slid a small led through it, also have another for the high beams. I also have a beeper. Louder than hell when stopped but can hardly hear it when running up through the gears! Besides, in the center my wife can see it also and remind me to turn the blinkers off.

If you can find a 6v relay you can set the buzzer up so it doesn't buzz when your foot is in the brake pedal. That way you don't have to listen to it when you are approaching an intersection or stopped.

I really like that. Sounds like a great place to hide the light!
