    Hi there.

    The other morning I found my FR-V completely drenched - once again we forgot to close the sunroof, and this time it was pouring rain! Fortunately my insurance covers this - all carpeting, seats etc. are taken off, wiring checked - and of course dried and dehumidified.

    My question is this: Isn't there supposed to be some sort of warning beep, when you lock or leave the car with open roof? It beeps about the seat-belts, keys in ignition etc. - but this one seems much more important. Might it be possible to have some kind of beep-reminder installed for this purpose??

    I don't think there is any sunroof reminder beep. Should be interesting to know if there is a retrofit device out there to enable that

    How about connecting a module to close the sunroof when you lock the car?

    There is no beeping I have moved this thread into the FR-V section from general chat.

    I bet the window one would work.
    It's only a signal isn't it.
    But then if wired up like the mirrors it'll open it too.
    I guess with a bit of trial and error you could work out the open wire

    Correct, window module will do. The window module only closes. So it won't open when the car is unlocked.

    People may think it's chavvy but I love fog lights.
    Wonder if they do an ICE white version?

    Fogl lights look great - but I find them not at all useful in fog. Seems like they just light up the sides of the car. Anyway, they were standard on the FR-V here in Denmark. In the later years the FR-V was only sold in the "Executive" version - which also includes a sunroof without warning beeps. :-\
