Oldsmobile Aurora 2001-2002, Chime Retention Interface with Built-In Speaker by Axxess®. Replacing the stereo in a late-model GM car has a down side: the seatbelt chime and the turn signal click are actually piped through the stereo and into the speakers. New stereo = no chime. This module uses a speaker built into the module to generate the chime sound.
- Provides accessory (12-volt 10-amp)
- Retains R.A.P. (Retained Accessory Power), if equipped
- Used in non-amplified systems or when replacing amplified systems
- Retains all warning chimes through onboard speaker
Ding…Ding…Ding…Ding. That's the sound of your GM car's seatbelt warning chime. And you can't hear it any more. (Is that really a bad thing? Just asking…) It's been conspicuously absent, along with the ticking of the turn signals and some other alert noises from the instrument panel, ever since you replaced your cheesy GM radio with one that's more modern, more capable and more powerful. No surprise, because the General has been doubling up lately, and using the stereo and speakers to generate those sounds. If you want those sounds back, you'll need to install this interface, which intercepts these sounds in the harness and passes them on.
Axxess® Integrate, a subsidiary of mobile audio's one-stop-shopping conglomerate Metra, is at the very forefront of the mobile audio installer's field. Their cutting-edge interfaces make adding to or installing a car stereo, nav system, sat radio or auxiliary amplifier easy. With the complexity of modern vehicles, it's not a simple operation to install aftermarket electronics that will properly interface with the car's wiring, onboard computers and OEM infotainment system. Axxess has it figured out and dialed in.
