    ok.. when you open the door to your car... a bell goes off. this bell continues untill you close the door, right? Well, what i want to know, is what this bell is formally called. Any ideas?

    thanks,
    Slick

    I have know idea if there is a proper name for that alarm, however I can tell you that in Australia "dingers" refers to a totally different product! :eek:

    I was expecting this thread to be about something else...

    I just call it well... I don't know what to call it either.

    I've never had to use it in a discussion, so I have no name for it.

    Thanks for beating me to it...

    Why does your annoying beeping sound come on if keys are not in the car... that needs to be fixed:p

    Cheers
