I have a 2011 Mondeo Titanium 2L estate. The audible indicator warning inside the car is hard to hear at moderate to high speeds on motorways and consequently can get left on sometimes. Very annoying to others! Is there any simple easy means to increase the volume does anyone know. Is it resetable via a control system? Is it a relay as older cars? Any help could be good, thanks.

Hi Mike,
I have similar trouble with the focus,
The system on all cars now is an electronic timer so the original relay click has been replaced with the sound effect of its predecessor,
Unfortunitly the sound is emitted by a small speaker in the rear of the speedo cluster and can be difficult to hear.
To date their is no model equiped with means of adjusting its volume.

You could fit arrow wing mirror lenses which wire in to the indicators loom,
Stay hidden behind the glass until illuminated and visible to you inside the car.

No prob mate,
If you shop around some sellers sell them already attached to the mirror glass,
Nice modification too.
