Hey guys! How ya doin'?

So, quick question.

I'm buying my first car soon. Either a Nissan 240SX or Ford Probe GT. There's one thing that I require to be on the car.

The AE86's "Speed Warning" alert chime.

I'm wondering if it's possible to put the sound in the car and have it go off at 100 KPH (or around 60 MPH since I'm American).

Help?

That's a really good question ~ hopefully someone here could answer .. cause frankly this kind of thing is foreign to modern American vehicles 🎵

I have the sound downloaded onto my phone, and it'd be funny to hear that chime all the way down the American highways since the speed limit is usually 75 mph.

Over here on Interstate 10 the limit within the city is 60 and 75 on the outskirts ~ I personally love the way the Star Road Tokyo yellow Zed's startup sound goes .. with the Defi gauges & the girl saying some warning.

Definitely something you don't see in cars outside of Japan ~ 🎶

First issue will be finding the chime unit. If you can get one from the actual AE86, then great. If not, a close alternative can be found on the 1994-2001 Acura Integra (it's the headlights-on-door-open chime). Once you have the unit, you will need to figure out the pinout. Most should be simple ground/+12V, so not too much trouble hopefully.

Then you want it to trigger at a certain speed. This will depend on how the vehicle in question reads speed. Does it use a speedometer cable, or does it have a vehicle speed sensor? If it uses a VSS system, use an oscilloscope to figure out the pulse that is associated with the speed you want to trigger your chime at. If it has no VSS, you'll have to go old-school and figure out a way to put a microswitch on the gauge needle mechanism that trips 'on' when the needle turns past the speed you want.

For the VSS, now rig up an 'interpreter' board (Arduino, for instance) that applies power to the chime unit when it receives the proper VSS pulse.

And if all of that went over your head, then chances are you won't be able to put the AE86 speed warning on a different car.

Chime unit .. so this thing's mechanical ohmy.gif ??

I'm guessing modern JDM cars with similar chimes & startups just have a chip board wired to the system.

That would annoy me to death, since I usually drive around 70 on highways

What N1 said. It's going to take a hell of an effort to implement into the car itself.

It'll be novel for the first 10 minutes on the highway... Then you'll want to KYS every time you get behind the wheel. Is it really worth the massive amount of effort to implement, just to eventually piss yourself off every time it kicks in?

Best bet if you want to see the obnoxious result of this level of fanboi-ism? Find or develop an app that plays the sound over 60mph via the GPS, and sync to bluetooth. Be cheaper and easier and completely reversible, by deleting the app and never speaking of it to anyone.

Actually a really good idea.

Listen to this man and don't do it.
I was talking to N1 about this a few days back and you hit the nail on the head and more. A lot of luxury cars actually have this, BMW's come in mind. They are however user definable, and can be user disabled.

Require is a strong word here. It'll be cool for 2 days, then you'll grow up.

Both my VWs have a speed warning that will ding once and display on the dash, but it's specifically marked in the menu in the Jetta as a 'Winter Tire Speed Warning'.

In addition to being an incomprehensible idea to begin with, you might recognize the chime on Takumi's 86 never rang more than a couple times early on in First Stage, so it was obviously disabled.
