Default Light alarm buzzer

Does anyone know where the buzzer is for letting you know that you have left your ligts on when you get out of the car?
My partner is hard of hearing and has done this on a few occasions because she simply cant hear the buzzer. I was toying with the idea of wiring a small LED light into the circut and placing it where it would be visable so she could check before she left the vehicle.
Does anyone know where the wiring is and what voltage the buzzer is?
i assume that it would involve ripping the dash apart but if it saves me having to jump start the car again it would be worth it, it might be a good excuse to change the colour of the dash bulbs as well

i believe the buzzer is built into the speedo unit. not sure on voltages etc, but should be good enough for an led....but then again the lights stay on in the car to say the light are on :s

This is true but the lights stay on for a few seconds anyway so you'd have to wait to see if they go out and this isn't much good when its daytime.
I'll have a dig around and see if I can find out any more info on the wiring system.
Would the dealers give me this info or would they be cagey about doing this?

Probably doesn't need the lights on afterall then

There are lights on the dash anyhow to say the lights are on... and all dials illuminated too.... so with these and the buzzer, albeit quiet, I can't see how there is much more you can really do.

The buzzer is not only used to warn if lights are on. It beeps on engine managent problems too. So your idea about hooking an LED into it won't work.
I'd not be messing with it if i was you. The multiplex is very fickle and will cause all manner of communication problems on the network.
