Default Is it possible to mute the Defi BF's

It is it possible to mute the Defi BF's audible alarm? (lost my manual) If so, how?

I don't think you can. The only way I know you can avoid having the buzzer go off is by setting the warning point high. Not the greatest idea though, as the red lights will not turn on either.

I think the only way to get rid of the buzzing is to find where the speaker is in the control unit and disconnect it. I have never taken mine apart, so I can't speak from experience.

I'll double check the manual and see if I can find anything.

I just double checked the manual and it makes no mention of being able to turn off the buzzer for the warning. I am sure there is probably a way, but its not a built in function in the Defi-Link meter.

Why do you need to mute the alarm?

It should only be going off if you exceed the warning point.

Cover the speaker with something. Mine is rather quiet for some reason. It used to be loud in my other car.

With the temperature warning it will not go off until the temp drops below the warning point. This is the only time I have found it annoying (not sure why the original thread starter wants to turn it off).

I could see it it buzzed for a few seconds to let you know, if your not paying attention to the light on the gauge, but for those people who set the warning points well below the threshold it can get annoying.

I know with my oil temp gauge, I had it set to 100C because during normal driving it stays pretty steady at 90C. Now that we've been in the midst of pretty hot temps here in NY, during highway driving it stays closer to 100-105C. I just set the warning point higher (110C) and check the gauge more often as I am driving.

Thanks for the responses. I wanted to turn it off because one of the guages is linked to the chain but the actual sensor is not installed yet...so it basically always reads 0 (the audible alarm turns off for this guage when I start the car though.) Also, when I am just sitting there, lets say listening to the radio with the engine off, the oil press goes off...I guess I could just unplug the unit if I know I am gonna be sitting for a while.

You need to rewire the defi link controller to stop the warning buzzer when the key is in the ACC position. I tapped into the far left bottom fuse for the IGNITION wire. Gauges only power up when the key is turned to ignition.

I can post a tomorrow if you need one.

its simple.... if you want to shut up the gauges warning, you just hit "play" and then hit either rewind or FF... then it will pause the "play" and the noise will go away (assuming your talking about when your engine isn't on and you want to listen to music etc.)... ez fix, unless u really wanna go through all the trouble of rewiring...
