With reference to thread No. 62210 it turns out the sensor on the side of radiator activates a low level alarm which is a warning lamp only. I would really like to add an audible alarm but not sure where to start??

I think you mean thread 68211 ;)

Thanks Tony. Yes Im aware of the product and it sounds ok. However I would like wire a audible alarm to the existing sensor if at all possible. Cheers

Why not just buy a cheap buzzer at jaycar and wire it in series to the warning light.

How hard would it be for manufacturers of modern electronically controlled vehicles/engines to connect the three major gauges, engine oil pressure, engine temp and low coolant alarms to the ECU to actually make an audible alarm and STOP the engine.
But as we know they make the vast majority of vehicles to last 5 years and then replacement required.
Wouldn't sell too many new ones and the service and parts income would drop if they made them reliable either. ;-))

No not specifically, but now that you mention it maybe they should fit EGT and boost pressure gauges as standard.
I lent a boost gauge to a friend to try on his "grenade" , got a phone call as the gauge was pegged at full scale with about 2/3rds throttle up a hill, it only went to 25psi!!
I suggested he drive home very slowly and take it back to Nissan for checking as it had only done10k.
