I dont recall if S12's got a bitching betty, bit I figured Ill post this over here too since its kinda cool lol
also for some technical reference if anyone wanted to add one. Ill be wiring this one up in my 510 just for nostalgia lulz
So in 82 or so Datsun/Nissan added an audible warning system to some models like the 810 Maxima, the 280zx and the Z31 300zx.
instead of dings you get "Left door is open," "Right door is open," "Parking brake is on," "Fuel level is low," "Keys in the ignition," and "Lights are on".
This was some top of the line shit back then haha and seeing as it was before the age of digital recordings...
what did Nissan do?
They created a mini phonograph!
it uses a 3 inch white plastic record cut with six grooves, one for each command.
With a stylus that drops in the correct groove for each command.
I took mine apart to snap some pics of the inner workings
