    I would like to install a backup alarm to warn pedestrians that I'm backing up (not too loud). Has anyone installed one? If so, could you provide a DIY instructions? Thanks

    Decided not to get the backup alarm as it seems to annoy people more than anything :)

    Keep the peace!

    Good choice. I have them on two work vehicles. Somehow the wires were clipped. Weird......
