Dash alerts too hard to hear.

    Dash alerts for various sensor systems are too high pitched to hear. I would like to change the freq or increase the volume. But can find wiring diagrams. Seems to be a secret. Where are the service documents? Had them for my 2000 tundra TRD, but it seems Toyota considers that info proprietary. Any ideas?

    Sorry for the confusion. Missed word ( not) as in cannot find wiring diagrams. They used to be available in the Service Manual set from Toyota. In Pre-OSHA days people weren’t as concerned about hearing protection? As a result many older men, shooters, heavy machine operators, etc , have high frequency hearng loss and cannot hear the typical piezo-buzzer alarms. I just wahted to intercept the signal to the oem buzzer for use as a signal to a DIY alert.

    The only audible sound my truck makes is if I leave the keys in the ignition, or my wife making comments on my driving

    Maybe your best bet would be to see if you can find the speaker that makes the noise and somehow amplify that. Sorry I’m of no more help than that.

    The alerts I am referring to are the Toyota Safety Sense-Package included in the TRD Sports Package. Alerts sound from the Lane Departure Alert (LDA), the Blind Spot Monitor (BSM), and the Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA). Alerts also are sounded when the sensors at any of the 4 corners of the truck detect objects within a few feet. Thinking about some dash mounted LEDs for a dedicated visual alert that would attract driver attention.
