  • Tail Light Back-Up Alarm Recommendation for Use on a 2003 Dodge Ram 2500
  • I spoke with my contact at Hopkins and he informed that you would need a Hopkins Backup Alert - Replacement 3156 Bulb with Audible Alert, part # HM20101VA. He informed me that this style of tail light is the same as the one that is in your 2003 Dodge Ram 2500 and would work great.

  • Surface Mount Backup Alert Recommendation for a 2010 Honda Odyssey
  • At this time we do not carry a reverse light backup alert for your 2010 Honda Odyssey LX. I spoke with my contact at Hopkins and they do not have anything for the 7440 series bulb that is in your vehicle. You still have an option for an audible back-up alarm. You could use a Surface Mount Back-up Alarm # BK97DB. You will need to hardwire this unit into your reverse light circuit to install this product, but it would work as a back up alarm.

  • Is the Hopkins Backup Alert, # HM20100VA a Universal Application
  • The Hopkins Backup Alert, # HM20100VA, is not a universal application, though it does fit many vehicles. It fits into a common bulb size socket. You will need to check the bulbs on your vehicle or vehicles to determine if they take the 1156 bulb. If they do, then you can use this alert. Another common bulb size is 3156. If your vehicle or vehicles have this bulb number, they can use # HM20101VA. These are the only 2 alerts of this type that we carry. But we do have other options such as th

  • Back-up Alert Recommendation for a 2004 Toyota 4Runner
  • In terms of a Hopkins Backup Alert with a light that plugs into the tail light socket, we only have # HM20100VA and # HM20101VA which cover the two most common sizes (1156 and 3156). What I recommend for you on your 2004 Toyota 4Runner is the Custer Surface Mount Back-up Alarm, # BK97DB. This unit can be mounted in an out of the way place at the back of the vehicle. It will connect to a reverse light circuit behind one of the vehicle tail lights and will pump out 97 decibels of sound when the

  • Back Up Alert Recommendation for Vehicles Without 1156 or 3156 Bulbs
  • For replacement bulbs that also have a built-in back up alarm, we only have 2 options. One fits in place of a 1156 bulb, # HM20100VA, and the other fits in place of a 3156 bulb, # HM20101VA. You can actually use a 3156 in a 3157 socket. The only difference is that 3157 has a dual filament that 3156 does not have. What I recommend is the surface mount alarm, # BK97DB. At 97 decibels, this alert can definitely be heard at the rear of the vehicle. installation is simple; the alert can mount to a

  • What is the Correct Back up Bulb with Audible Alert for a 2008 Ford F-350

  • Backup Alarm Recommendation for a 2011 Dodge Ram 3500
  • While we do not carry a backup alert bulb for your 2011 Dodge Ram you could install a Surface Mount Back-up Alarm # BKUP-97 which would give you the same effect. You could install it inline with the purple wire of your 7-way. You would cut the purple wire and then attach one end of the wire to one of the contact studs and then attach the other wire to the other stud, and then when there is voltage on this circuit the voltage will run through the # BKUP-97 activating the alarm and then go to t

  • Options for Backup Alert System that is Louder than the Hopkins Replacement Bulb with Audible Alert
  • If you are looking for a product that produces an alarm at a higher volume when backing up, then I would recommend the Custer Surface Mount Back-up Alarm, part # BK97DB. This unit mounts directly to the exterior of your vehicle and produces audible levels of 97db which should be what you are looking for. The Custer Back-up Alarm has a slight advantage because it is not mounted in the taillight compartment where the volume can be slightly hindered. This unit receives power from the reverse lig

  • Will the Alert Still Sound if the Bulb Burns Out on Hopkins Backup Alert # HM20100VA
  • I spoke with my contact at Hopkins about the Backup Alert, # HM20100VA. He stated that if is the bulb that burns out then the alert will still sound. If it burns out before the unit in the receptacle where it plugs in (meaning no power reaches the unit) then neither the bulb nor the alert will function.

  • Backup Alert Recommendation for a 2011 Chevy Impala
  • From what I found, the 2011 Chevy Impala uses 921 reverse light bulbs so the Hopkins Backup Alert # HM20100VA will not fit. I recommend the surface mount alarm, # BK97DB. You can mount this under the vehicle on the frame, wire it up to the reverse light circuit on the vehicle, and it should work well for you.

  • Backup Alert Recommendation for a 2008 Kia Sportage
  • The 2008 Kia Sportage uses 921 reverse light bulbs. I do have an option for a backup alert but one that fits as a replacement in the bulb socket is not available for the Sportage. Instead, you can use # BK97DB. This is a surface mount unit that wires into a reverse light wire. You can mount it underneath the vehicle on the frame or any flat surface that is convenient for you.

  • Backup Alerts for a 2012 Ford F-150 and 2005 Toyota Tacoma
  • The 2012 Ford F-150 most likely uses a 921 reverse light bulb. The 2005 Toyota Tacoma uses the same bulb. A back up alert that fits into the light socket is not available in this bulb size. But I do have something that you can use on either vehicle. You can use the surface mount back up alarm, # BK97DB. It attaches under the vehicle and will wire into the reverse light circuit.

  • Back Up Alarm Recommendation for a 2000 Fleetwood Tioga Class C RV on Ford Van Chassis
  • The 1999 Ford E-350 uses a 3156 bulb for reverse lights but you will have to pull the bulb on your RV to determine if it is the same. It should be printed on the unit somewhere or could be in the literature for the RV. If it is a 3156 bulb then you would use # HM20101VA. If it is not a 3156 or an 1156 (used with # HM20100VA that you referenced) there is an alternative solution. You could mount backup alert # BK97DB under the RV and wire it into a reverse light wire. This alert is going to be

  • Backup Alarm Recommendation for a 2009 Ford Flex SEL
  • From what I could find your 2009 Ford Flex uses a 921 reverse light bulb. We only have backup alert replacement bulbs for 1156 and 3156 bulbs so neither would fit your Flex. but we do have a solution that you can use. You can use the Custer Surface Mount Back-up Alarm, # BK97DB. It mounts outside of the vehicle and receives power from the reverse light circuit on the vehicle. It will actually be louder than the bulb type alarms.

  • Will Hopkins Backup Alert Light HM20100VA Fit Commodore Sports Wagon
  • The Hopkins Backup Alert, part # HM20100VA, is not a universal fit, but does work on vehicles that use the 1156 bulb as a backup bulb. This replaces the backup bulb on the vehicle. When the car is put in reverse, the 12V halogen bulb lights up and the base emits a beeping sound, which will alert anyone behind the vehicle. Another backup alert we carry is part # HM20101VA. This would replace 3156 bulbs, and has the same functions as the HM20100VA. You will want to consult your owners manua

We do not currently have a bulb replacement with backup alert for the 7506 bulb but I do have a solution for you. Take a look at Surface Mount Back-up Alarm # BK97DB.
