  • 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...

  • Replacement Back-Up Bulb With Audible Alert For 2013 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 Pickup Truck
  • I did some research on your 2013 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 pickup. According to the owners manual, the back-up lamp for your pickup is 1156. For a replacement bulb with the audible alert you would want part # HM20100VA. 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.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Backup Alert for a 2010 Freightliner Sprinter 2500
  • I did a little research and your 2010 Frieghtliner Sprinter 2500 uses a 7506 reverse light bulb. We do not 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. You can mount this guy under the vehicle and wire it into a reverse light circuit. It will be louder at 97 decibels and more effective compared to the replacement bulb type. I have included a link to a video showing an installation for you.

  • 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.

  • Reverse Light Replacement Bulb Backup Alert Recommendation for a 2005 Kia Sedona
  • You would have to check the bulb type on the reverse lights for your 2005 Kia Sedona. The Hopkins Backup Alert, # HM20101VA, would replace a 3156 bulb. From what I could find, your van uses 1156 style bulbs. If this is the case, you would need to use Hopkins Backup Alert, # HM20100VA, which fits in place of a 1156 bulb.

  • Back Up Alert Recommendation for a 2008 Toyota highlander Hybrid
  • We carry 2 alarms that fit in the light socks of the reverse lights. One is # HM20101VA that you have already determined does not fit. The other is # HM20100VA, which definitely will not fit. What I recommend is the Surface Mount Back-up Alarm, # BK97DB. You can mount this device under the vehicle.

  • 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...

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.

  • 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.

  • Yes, the Hopkins Backup Alert # HM20100VA that you referenced will work in a 1141 bulb socket. 1141 and 1156 bulbs are very similar with the only difference being that the 1156 operates at a lower resistance so it will burn brighter and hotter than a 1141.
