Back in the 80's i built Lots and LOTS of mini trucks for people. One of the most requested item was to install Bitching Betty. Anyone that drove a Higher end nissan (maxima 300zx ect) knows who bitching betty is. For those that dont, Its a Audible Control Warning Module . AKA Bitching Betty. Instead of hearing the DING DING DING you hear "Your emergency Brake is ON" Left door is open, right door is open, rear trunk is open, headlights are on, key is in the ignition, Warning fuel level is low.. Just thought it was time for a Old school upgrade and Bury the BDT for good. Demo on how it works

And yes it does mute your stereo when you tap the speaker leads.

Betty's boyfriend worked for Chrysler I think.....he was in my '85 LeBaron sedan. It took me 3 months to kill that guy. Every week or so he would say "your door is ajar".....and then shut up for another week.

Worked with Chrysler in 80-81. The module had a switch on the back. If I remember right it was English/Spanish German/French.
Sometimes when we got a salesman Demo request, we would switch it to screw with them. Of course we would get it back pretty quick to switch it back. The service reps would always be rolling.
It always seemed that the voice had a lisp. Imagine Daffy Duck or Silvester saying "the key is in the ignition"

I had one in my Chrys New Yorker. I was driving down the highway when it came on and told me I was low on gas. I kept driving trying to find a gas station and it kept telling me I was low on gas. That went on for a time when I said "I know I'm low so shut up". I disconnected it when I got home. Never heard another word.

I remember going on a school field trip when I rode with somebody's parents who had a brand new car. It had that Chrysler information center thing. Every time one of the kids opened a door, the LED display would light up and Bitching Bill would announce what was going on. It was the 80s, and I loved computers, so I thought it was the most awesome car I had ever seen.

I wonder if they ever offered this on the 3rdgen Trans-Am. Too bad the voice doesn't match KITT though.


For anyone wondering, here's some demos of what some Chrysler versions were like:
1986 Laser
1987 New Yorker
1986 New Yorker versus Speak and Spell
