Volvo 1800S Headligt Flasher Relay Wiring
by David Curtis Smith

The turn signal switch can momentarily activate the headlight high beams by pulling it toward the steering wheel. This was intentionally disabled in US bound cars. Three wires should still be in the wire loom in the firewall: violet, blue/white and violet/brown. Use a standard four pin SPST relay and connect as shown in the diagram

Headlight on warning buzzer
by David Curtis Smith

Standard SPDT (single pole double throw) relay and a Piezo buzzer. Both of these items can be found on eBay for less than $2 each. The alarm sounds when you shut off the engine with the lights still on. Sounds like a smoke detector, so it gets your attention.
