There's no adjustment for turn signal volume. If it's working it's ok

Try searching places online such as JC Whitney for a "turn signal alarm". Perhaps there's something out there that can be wired into the turn signal circuit. When I was in high school my friend's Mom had a Ford Pick Up Truck that would beep when she put on the turn signal. I hated it because it sounded just like my alarm clock!! HTH. -Jim

No solution. Per my dealer, the muted sound (which I can't hear ) on my 2016 Civic is digital and intended to be that way by design. No more old world relay clicking. I find this non- sounding turn signal feature to be a flaw. I have a 2018 vehicle by another manufacture that has a digital turn signal sound which is at a volume that is audible over road noise; the way it should be... Honda needs to recall and fix their turn signal sound indicator. TDB

I ended up creating a little box that connects to the Accord F-CAN bus via the diagnostic port and sniffs for the turn signal codes and, when seen, puts out a sound that I can hear. Now I won't have to hear my wife say "your turn signals are on" ever again. The total cost of the box was less than $65 - well worth it in my book. A small mod to the program (I used an Arduino) would probably work on a Civic.

I don't have enough information (or knowledge) to make a box that identifies the turn signal code. Maybe, this type of box can be produced by an enterprising soul.

I appreciate each comment...it looks like a done deal...will have to be more visually alert, but thanks a whole lot Bart

Torino_3426, in case you're still following this tread, could you provide any more information about your project?. I'm trying to do something similar on my 2013 Accord, but I'm stuck on finding the Honda specific PID/code to get the turn signal status from OBD2. Any specific information that could provide would be greatly appreciated.
