One thing i did notice is when i plug in the wires like the diy says, and once i lock or unlock the door the buzzer chirps very very faintly, like its not getting enough power. So looks like i might need a relay of some sort....however im too lazy and put everything back together, will try it later if i feel like it
Is there a solution to this problem? I'm having the same issues. My lights flash upon lock and unlock, and I've got the blinking clown nose. Still only produces a faint faint sound when I lock and unlock wired like the diagram, and a constant loud sound when wired like cowspoo's way.

Edit: Turns out it was the buzzer itself. I thought because it had managed to give a constant chirp when rewired it wasn't at fault, but I stand corrected. Went to Radioshack and bought the 102 db instead of the 90 db I had and guess what? It works like a charm. Wonder if it had to do with the fact that the 90 db buzzer had a gray wire for positive instead of red?
