My first post so be kind!

Is it possible to increase the volume on the rear parking warning device? It is high pitched and rather quiet so some members of the community have difficulty hearing it. (me)

The other warning that needs to be louder is the Speed Alarm.

A dealer said that there were no Honda approved modifications for these sounds.

Any suggestions?

So much for highly trained dealers.
There is a sequence for "self diagnostic and loudness setting" of the reversing sensor system, I know because I retro fitted the genuine Honda sensors and in the Honda instructions there is a page on how to use the "self diagnostics ". Not only can it set the loudness but it can tell you which sensor has failed and even if the control unit itself is faulty.
Unfortunately the unit is normally "factory-set" to maximum. I found mine was to low even on maximum so I moved the sounder to a position under the rear seats.
The dealer either genuinely does not Know about the diagnostics "so much for dealer training" or they don't want to do it because it is a nightmare taking all the trim out of the right hand side of the boot just to get to the diagnostic connection on the revering sensors.
