Device with a temperature sensor switch that activates a motion detector when temperature levels in a vehicle begin reaching dangerously cold or hot levels. If the motion detector senses movement, the vehicles lights flash and horn honks.

There have been WAY too many children dieing from being left in vans and suvs this summer.

       Great idea, [jc]. Although I fear those who leave kids in cars would rely on this too much, and others might just think it's a car alarm and ignore it. Perhaps combine it with an auto-window-rolldown feature.

       people leave kids in cars ? .. jeeeez. bones I'm afraid because anything that encourages stupid people to be more stupid should be discouraged. [shift]'s argument can be sorted with a simple car alarm to alert the parents

       "Hello, this is OnStar. How can I help you?"
"Da."
"Sorry?"
"Bewweeeeenonantooo!"
"I'm sorry, I don't understand"
"DoDoDoDoDoDo."
"I'm afraid there's something wrong with the connection. Please call back later."

       Alarm activates solar powered air conditioning?   

       Or skip the alarm and just add solar powered air conditioning. Aaah, a cool car to climb into in the summertime.
