  1. When should the wire that goes to the seatbelt be hot and how long should it be hot? I am trying to get everything working on my car and the seatbelt warning chime does not work. I can't seem to detect it as hot at any time. According to the wiring diagrams it shows that this comes off the cigarette lighter fuse and that fuse is good. The cigar lighter works. Thanks.
  2. Ya'll are right it snaps into 2 holes in the floor-board but be careful when poping it out are you will break the plastic like I did. I just did not think about cutting the carpet away from the pedal this would have made it alot easier. thanks again for all the help. Tom-Ala
  3. I need someone to tell me how to remove the gas pedal , I'm installing new carpet. I don't have the tool that the manual shows. thanks again Tom-Ala
  4. Antenna relay was good the problem was in the wiring connection to the relay under the hood. I checked for current at the connection & was getting juice so I pulled the antenna , but with a battery it checked out ok, the wiring connection was corroded I cleaned it out real good put the antenna back in & everthing is working great, just a lot of work for something so simple. I have also found my short on the gage fuse , I checked so many things but I think it was the wire to the oil sending unit. thanks for all the help folks. Tom-Ala
  5. This wire connects to the trunk opening button inside the glovebox, it connects to the back of the button. Tom-Ala
