[DML] ELECTRICS OF DRIVERS SEATBELT



Okay, for anyone that has been following this little
mini-saga, I finally found the male plug that the
female end from the seat belt attaches to.  I had to
remove the entire console, AGAIN, and it was under the
carpet and console, behind the seat, on the drivers
side, about 12 inches up from the floor.  I was right
in that the red and black wires changed colors thru
the connection.  Actually, only the red one.  Black
remained black, but red changed to black/purple which
of course goes to the buzzer logic box.

One interesting side note, where the belt attaches to
the frame, the two wires are supposed to loop under
the attachment, but at some point (probably the
factory), the wires were pinched under the big
mounting washer and an intermittent open circuit was
produced, causing the system to work sometimes and
sometimes not at all.

After repairing, the ohmmeter readings I got were:

seat belt not fastened--------1 ohm
seat belt fastened------------infinity

All this makes perfect sense, because if you fasten
your seat belt, you automatically open the microswitch
and hence, remove the ground for the buzzer logic box
and it is inop.
