Where does this wire go???
« on: June 29, 2013, 11:31:58 PM »
Hello! i'm doing the wiring under the dashboard and I found one black/white wire that I have no idea where it goes, I have pictures so you can see. I does not come from the fuse box, the  picture shows in comes from the wiring harness the goes under the dash.

I has one black female connector on it and its quite long! I have tried finding it in manuals and wire diagrams on this site but no luck. all hints and help will be much appreciated!

Thanks!

I believe that wire runs under the carpet to the driver side seat belt retractor and connects to the retractor switch for the seat belt warning buzzer.  You can verify by looking at the GM factory 83 Wiring Manual, or the more generalized 81-87 Instrument Panel, Page 2 and 81-87 Cab Interior, Page 2.

It's difficult to know just how much you don't know until you know it.
In other words... if people learn by making mistakes, by now I should know just about everything!!!

Mine has the same wire but mine ended up going to the dome light switch for the door.

only reason i knew that was becasue mine was tucked up under the carpet had to sit there for a hour or so and see what all it would and wouldn't reach
