    Default Help buzzer

    Hey guys

    This afternoon I went to hang out with a good friend of mine. Parked the car and all was good. Came back to the car and found that the seat belt light - red - was on and the buzzer would make noise until I put my seatbelt on. Car started and drove just fine but the light never came off and no matter what I did - including turning the car off - the buzzer will be on with the seat belt off. Anyone have ideas on how this can be fixed?

    Thanks

    Disconnect the wiring to the buzzer!

    yeah, unplug the sumbitch! I dumped all the Fed imposed crap decades ago: seat belt warning including under seat sensor, ignition interlock and other junk. Car still starts and runs fine..........for 39 years. I always wear my seat belt, just don't need Uncle Sam telling me to!

    Well I have discovered the source of the said issue. Unknown to me my car has a leak on the passenger's side someplace, I want to say the door but it could be the windshield. I only discovered this by taking the passenger's seat out to inspect the relays and such located underneath. Well long and behold there's a puddle of water, under which is a nice light layer of rust - clearly this has been happening for a bit. I cleaned the this afternoon and sprayed about five layers of rubberized undercoating in that area and sealed all the rubber rings. After hanging with a friend this evening I come out to find a small puddle in the same area. Come home and cleaned it out once more. I did leave the window open - oops - so its possible that this is the source. But other then the window does anyone have an idea where this leak could be. Its on the passenger's side.

    Thanks

    Common passenger side water comes from rust and or loss/cracking of sealing compound around the fresh air chimney/cowl seam above the fan, or the windshield weatherstrip. It leaks under the dash where you can't see then finds its way down the firewall to a low spot on the floor and sits there.

    Strip out the carpet and whatever you have covering the firewall and get a pail of water and start dosing it.

    Hey guys

    Question. What is the little rubber weatherstripping on the front top side of the door - nearest the fender - called? Today in Tucson it was exceptionally rainy and after hanging with a friend I found a nice small puddle of water. The passenger's side door was covered in water and the trail seemed to originate there. I'll do the pail trick this weekend - I'll use a hose instead - so that's a good idea.

    Thanks
