My seat belt light comes on at random. I don't want to spend hours wringing out the wiring if I don't have to, so does anyone know where the location of this problem might be? It's kind of irritating when it happens, and I'd be as happy as a pig in mud if the lamp just burnt out...

I've been around a while and I've learned that most people have no clue at all.


Perhaps one of the connectors is loose?

I figure the way it works is that the circuit provides the ground for the lamp, and that there are switches in the female half of the seat belt buckles that break the circuit when the male half is inserted. That said, any break in the circuit should keep the lamp from coming on, as would a failure of the switch in the buckle. That means there must be a frayed wire somewhere in the circuit that makes contact with ground when I drive over a bump or the vehicle vibrates enough to move a wire. I just can't imagine where this might occur, as I don't think there are that many locations next to ground where a wire could flex enough to become frayed. Does anyone have any different thoughts on this?
