Key buzzer and headlight buzzer standard?
#1
Hi,

I'm working on getting all of my electrical issues sorted out on my 73 vert and since my key in the ignition buzzer and headlight buzzer aren't working, the first thing I thought I'd check is "Do they all have these?"

Also the wiring diagram makes reference to the fact that these buzzers are located on the relay panel above the glove box. Does that make sense?

Thanks all!
Scott

Yes they all had them as standard equipment and yes they are above the glove box.

If you remove the 2 screws on top of the dash and the 8-10 screws going into the dashpad across the front, then the pad and whatever you call the metal piece it is attached to pull straight back about an inch and then lift out and you can see where the buzzers plug up. I disconnected mine because I hate the sound of them, but they are easy to get to.

"I love my Hookers!" and "Get some Strange" probably have a different connotation to non automotive enthusiasts!

Thanks for the info. I know I've got a problem with my ignition switch which I'll be changing out as soon as I can. I'd really like the headlight buzzer to work since where I drive I often have my headlights on during the day and more than once I've left them on after I've parked it.

There isn't an indicator for the e-brake being on is there? I've got gauges, not idiot lights.

On the 73's (not sure on the other years) the lights-on warning headlight buzzer was optional according to the owners manual. My 73 convertible has the ignition and seat belt warning buzzers, but no headlight buzzer. I wish I had that buzzer too.

Do you know of an e-brake indicator on cars equipped with gauges?

You will see an optional Parking Brake warning light to the left of the headlight switch.

the brake light in the cluster is associated with the distribution block and line pressures, I believe. Mine is unplugged and taped over from the back side.

Wow, a picture really is worth a 1,000 words. Thanks for the link to the photos. Turns out that the Canepa collection/business is only about 45 minutes from me. Maybe I should take the Mrs. for a drive... Smile
