so this is the first time i have come across this..and i have taken out stereos in alot of ea82's

so the stock deck in my 87 coupe has the "dummy panel" on the right where the trip computer would go. however when I removed the trim plate i found a black plastic box about the size of a pack of cigs next to the deck. it had a harness plugged into it. the only thing i noticed when i unpluged it, is that my door chime stopped (i had the keys in and the door open).

so what is it, and what is it's purpose?

I thought it was the seat belt timer? I took mine out and my "fasten belts" light no longer works (I'm smart enough to wear mine so I dont' need the stupid light to remind me :D)

:lol:

I'm sorry, but that exchange struck me as really funny. That's such a 3 am post. Or 2, Pacific time.

Er, um, never mind me.
