Hey all.

I've been having problems with the seatbelt sensor thing. I'm curious if any of you know how to completely disable it?

I'm on a 74 1400.

Thanks,
-Dusty-

I've never even heard of this feature on these cars...
Guessing its just a simple on/off switch type circuit, find the wires, and either join them or disconnect them depending on how it works..

It is the ignition interlock and it is very possible that it only came on the 74s.

The issue i have is that if i remove the relay, and jump the wires that would allow me to start the car, my lights no longer work. I'm going to sit down with the wiring diagram today and see what i can figure out.

Thanks,
-Dusty-

You'll probably have it figured out by the time I get an answer. I can't remember,but its easy enough. My buddy Charlie or my brother will know.

That feature was also on the '73 and maybe '72 as well in the 1400 Coupe.

Thanks though.

Other solution would be to connect the S terminal of the ignition to the starter directly, and completely bypass the starter interlock. It was somewhat of a sophisticated system, switches in both front seats AND in the seatbelts, and the system has to see the seat switch close BEFORE the seat belt switch, or it won't start (to prevent you from just connecting the belt and leaving it)
