Mysterious fuse box (looks like). Can someone help identify what for?

Was trying to get my seatbelt light working (yes i am bored while lady cooking lol)

And traced it to this fuse box, at least the colors of the wire match. Anyone know what these are for?

Do you mean that black fuse panel, which is the interior receiving end of the bulkhead on the firewall, or the smaller white plastic assembly underneath?

Sorry for not specifying. The small white panel.

Is this aux power or a fuse box?

Looks like something a previous owner probably added to put more fuses in the fuse block, probably for aux lighting or something. Pretty smart--I was thinking about something like this today.

No problem! Check for voltage and then consider it a blank canvas!

The wtite connector is were the buzzer plugs into, and likely why your seat belt light dosn't work. It is a small black box that has about 5 flat prongs on it. Alot of people remove them to stay sane.

LOL too funny! Well that explains why the seatbelt wire went in it ... I didn't know if it was just the same color wire but i guess i wasn't dreaming it up.

Thanks man!

Played around with it some this morning. I think i can rig up something to remind me about the belt. I'm really bad about it and thelight will help. The circuits work just fine even the belt buckle switch. I'm a crappy electrician but seems like if i can get something similar to an OR gate to hook up to the ign and the belt pins that gives me hot wire if the ground from the switch is good i can plug that in directly into the lamp wire and it will work. Saw the buckle light for the first time today lol

I think i just found what i need!


Apprently it is called a relay .. Told you i was a crappy electrician lol

And this is how you hook things up apparently: http://www.the12volt.com/relays/page1.asp

So the plan is to use the negative signal from the belt to trigger the 12v on the lamp. The 12 fused signal will come from the ignition pin heck i can prolly add a mild buzzer to that too lol

Time for a trip to radio shack.

I like the idea of pulling switched power off of it! Mine was gone as well when I purchased the YJ long ago.
