Help Needed- Electrical ID, Grand Wagoneer

All,

Can anyone tell me what the small blue box located under the fuse box of a 1989 Grand Wagoneer is called and what it does? Also, I took a picture of it, but can't figure out how to post it, if anyone can tell me how to post, I'd be much obliged.

Thanks!

It's the chime box...makes all the alarm sounds - key in ignition, door open, lights on, etc.

Mystery solved- thanks for your help!

There is an unconnected wire in the mess of wires below the steering wheel that I want help identifying. I took a picture of it but can't figure out how to post the photo. Can anyone tell me how to add it?

Thanks.

You can remove it and the sounds will stop. It could be the problem, but more likely is the switch inside the steering column has gone bad - stuck closed.

It's not a huge job. Remove steering wheel. Tear it on down to ignition switch. The ignition alarm switch is there...if I remember right.

This is a GM steering column, so just Google "GM steering column rebuild". That's what I did when I bought my Jeep. Had to take it down to the tilt knuckle to tighten the bolts back up.

You can get a new one at Team Wagoneer: Steering Column Key Buzzer NOS GW 1979-1991.

Let me know if you need any more help.

I just replaced the cylinder ignition lock on mine so I was just in there. You need a steering wheel puller kit, more for the pressure plate than the actual wheel. Used the loaner tool at pep boys.
