Thanks for all the input last time, she is back up and running. But now I have a new problem. Every time I step on the brakes, or turn my turn signals on, the hatch lid open idiot light comes on. and the tail lights don't. the stereo, and seatbelts also stopped working. I checked all the fuses, they are good. and the Seatbelt relay, just sits there and clicks, every time you open or close a door. Any suggestions?? Please Help!

I just gave up on the auto sholder belts.

I manually rolled them back & pulled the control box connector behind the glove box.

I leave them latched & just pull it over my head when getting in.

About the warning light panel: There is a typical problem with the solder joints where connectors join circuit boards. Resoldering the joints usually fixes many electrical problems.

no guys. I know we have these typical problems with our cars individually, but all of these problems with this car started all at once and with a single issue. A few months ago Stock7's car stopped running altogheter. Replaced the alternator and still nothing. He then put it in the shop and was getting no spark or anything at the coils. Turned out it was the ECU and they replaced it and it ran just fine - for five minutes. So after searching they found that the main wire underneath the dash - the big one - had broken and wasnt properly connected and thats why sometimes there was some spark. Well they fixed this and put the old ECU back in and now all of the problems have started. His signals and tails dont work, the idiot gauge is constantly on and the seatbelts dont work. His stereo deck doesnt work and is constantly ground looping as well as his alarm is now fried. I think there is a relay or something of some sort that has cause all of this or maybe something on the ECU but in no way aer these problems random so if Icemark or some electrical guru could help that would be great because Ill be looking at this car over the weekend. thanx guys
