No parts required.

Image 1/2: If all good, check circuit breakers located under dash on drivers side. Image 2/2: Circuit breakers labeled: (Power) 30A and (Automatic Shoulder Belt) 30A may be tripped. This is a simple fix. Just by sticking a toothpick or needle in hole located on circuit breaker (see 2nd photo). If it clicks, it may have been tripped and you journey may end here, if not then continue.
  • First, check fuses and see if any are out. At times other fuses and issues trip more issues.

  • If all good, check circuit breakers located under dash on drivers side.

It does click - so what next - is it now ok?

The other relX nex to it does not click. Does this mean it is fine.

Muzt I replave the clickind or the non clickinv?

The relay will click as often as I prod it.bThe relay next to it is solid. So which is OK ?

What is my next step ?

Well ! Opened the relay and found that it consists of a metal strip connecting two contacts. Plainly when there an over current the strip bends and slips past a retaimg pin. A coil spring under the plastic spring-carrier moves the spring away from the contacts.

I reset the unit and replced the metal (clip-on), cover. I recon l'll replace the rear red fog bulb with a lower Wattage - the relay in my case protects that circuit.

Man ! do I wish I still had one of my cars from the sixties which had non of the modern nonsense.

Image 1/2: Due to age and wear, you may have a tear (mix-tape dropping soon). OR like mine, many torn wires. Image 2/2: Here you need to remove the rubber cover and may need to push wires through kick panel to work on/check wires.
  • If you were like me, it was not as simple as a fuse or breaker. You may need to check your wires coming from the switches on the door, specifically in the door jam.
