Hi, Well, officially its been one year since I've owned my 1988 Saab 16v Turbo SPG. Happens to coincide with the time I've lurked on the list, mostly reading and saving the occasional hints and tips. However.... About a month ago, I was replacing the speakers in the front dash, and for reasons I can't remember at the moment, got tired of listening to the seatbelt buzzer. I remember lifting the seat and unhooking a module, I believe, and the buzzing stopped. After I was done installing the new speakers (they sound great!), I decided to leave the module/buzzer disconnected. (I _always_ wear my belt anyway.) Well, I didn't drive the car for a while but last week I noticed that the electric door locks, which used to lock the passenger side door and the rear hatch when locking the drivers door on exit, no longer works. The overhead light, which used to stay on for 30 seconds or so, again upon exiting the car, also does not work. (It does work with the switch, but only on/off, no delayed time.) I reconnected the buzzer, but still nothing. Did I disconnect something else by mistake and can't find it, or is this something that needs to be 'rebooted' or 'reset' or re-actived' or 're-' something? Gaaaaa!!!! I have the both manuals but I'm not that good at trying to figure out how the wires go, but I can see the wires under the rear seat just fine! Can anyone point me as to what to look for? Thanks in advance, Brandon
