Mystery electical part...

I'm going thru the under dash and center console wiring to get everything working, lights & buzzers, etc...

I can not identify the little black box to the left of the fuse panel

Here's a camera phone pic to help.

Looks like the second fuse block that holds the fuse for the fuel supply pump. What year is the car? There should be a cover just like the small one for the large fuse block.

Ah... you're probably right! I shouldn't start working on the car at midnight.

OK, Bonus question...

Are there in fact two separate buzzers (seatbelt & key) and where are they located?

Usually there are two seperate buzzers, and they're generally located on the right side of the plate that's the steering column support.

Little gray plastic boxes with two little gauge wires going to them.

Roughly 1" x 1 1/2" x 2"

I know there's a pic around here someplace, but can't put my finger on it right now.

OK, ok.... I think I found something like that mounted on top of the steering column.

A pic would be fantastic.
