    While noseing through the wiring under my dash i pulled out a yellow box of some kind with a few wires hooked to it under the front of the console. What does this thing do? Is this a computer of some kind? I don't run off a computer so would i still need this or is it to something i don't know of? I can prolly get a picture of it if necessary.

    Hope someone has an idea of what it is.

    Could be a door chime/buzzer or the seat belt reminder, does it have a couple little open dashes on one side kinda like this

    or this

    If so then it is probably a door chime or seat belt buzzer.

  3. If it was an 81 I'd say it's the computer, but your profile says it's a 79, so I don't know, I don't think even California 79s had computers, I think 80 was the first year.

    the computer for the 81 was behind the console toward the firewall/ If it was under your dash its was probably a chime or something
     
  5. I guess I misunderstood, the title said console, while the post said dash.
