The pic I put up does not show the key in ig. buzzer, is it mounted to the col?

no its kinda the same way the seatbelt buzzer is, just hangs, a small piece of tape holds the wiring together for the two so they hang in the same spots.....

Now i gotta drop the hush panel, just curious, weird it doesn't show the buzzer in the manual. mine wont buzz, you have to press in on the key, something's off. Years ago i thought i pulled it when i yanked the seat belt buzzer, but it's there.

Either that (the contacts do wear over time) or a worn key and/or lock cylinder. My 80 had a really really worn copied key when I got it (so far gone that you couldn't decipher the original biting) and also needed the key pushed on before it would buzz. Replaced the lock cylinder and mine buzzes as it should now (never replaced the column contacts)...and yes, annoys people if the keys are in and door is open. Got to love loud old buzzers!

I have a "new" GM seatbelt buzzer thats, what I would say, a normal volume. I had a really faint key buzzer in the car, but it lacked the stereotypical "BZZZZZZZZZZZZZ" associated w/old cars so I acquired another and, well, it is loud. LOL. Probably the loudest original buzzer I've ever heard.

EDIT: An interesting tidbit...the 69 and early 70s GM cars (at least many of them) had the key buzzer under the hood (it also was combined with the horn relay I believe). Talk about an interesting noise...hearing a buzz from under the hood! First heard that on a friend's 1969 GTO.

Neither of mine work. Neither to the dummy lights  ??? Something I'll have to toy with someday I guess.

Just got my ebrake light to work was just a bulb blown and my high speed fan works now just a dirty contact,great when you get these little electrical things to work again ;D just waiting on my buzzers now so i've got something to shout at "SHUT UP" ;D.Just another question,would not having the seat belt buzzer in stop the seat belt light from working,the bulb was ok for that.

I like the key buzzer. It's kept me from locking the keys in the car a few times.

My seat belt buzzer had not worked since I bought the car 9 years ago, which was fine with me. Then a couple weeks ago, it just decided to start working. THAT was annoying  :) .

Perfect timing for this thread! I just got a parts car that had both the ignition buzzer and the seatbelt buzzer!! I hooked them up to my 80 and like others have said the key warning buzzer is finicky but the seatbelt buzzer works pretty good. HOWEVER the "fasten seatbelt" light went on and does no go off when I buckle the belt even though the buzzer stops. Any idea why that would be and how to fix?

I can't remember when the buzzer was out of my car what the light did, the buzzer has a timer in it, maybe a bad buzzer?
