I took my gran coupe all apart and as I put it all back together I have re-used the overhead console wiring. I didn't see any wiring for the seat belts to trigger the warning light. I wonder if I can get a little harness add on or?? how do I get the light to go off once I get going in the car. I would rather not just remove the bulb but I don't want to burn out the plastic letter panel.

The only year for the Gran Coupe was 70 , there was an option for the overhead console in 71.
I would have to study the wiring diagrams to see what triggers the warning light .

Seat belt warning light has a wire that follows the hump to underside of seat with a connector below the seat.

Used to have a photo of it - if I find it I will send.

I believe the seat switch is the same one that is used in 73 and 74 for the dash seat belt light.

No so, you’re thinking of the Challenger SE option, which was one year only, 1970, and was an “option” for 1971, known as a Formal Roof Package. Barracuda Gran Coupe - BP on the VIN was available in both 1970 and 1971, and was discontinued after 1971.

I’m adding an overhead console to my non gran coupe Barracuda. I have all the original wiring from one and it’s my understanding it’s tied in to the ignition timer warning buzzer. When you start the car the fasten seatbelt lights up and then goes off after a few seconds automatically. There are no wires to connect the console to the seat belts that I have.
