Okay, just saw the photos you posted ctubutis, my buzzer is a solitary GREEN buzzer underneath the dash of my truck near the glove box, and it's an '83.

I guess my truck only has a seat belt buzzer then. Mine's just an XL so that's liable to be all it came with. I'll look underneath some more tomorrow and see what I see.

The resources and information you and the others provide on this site is just... massive! o.O It seems like you have a picture of everything. Thank you for contributing so much.

Yeah, it seems that's a problem with them as they age.

I have a 1981 with the two solitary buzzers; the headlights-on functionality *used to* work but it seems to have stopped at some point recently.

Last time I was messing with this, my problem seemed to be bad contacts in the driver's door jamb switch. I cleaned everything up and it worked again for a while but no more.

Haven't tried thwapping the thing with my finger (same as slamming the door, my dash pad isn't on so it's easy to do the finger-thwap )yet to see if it'll spring to life.

If you pull yours out and open it up, you might be able to clean the contacts, or maybe bend 'em.

Be careful, though, the insides are pretty delicate:

the part numbers for the units im looking at are the following:

E4TZ-924-A and SW-1822 (black) I don't recognize either of those numbers This is a Motorcaft part number, this will work
E3EB10B924AA (white) Engineering ID Number, not a Part Number
E43B-10B924-AB (black that says it fits mustang/mercury 79-86)Also an Engineering ID Number
The Engineering ID Numbers that Ford inscribes on most of its parts are NOT replacement part numbers. They can maybe be used in eBay searches and the like but they're generally of limited use to a parts guy if you go into your local dealership.

That first one - E4TZ-924-A - I saw that on the eBay site, I'm thinking the seller is clueless.

Here is the Engineering ID Number from the black one:







Anyhoo.... The 1980/89 Light Truck Parts Catalog tells me:

For the black one:

E4TZ-10B924-A SWITCH ASSY. (SEAT BELT WARNING INDICATOR) Fits 1984/ (at least until 1989) F150/350 as well as vans, Broncos, Bronco II, etc. // Marked E43B 10B924-AA or -AB // Also used for headlamps on warning // Also used to service E3EB 10B924-AA and E9EB 10B924-AA

Our sponsor Ed Olson www.partsguyed.com can sell you a brand new one; MSRP $36.91 Ed's discount price for FTE members $24.36



I'm thinking those in the eBay ads would also work.

It seems there are some Ford dealers around the country that have them in stock, you might ask at a local dealership, too.

Thanks for your comments.

As far as your headlight-on buzzer goes, even if you don't have the physical buzzer, see if you have the connector for it.

IMHO it's easy to remove the dash pad, this gives you MUCH easier access to what's behind/underneath there.

The headlight-on buzzer has 3 contacts in a sort-of L shape, and the unit itself is marked E0TB-13150-AA on the back:

im mainly wanting the "hey idiot your lights/battery is/are on check them" buzzer, but I dont mind key in (but I hope i can ****** up the 7 pin one for all features), I do have the white one plugged in right now so its working but its just key in functionality (not sure if it does more tho)

Yeah, you can go to Rock Auto (for example) and buy a Motorcraft SW-1822, it's a different reference number for the same thing.

Look it up on Motorcraft's site.

Just in case another member comes across this thread wondering about the buzzers or glove box, here's a few pics of what I have.

My truck is a non-a/c truck, so it has a deeper glove box. However the a/c glove box still mounts the same. This picture show the glove box upside down. The little cutout section is where the latch and the glove box light assembly would contact the box. That cutout section is the top of the box. Also, you can see that one of my tabs are missing. This further demonstrates the previous point of the cardboard glove box being easily torn. I have circled each of the screw holes in red. As you can see, there are only 7 screws. Once you remove these, you can slide the glove box out, and get easy access to the buzzers above. I highly recommend removing the glove box before the dash pad, since a new glove box can be easily made out of new cardboard, or even thin sheet metal. A dash pad is not easily replaced, especially if you prefer a stock dash pad and not an aftermarket cover.





And here are my 1980-1982 buzzers to supplement the pics of the ones in Chris' truck.

Seat Belt/Ignition on




Headlight On buzzer which is included with the light group.

I found a plastic glove box in a yard, the cardboard ones are just WAY too fragile.

Most of the plastic ones I see are for A/C but I lucked out somehow and found a non-A/C variant.

Post your results when you get your parts and we can do that.

I wanna make sure everything we're talking about here WORKS AS DESCRIBED before we send some other lost soul on this route.

BTW your FB thing still doesn't work.

If I recall correctly, some time around 1985, Ford switched to plastic glove box liners. They still offered non-a/c trucks then, so that would explain why.
