what is this part?

Hey guys, its been awhile since I've posted. I've been busy replacing my under dash wiring harness along with the head light wiring harness due to a total melt down from the battery side of the starter solenoid all the way to the ignition switch. i am still not sure what happened or why, but I have installed a fusible link on that wire just to be sure.

BTW...I bought the Alloy Metals product for both harnesses and i was very pleased with the end result. Wow, they were really easy to install and there was no crimping or cutting. I recommend the Alloy Metals wiring harness products highly.

my question today is this. there is a small silver electrical deivce with two flat male connectors on the end of it and i dont know what it is. this thing is about the size of an M-80 fire cracker and silver and is mounted just above the Z plate that my fog light circuit breaker is mounted to, and my Z plate is mounted above the wiper motor. i have a 67 factory GT. I have tried to upload a pic although it may be a little blurry.

thanks,
Tim

What a temptation to say "flourescent starter for the circline dome light option".

Thanks Bart,

I'm guessing it's the original emergency flasher and someone decided just to plug a new one into the harness instead of going to the trouble of removing this one.

Bart, that sounds reasonble, because i dont have any left over connectors to plug on to it. That is one far out of reach place for Ford to put a flasher relay, but like I said it is just above the fog light circuit breaker.....
thanks,

Though it is not rectangular like the factory unit I am familiar with, the spades are consistent with the connector for the timer that feeds the "Seat Belt" light that is part of the deluxe seat belt option and the convenience light panel. Does your car have either of those options? If not, what other options did it originally come with?

Jeff, yes i think you are correct. i went to the shop today and found the sub harness that plugs onto the device and the seat light was on the other end of the that harness. i don't have my marti report in front me but I guess I have the seat option you referred to.
How does that work anyway? as soon as i plugged it onto the seat belt relay, the seat belt light came on? when should the light come on?
oh btw Jeff, I love your car and color. i had thought about with a similar exterior paint color like a deep burgundy for mine when i painted it...that car is freakin beautiful!.... and I like your ride height too. mine sits a little higher.
thanks,
Tim

Thanks for the compliments.

To your question, the seat belt reminder light comes on when the key is first switched "on" and it stays on for 10 seconds or so, after which it goes off. It operates on the principal of electricity going through a relay heating up the contacts to the point that they expand, breaking the circuit and cutting the power until the next time it is switched on. Hope that makes sense.

Tim, w/ 67 Mustang GT
I see you posted some time ago about using Alloy Metals wiring harness successfully. I have a 67 Mustang FB GT. I want to upgrade wiring harness for alternator (internally regulated voltage) and upgrade to HEI (coil internal ) distributor. Can you comment about Alloy Metals
wiring harnesses for these upgrades? Or, other wiring harness sources for this?
