Nope, you can unplug it with no other consequences. Ummm, except if you have one of those odd-ball 76es with the "74-only" seatbelt interlock relay. (At least one person with a 76 cars tells me he has one!) And then only if the buzzer is a part of the seatbelt relay. I've never seen a car where that was actually the case (I've only checked 3 or 4 cars) but it's all one block in the wiring diagram.

In that case, you want to get rid of the interlock relay anyway. Splice the two thick yellow (or one thick yellow and one thick yellow-with-red-stripe) wires together and throw the relay away. Do a nice watertight job (shrink tubing and all) and you'll never have to worry about *that* part of the starter circuit.

I have a 74 and the previous owner cut the sensors's wires; which if you pull out the bottom insert of you seat you'll notice a long oval rod which is inserted on top of the foam( look for the curly wires ) Thats all he did and no more BUZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ
Good luck

If the 76 is anything like my 75, all you have to do is unplug the wire that comes out of the seat bottom cushion. Once that is unplugged, the buzzer will never know that you are sitting in your seat, so it won't buzz. And - it does not require any wire splicing.
