Yes, I tend to call it the seatbelt warning relay.  Why not yank the
dumb chime and just plug a spade into the right socket?  I ran my "start
to stop" for my express windows modules from "key in" to "door open"
using two terminals from that socket.

If you like the chime, build a little breakout box for it (old relay
base, 1/2 to 1" wires, relay socket) and tap into the appropriate
lines.  Or...
