Wire's from driver side seat belt area

(83-Chevy Silverado)I was trying to wire my amp today and discovered 2 wires coming from my driver side seat belt. I haven't been able to see exactly where they start or end...1 is black with a white stripe and goes to the fuse block, the other has an orange and white wire running side by side, which goes toward the glove box..I can't find them on the diagram I have..anyone know what these wires go to?

Seat Belt Light. You May Not Notice It If You Don't Buckle Up Cause It Will Go Out After 1.5 Min.

The orange and white wires are usually for the courtesy lamps. It probably runs up into a junction in the cab corner behind the driver. At that junction it branches out to the bed light and switch.

Thx for the replies, I confirmed the white black wire goes to a connector by the seat belt and the orange and white wires are for the dome light.

orange hot all times

ground is the white wire, but it is only grounded when a door switch is extended(door opened)or when thr headlight switch knob is rotated all the way til it clicks,
then it grounds this white wire

to make the dome light light up

seat belt wires almost always black or close to it

they are probably ground circuit wires.

not positive on that
