Seat belt wire cut

2008 6.0 E-450 cutaway chassis has a wire along side of the seat belt connector that has been cut. What does this effect? Why would someone want it cut?

Does your seatbelt light or chime come on when you do not have the seatbelt buckled? If not then thats would be what it effects... the chime and the light of the seatblet reminder?

On older vehicles it just turns off the seatbelt light and ringer. On newer vehicles it also tells the airbag it's okay to do its job when needed.
If the seat belt is not used you would hit the steering wheel and then the airbag would go off and then fly back into the seat causing even more injury... This way the air bag is used when the seat belt is in use... FYI

Thank you both for your response. I contacted a couple of personal contacts to conclude that it affects the light and chime as well as the airbag sensor and the seat lock down device during a crash.

Whoever did this apparently thought it was only the light and chime but, have taken other people that drive these vehicles to a grave safety risk.
