James - I have been toying with the idea of getting an S600 - one on ebay
now looks pretty good, but I am not ready to make the jump.   What is the
problem with the wiring?  I thought pre '94's should be ok.
For all those who offered help with the erratic blinker: It is still an
occasional problem, but playing with it [flashers, blinkers, stalk] usually
stops it.  Never had the panel off where the flasher switch is located, and
I don't think I am getting contact cleaner where it needs to go.  Is there a
simple way to get access to that switch?

Some cars (W140s for sure) got the biodegradable wiring (and all of the wiring problem associated with that) in 1992 while others (like the 124 diesel) didn't have until 1995. Just depends on on the particular chassis AND engine.

Usually switching the Hazard switch on and off about 100 times will clean it or break so it requires replacement to restore reliable function. Have you tried cleaning (or buckling/unbucking about 50 times) the seat belt buckle switch? When it gets dirty in early '80s cars - the buzzer may sound.
