Gremlins are nasty little things aren't they.
Anyway, I finally pulled that light out of the passenger side. I think the wires are 20 gauge though, not 16 like expected. The 16 gauge wire stripper just chewed on em, 18 didn't do much more.
I just gotta get a replacement now, Pontiac wants $91 for a new grab handle. :( But hey, I can now run the defroster, headlights, AND a blinker at the same time. Thanks for all the help guys, this trully is a great board with awesome members. FYI, I hated my Bonneville when I bought it. I was forced into it and couldn't wait to sell it and run with the money. Thanks for changing my views.
