Default 1991 SSE - just bought need help with a couple things

Just picked up a 1991 SSE for pretty cheap, $750.00 Canadian, however it does have a few issues I was hoping you guys could help me out with:

1. The front and interior lights came on while driving without me turning them on, then I had problems turning them off?

2. CD player doesn't work, can you replace it with an aftermarket system and still have use on the steering wheel controls, are there any other models made by delco?, that will work and still allow full steering wheel function.

3. Can't seems to find many of these cars out there and no parts for the car (used anyway), need some cosmetic items, can you point me in the right direction.
Cheers

Heres the car below.

Heres the car below.
1. a door sensor is probably bad or shorting out, its $3 a piece at autozone out here should be similar there

2 it can be replaced but i wouldnt reccomend it, theres a steering wheel control interface that can be bought for it, i believe harofreak00 is selling one, also if u get rid of the factory unit the factory amp/gain control will no longer work.

3. the best bet for parts on these cars is the junkyard. gmpartsdirect.com and rockauto.com has alot of parts for them too

and i LOVE THAT COLOR, gimme ur car!

twilight sentinel is basically automatic headlights, with the switch in the on areas the lights will turn on when it gets dark out, the switch setting itself controls how long the lights stay on after the car is turned off so u can get out and see where you are going during the night.

Hey there, Love the Blue Bonneville SSE'* always one of my fav color'* on them, well besides white of course!

How well does the radio controls work afterwards? Does all the buttons still work right? hard to install? The cassette died in mine and just having the radio, well you get the picture was bad with just a tape, now just radio (UGHHHHHH)


Thanks

Donnie H.

I need an antenae, door gaurd for drivers side passenger, plastic housing were rear plate is broken somewhat and should be replaced, and the clear lenses of the rear lights have been broken and removed (didn't notice that for a week
The seat controller seat switch seems to not work but I havent checked to see if its a fuse, however the seat controller switch (driver/passenger) seems to be seized.
Cheers

Roy.. and others.. the PAC swi is a fairly easy and straight forward install. They work great with steering controls.

On that seized control switch..try a little contact cleaner gently sprayed into it...
