They are green.. or are we talking about the button backlighting? Those are red.

1993SLE: ah yes, I am lucky, however not a man .. just an immature boy, with a pretty Bonneville . Stuff in the 80s was better made than in the 90s, that'* partially why I haven't had any problems, while more current Bonneville'* have. That, and my car breaks everything else, and probably forgot about the heating/cooling.

From about 1973 until the late 80'* GM used a plastic that disintegrates, cars of that period are going to impossible to restore. Apparently thay used the same plastic in just about all retractable headlamps which makes rebuilding them a popular pastime.

CLimate control is a PITA because I like to have full heat from the front vents in the winter, yes Ill admit that its cool to have and tell people that youvre got climate control, but honestly I would throw it in the garbage for the option fr standard *****. Was there even a regular heater option for these cars? Damn us and our top of the line automobiles!! :P

Think I would prefer bilevel (both dash vents and floor). Can do anything you want with proper rearrangement of the vaccuum lines to the programmer.

I get mine to blow straight in my face. I forgot how.. but I got it to. I don't have a battery in my car, so I can't try.. so anyone with an 87-91 CC should screw with it. I know it'* possible. I promise.

Whats up guys, I realize this is an old trend, I got ? pertaining to ecc conversion. I have a 1987 Trans Am GTA it has the rare digital dash and "electronic but not automatic climate control" Witch is really disappointing for a luxury car guy. Just recently the head unit stopped working all together. I once saw a SSE climate conversion on a older late 70'* Catalina on cardomain it gave me the idea but I can't find the page. 1st ?: Is a BCM required to use this system, (the GTA'* got a DIC but no BCM) 2. Which system is better the 87-91 or 92-96 I noted the control heads are different, Are the features? Thanks for any help! I will look for newer trends!
