Default what comes on with ACC?

When I turn the key to accessory only the radio comes on. Shouldnt I be able to put the windows down or up with the key on accessory? If not, how difficult would it be to wire the windows to an accessory line int he fuse panel?

Does the 87-91 line of bonnevilles even have a retained accessory module? I'm thinking it doesn't... You should have to turn on the ignition... I think 92 was the first year for the Retained Acessory in the bonnevilles..

Everything works when the car is running or is in the ON position. My power seats, mirros, and locks all work when the car is off (don't need the key) , but my stereo is the only thing that comes on when in accessory. My dads '92 Silverado and our '97 Astro allow you to control the windows and stereo when the key is on accessory. Whats a Retained accessory module?

Sorry to burst your bubble, but you don't have ACC. It could be you got a new Ignition Cylinder, and it was for the wrong car, which came with ACC and a new starter switch, which had ACC.. and who knows what only got hooked up and such. That seems to be the only logical explaination.

Just about every bonneville 87-99 and 00-current have an ACC position... In the older Bonneville 87-91 this was for the stereo alone( Don't ask )...

In the 92-99 Bonnies, and many GM products with power options, you will have a retained accessory module, that will keep the power flowing to the windows and stereo for 10 minuts after the key is removed from the ignition, The retaind accessory will also shut off the power items once a door is opened( in that 10 minute timeframe )...

My 95 Bonneville has that as well as my friends 92 Park Avenue...

The 87-91 Bonneville does not have this option..

Uhh.. where is this magical ACC position you speak of? None of my friends' Bonnevilles have it [pre-92 of course]. There is a space between LOCK and ON, where the engine shuts off, but all the accessories work.. but I don't consider that ACC..

Uh, put the key in the ignition, and turn it backwards, opposite direction of Ignition on/start.. Both of my bonnevilles have this... All of my friends with any type of GM car has this...

I have seen some without this feature( Not on a Bonneville tho ) But the 1 or 2 that I have seen without the ACC feature were the bare bones cars... As in not 1 single option...

Same deal here. Only the radio and power seats work in ACC, which is ok. Put the key in, push in key in, and turn towards yourself. Then start listening to the tunes without anything else coming on.
