leave your foglights turned off unless it'* night time. Your interior dash lights are on all the time with those fogs on.. That'* why they're burning out so fast! The 92-99 Bonnevilles had the foglights on only with the headlights. The 00+ will have the fogs on all the time with the ignition instead... it'* a bad design in my oppinion.

If the led fits and you decided to try it. You'd need...ummm a 180 ohm resistor I think in line to drop for the led.

I was just thinking a little earlier today how dumb that design is. That really doesn't make any sense at all.
BTW...I also have a bulb burned out on the left side of the radio'* display.

I have a 2000 and I already have the new bulbs from Corvette radio. But what I need to know is if I need to lock or unlock the radio before I remove it from the car to replace the bulbs. If there is a posting on this procedure please point me in the right direction. I think 2000 is different then the 99 and older Bonnevilles

you will be fine to remove teh radio. The theftlock on the 2000+ models works by comparing the vin # stored in the radio with the VIN number in the computer. As long as those two numbers match the radio will work.
