Default ALM Interchanges

Hey guys! I have a question on the interchange of the ALM for the SSE/i Bonnies!

Here'* the skinny:

I have an ALM from a 92 or so Bonneville SSE.. I (Hope) to be getting a complete cluster from a 94 Bonneville (Worst case- if possible, I would like to get one from a 96+ so I KNOW it will work with OBD2)

The biggest question is whether the ALM will interchange up to the 98 or so Bonnies! Thanks guys!

ALM would usually be the Adaptive Lamp Monitor which is technically a box behind the dash that monitors exterior lights and tells the cluster inputs which lights to illuminate.

The cluster itself in certain sections are interchangeable between years. However there will be certain snags. For example the fuel gauge. Different resistances were used at different points when fuel senders were updated/changed.

The ALM monitors the OUTSIDE lights, not the dash or cluster. On SSE trim levels and above only.
