Nope. But then again, without the button, it'* obviously either a dealer add or something else. Odd things happen with fleet vehicles. I do have option package 1SA, but nobody seems to know what that is.

According to some information I just recieved:

Lets remember what RPO stands for

Regular Production Options

And being that your car was a Fleet car... It may have every option in the book... GM most likely gave them the best of the best being that the former owner worked for GM
So RPO'* are a general guide, but obviously in the case of BOTH of my cars (both having options they shouldn't have), you can throw the book away at times.

Thats true... The RPO'* don't always tell the truth... Being that this car is an SSEi it has a base set of options...

It seems in earlier years there were more options listed on the code sticker... 86 was the first year for the RPO sticker, I think they used it earlier, but it became something that every GM car had in 86... In later years there seems to be fewer codes listed...

A long time ago when Dame had his 87SE he sent me his RPO list.... I almost had a cow when I saw how long that list was

Hrm... Will, what are the differences in the windshields? Is it noticable? I would like to check my cars to see if they have it even though there is no switch. And as far as my 93 SSE SC, it had MORE options than my 93 SSEi... it had the CD player. Otherwise they are exactly the same. Unfortunately, no Build sheet in the SSE SC.

I like the idea of the heated windshield. I might have to watch out for this option. You say it was C50 for RPO codes?

Even if the fuse is installed, it'* hard to tell, or nearly impossible. I saw the old windshield come out, and the new one go in. The wires are on the INSIDE, so it'* not visible until you pull the WS. You could put an ammeter in series with the fuse, and play with your ECC. Either front or rear defrost should make it activate if you have it.

I've never verified function in an electrical sense, as I commonly took the option for granted. I know if I turn on both the front and rear defrost, I've got enough heated up in the glass to shove off a 1/2" thick dam of ice in about 60 seconds, in actually a bit less time than the mirrors maybe. It'* been a couple years since we've had an ice storm like that.

I can get thawed/defogged and out of the parking lot LONG before any of my co-workers in the winter. I never scrape.
