If you take a look under most 92-93 Bonnevilles (dont know about newer years) the rear end has MORE than enough room to have rear steering. Pontiac was testing and designing a 4 wheel steering system for our cars, but they failed on many attemps, they made a insturment cluster with the dummy light incase.
There yah have it, it baffled me the first time i saw it on Bill'* car too.

if you know what to look for, you can see that they had the design in the works

I also noticed, on the DIC there is a light on the screen itself above the Low Oil Level light that says Change Oil Soon
Does anyone with a 92-93 SSEi actually have this option that works?! It never worked in my old Bonneville either, nor did it illuminate with the other lights at key on.

rear steer would help on these cars, the turning radius is horrible

Yeah, i think my Alero has the same thing as well. I wouldnt know though, that car has sat in the garage since January 7th lol

4 wheel steer would rule on these cars, i HATE parking it sometimes, or trying to get out of a parking spot. But its all good, havent hit anything yet lol
