well i had my mechanic look at the wires and he said they were fine. he thinks its the cluster iteself. i ahve no way to check cuz i know nothing about the cars electronics. also for some reason my left blinker light has worked once and my high beam light never works im not sure if the seatbelt icon should go on either, the 89 le does...why wont mine.

Oh well, my bro probably wont be repairing his bonnie (89 LE being retired at 207k) so i hope i can swap the cluster easily. ill get a number for ya when the car gets towed home.

BTW what would u guys think if u saw a Bonnie rolling dow the road with 2 dark blue fenders and bumper, red everything else, and a white spoiler. my dad says it would look patriotic (as he laughs) not sure if im going to swap them yet cuz im far away from painting the beast.

You could keep everyone guessing by swapping body parts weekly.

What if I wanted to get an SSE cluster and swap it into an LE model

BTW: I don't have to go to work to read some P/N'*. I've got a GM Parts Catalog for 1987 - 93 Pontiac "H" Bodies at home remember!
I don't list that P/N: 25088895 for any year between 1987 - 1991! Are you sure on that P/N?
