That has happened here already. My 95 also has the same problem. I need a new module one of these days. It was that way when I bought it. Had another recently too. It'* not just the 95'*. It'* ANY year that the module is under the RF seat.

Moving to General Chat.

It can happen to any Bonneville with the airbag module under the front passenger seat if you get a leak from any of the following locations:

1. Sunroof/drains/tubes.
2. Shrinking door seals on the passenger door(*).
3. Leaking rear window.
4. Leaking antenna seal.

So, how can I know if mine is there? I mean, obviously I can look, but I wouldn't know what to look for.

That is just plain scary. When I first got the car 18 months ago I had a major leak from the trunk. As I would drive the water would just flow into the front floors. I fixed that, antenna and mostly both rear light lens were not secure as the bolts had corroded. Then had that leak from the "gutters" on the roof leaking into the back seats. All has been fixed but this scares me.

Is it located there in the 93? Owners before me said the AC drain thingy got plugged up and leaked into the passenger floorboards for a whole summer and there was continuously 1 or 2 inches of water in the floor.

Only reason I had gotten this for the 95'* is because I had this set up for about 3 yrs now, and totally forgot I had it until last night lol.

It'll only bring back 95 specifically because that'* what I had it under.
