Default Perimeter Lighting

I was wondering why the late 90'* Buick LeSabres had it and the Bonny didnt get it? And do you think to turn it on would be the same as turning it on in the LeSabre? I love the TrailBlazer because it has it and leaving work at 11 in an unlit parking lot, its nice. I wish there was a way for the Bonnies to have it without any mods or tools. I know someone has it on their 97 but I cant remember who.

Yes thats him! No perimeter lighting is where the headlights and back up lights come on when you unlock the doors. Some just have the headlights but both are more common. It helps with the TrailBlazer because you then can see anything and everything. Once my friend tried hiding behind the TrailBlazer after a football game and when I unlocked the doors I scared the *@#$ out of him. He drives a ford and his family is ford lovers so he doesnt know what luxaries are. Later he asked where the aftermarket alarm system was from and I laughed. I was like its all stock and he looked at me and said liar no it isnt then I had to prove it.

I borrowed a Tech 2 and was poking around in the body module. Wasn't even sure what it was when I enabled it.

It turns on the exterior lighting for the amount of time set by the twilight sentintel (I think thats where it gets the time) and leaves them on instead of merely the factory set flash when unlocking.

My 99 would do that. But I never messed with any settings to get it to do that, guess someone else must have before I owned her.
