Okay, new thought. Are you sure you have an actual alarm? My old GP didn't have an alarm, but it did have the security light. The only time I saw the light was when starting up the car or when the key was wet. The light actually worked with the chip in the key to tell you when something was up with that. It wasn't a security sytem in the classic sense, but it was a feature that prevented a different key than the one programmed for the car from being used...all of our Bonnies have that feature I believe.
Good thought! I was wondering, now you mentioned that, I don't have this black ball thingy in the middle of the dash by the windshield. Is that part of the security feature? If so, you are right Hailey.

My light comes on as soon as I open the door, at least I think it does. It goes on when I turn the car off and it blinks until I lock the door. It'* the "theft warning system" according to the manual. You should have a sticker on the window that says it has it.

No that black ball thing is the outside temperature sensor.

I don't like the computer climate controls personally. Might not look as nifty, but the old ones didn't look that nice imho. Can't control it as well, and it'* a lot more complicated then it needs to be.

I agree to a certain extent, The earlier models with the auto switch was a pain. The later models have the mode buttons to choose were you want to blow the air manually. I think they did that in 95. I like them.
