Re: What is this?

To show that an aftermarket alarm system is armed?

Ha! I thought that, but.....no. Factory wiring to it. No aftermarket alarm system.

Re: What is this?

IIRC my friends 91 RS had the same light, but couldn't figure it out either. Now I think his was just burned out and it's supposed to be for the heater/radio controls and ashtray.

Re: What is this?

I believe even on the 91 trans am I have a random illumination light over my ashtray area when the interior lights are on.

Re: What is this?

Yes, just a very low power, soft light for the HVAC, radio and ashtray area. If it's working, you can put your hand in the area at night and see it at work. Very subtle though, so it's not a distraction.
