There is a small red led down by the dash light dimmer, it has never been on that I have noticed and I have no idea what it is for. This is on a 97' GTS I'd look it up in the owners manual if I had one. Tom

If you roll the windows down with that light on it tells the world that you're open for business.



JK...no idea. Pic?

I don't think my '97 has that light. I am guessing that maybe it was for an alarm?

It the light is about 1/4 inch in diameter, it's an alarm LED. It may have a round, black plastic holder it snaps into.

I also found a small black box mounted under the rear fascha that says antenna, I wonder if it is some kind of lo-jack system or something like that.

Hmmm...that sounds pretty feasible. I don't think Lo-jack systems have any obvious "clues" like a red led (at least from what I've heard from other folks) but it could be just that or something else like it. Is it wired to the LED from what you can tell? Does it ever light up or blink?

Lojack installs don't include an LED.

I just opened the door, and the red light went away. /images/graemlins/supergrin.gif

Yup, that's what I thought.

A buddy of mine had lojack installed last year and they wouldn't even let him watch where they install the transmitter/receiver for security purposes (so the general public didn't know where they liked to place it on various cars I 'spose).
