    Exhaust questions for a stock-ish ‘87 GN

    Shutting off the EGR in the chip or by plugging the hole in the head is just as illegal as a hollow cat. o_O :p I hear all the new replacement cat.s. for our cars are the see-through versions now.... ;)

    Idiot Light Troubleshooting Help?

    Could easily still be the connectors into the back of the dash as well, I'd start there first if you pull the dash out or can get some fingers behind there after removing the lower panel and A/C vent.

    Idiot Light Troubleshooting Help?

    The Gages fuse powers the brake indicator and a lot of the other lamps so it's most likely a connection issue at the printed circuit, or in the connectors that plug into the digital dash itself, I would re-seat those connectors. The gages fuse also powers the oil, volts, and water temp. lamps...

    oil feed side of block

    The O.E. switch will get power to your fuel pump or hot wire relay once the car produces 4psi. oil pressure when cranking. So if there's an issue with the stock relay or ECM fuel pump prime circuit you won't be left dead trying to start or drive the car. It also runs the idiot light which...

    Grand National Original Floor Mats

    Well I guess that proves if you have no codes the mats were added by..... ;) Back to the OP's original question requesting what they looked like, would be nice to see the B32 next to a B34 and B33 next to a B35. Since they were optional would be nice to see them as listed out on a window...

    Grand National Original Floor Mats

    Here's a pic. of an RPO Code from a decently optioned 1987 GN and no mat codes. Easy to post up with a little Paint mod. if you don't need to show your VIN number in full. Car was painted and the sticker re-applied in the wrong direction but it's original to the car. Mats were easy to come...

    Grand National Original Floor Mats

    Bummer, I've seen the codes listed on 1986 stickers and optional pricing charges on window stickers from that year but can't find any of the four codes on a 1987 sticker. My car doesn't list the codes on the sticker but I bought it used so I can't tell if it came with any mats from the...
