i have been talkign to a few people lately and they say their GAs have footwell lights...like from the factory. can someone give me a "good" picture of where they are? i dont know if i just dont have them (i have a GT...so if anything it should have it) so both sides must be burnt out or something. thanks

heres like what i mean:

If you just stick your head under there with a flashlight you can definitely see them. I doubt you wouldn't have them but I could be wrong. Anyways just take a look-see brotha..even feeling around I can find mine.

ahahh that whole thing sounds funny

I believe only '99 and '00 models came with them. I know the driver's side one was somewhere near the hood release.

hmm GaOwner's 03 has em..... and i swear , iv looked down there with a flashlight a few times now and havent come up with anything....
is it even reasonable that they BOTH died on a car thats an 01' with 91 thou on it?

On my 99 I have one on my driver's and passenger side. Also the driver's side is by the hood release. I'll try to take pics tomorrow when it's daylight.

I dunno, that's kinda sh!tty though. They're awesome when you drop something or whatever.

Who knows, it's just like them taking the lock off the glove box, or not painting the mirrors, etc.

My 2000 has um and as a matter of fact I just installed White LED's in there last night... Easy as pie to swap in and way better then stock... After this lil swap I moved onto the license plate frame light.... Fit a little finky so I had to tape in the longer LED but its bright and clean looking...

Last but not least the dreaded domelight.. GM engineers were smoking something when they designed this piece... Once you remove the unit from the housing it wont go in without some grief... whew, Pita but it looks sweet!

Ps what is the size of the small bulb in the back of the domelight? It looks like a 194/168 but it seemed stuck to the small round plastic piece that skrews it into the socket...

What about the map lights on the front mirror? Are these the same as the domelight bulb??

:applause:

Map lights are 212-2s and I'm pretty sure the back dome lights are 194s. White LEDs ftw.:)

Eh...if I had em it would just highlight how badly I need to clean my carpet lol

I have a big ol' MagLight shoved between my seat and the center console, so I don't have any trouble finding anything :D
