    Light on passenger door speaker

    I never drive at night (hardly drive it at all), but I noticed when I do turn on the lights, there is a light on the passenger side door behind the speaker grill. None on the driver side. Is that supposed to be there? (just seems kind of weird). Don't really care that much, but thought it a strange place for a light. (the lower curiosity light works and is there).

    The bulb came loose from the door panel. Remove the door panel and put it back into the holder. This is the illumination for the vent control.

    Ahhhh. Thanks. Again, never really drive at night, so never notice the vent controls on or off. For now, I may just leave it there. My drivers side window had a clunk every once and while when rolling it down, so will pull both door panels eventually. All my motorized stuff is giving me issues at the same time. My lawn tractor blew the charging system, my durango has fuel line issues, my lexus seems to have sporadic electrical things going on, and my saab leaks.

    Don't worry about SAAB leakage, I'm told that's normal!

    That is true! I keep a plastic sheet over it at all times. (It's a 1993 900s vert. It was one of my favorites when it first came out, so I am actually very happy to have it. Was lucky enough to get it for free for someone that won it in a lawsuit. As far as I can tell, all original with 33k on it. The only downside, no turbo).

    If I can get my lawn tractor running, I could drive to the store to get a new bike!
