  1. I have found a company that makes replacement automotive stickers, I'm looking into cost. Good luck, Jim Wood
  2. Here at the shop I use ACDelco 10-108 Cooling System Sealing Tabs. GM called for them any time you opened a Cadillac cooling system. You can get them at any GM or AC Delco dealer. I haven't seen any problems with them and have been using them for 20-30 years. https://www.amazon.com/ACDelco-10-108/dp/B0026JK8C8 Good luck, Jim Wood
  3. They make a glue for rubber or silicone o-rings. You cut the o-ring material to length and glue it. It may work on the rings. Google (o-ring adhesive). Good luck, Jim Wood
  4. Color TV monitor for the rear passengers, may have only been available in the SC version, I'm not sure. My 1987 Coupe is wired for it, so it may have been standard wiring. Other options were heated seats, rear headphones, driving computer, auto day-night mirror, headlight timer, remote control alarm system and power moon roof. About anything available at the time. Good luck, Jim Wood
  5. My '87 Coupe also. I remember that the armrest has the Ford part # molded into it, I used that to order some mounting hardware from Ford. Used '87 Chrysler La Baron HVAC controls and power window motors. The wiper switch is Jeep with a ground wire to it. Every thing they could use off of the Monte Carlo donor car. The power window switch is made by Cherry Switches from Germany. One of the main electrical harnesses behind the center console and going thru the console to power the rear TV is a Marine (boat) harness. I had a problem with the engine just dying, found
  6. Your probably correct. Still, I doubt there are many people with much experience working on a limited production vehicle from 30 years ago. Good luck, Jim Wood
  7. How about a little help with more information and pictures. This late year Avantis were very limited production vehicles, and Avanti used many different parts from many different suppliers. I doubt many people have looked at the wiring for a 1989 Avanti Convertible, what about 17 made. My 87 uses parts from GM, Chrysler, Jeep and Cherry. Brake lights, hazard flashers, and turn signals would not go thru the headlight circuits. What does your headlight switch even look like? Is it on the dash or on the column? If your switch is in the dash and has a circuit breaker
