    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

I am getting a Viper alarm and remote start. I was told that I can change the color of my security light indicator but what is the part number and where can I find different ones? Thanks.

I own the same model Grand Prix! :bacon:

What security light indicator? You mean the little red dot on the dash? Or the security light on the instrument cluster? And why do you want to change the color?

And why do you want to change the color?

To match the rest of her pink color scheme lol.

Easy as probably getting a piece of plastic the same size and coloring it or getting an led the color if its on the instrument panel, these are just assumptions of what I would do if I wanted it, I actually don't know the full looks of a GA too well so I wouldn't trust me :angry:

Well we called the place where I am getting my alarm and it is a blue led and it's built in my antenna so there wont be a light on my dash. Oh well, blue is 110% better than red ;)

Most alarm systems have some sort of an indicator light. you should find the wiring diagrams online and put in your own lights.

I had a buddy with an 05 Civic Si and he put a blue LED near each door like on the B Pillar and they were blue... when the alarm was on the led flashed on each side so if a jackass went up to either door they would see the flashing and go away.

Well I looked at it. The part of the dash the LED light is built into, just pops out. But you have to be careful because this includes the "light sensor" which works your automatic headlights.

But yeah I was under the impression with an aftermarket alarm, you no longer use this light. And the manufactuer has the option of installing a new/different light somewhere on the car. The red light on the dash will only work with the factory system.

I guess they say that the blue alarm light will flash when its armed but the red one wont. It will only flash when the car is not armed? lol idk. Its not that big of a deal. Just a though lol

:wacko: I have two red scanners as they are called, on for each side, and have them wired up to chase back and forth once the alarm is engaged, it does more to discourage a thief than the simple blinking LED :lol2:

:willy_nilly: when? I might also suggest trying this idea too... I'm doing it when I get back, but try getting the LEDs place into your A-Pillar, so it would have a clean factory look, but still be pretty awesome!
