    if its just dead relays in the LCM, seems to me that replacing them ought to make it plenty reliable if the replacements are as good or better than the originals were. Something tells me the...

    isn't it the little black bump sticking up out of the dash pad on these? Older ones it was under a small perforated area. Either way if you block the sensor the lights are always on.

    Extra hole I'm guessing is one that would have been used on split bench cars but wasn't on your original solid bench? I know the seats in my car have 4 bolts to the floor.
