    Standard on the 93 sixty IIRC. They're electrolumenescent and should light up with the lights on.

    They were only available with the padded roof. By now, many do not glow. They are also rare and hard to replace.

    Electroluminescent. Google it. Similiar to neon, but not powered by an external source. BTW, I do believe that they were also on 1993 Sixty Specials ordered with standard padded roof DELETE, as I have personally seen such.

    Re: lighted crests on the pillars

    I saw a 91-93 sedan DeVille at the junkyard today that had the padded (not cabriolet) roof with the electroluminescent C pillar lights.

    I checked just a few days ago, and they are still available from GM. They are discontinued, but there are about 100 of each left and they are going for about $100. I need one for mine...but I figured I have a little time as I'm sure the average owner isn't replacing them too quickly!

    One other possibility is that the glow fluid is low. Have you checked that lately?

    Re: lighted crests on the pillars

    I have seen the electroluminensce lights on a 88 coupe de ville at the junkyard west of Minneapolis last week when I was there, it is an elec.flat piece of metal (as dallasj as stated above) that is coated with phosphorescent pigment coating and glows when energized. I took both the covers off of it and tried to put them on my 89 Coupe de Ville (with vinyl top) opra lights. They are a different shape, but fit ever so close. Bummer the lt. covers are only sold as the lt.kit assembly, and are discontinued item. The discontinued warehouse has some assemblyfor 166.0$ dollars a piece. I will modify the cover I have to work on mine. Otherwise that was the only Coupe out there....

    Or you could just do like Stoney (stoneagecaddy) did and put a small incandescent lamp behind them.
