So, I decided to let go of the 94 STS in lieu of a 98 STS...I've always enjoyed the 98+ styling of the STS and this one is beautiful in Crimson Pearl accompanying the Z06. The interior and exterior are excellent with 85,000 miles on it, and I believe all the miles were highway with the condition of the car. Now I'm in the process of perfecting the car and working out the little bugs abound and I figured I would come to the experts for some help. Here are a few of the annoying issues i'm looking to fix:
-Heated seat no longer heats...the last time it was operational it got abnormally hot and then ceased to work afterwards. The button lights, and a click sound is heard when turning it on...and then a subsequent click every minute or so afterwards. The other seats all work. Is this a burnt out seating pad and is the pad stitched into the STS leather? I hope not if that is the case!
-My ashtray door in the middle of the console will not stay closed. I'll push it down and it just clicks its way right back into open position. I figured I would disassemble that part of the console and see what was going on but wanted to ask here first if anyone else knew a fix.
-Right above the driver's seat where the window frame meets the roof there is a leak. It is actually right where the A-pillar meets the headliner on the interior, and water seeps through a bit when it rains heavily. I figure I'll take some pieces off and try to fix it but was just wondering if these STSs had any weatherstrip problems.
There are other problems but most are cosmetic including the LED center high mounted brake light being out...I hope to take care of all of them in time for spring If anyone has any solutions to these relatively small problems, let me know...and thanks in advance! (P.S. Hi Sal from over on Corvetteforum...I'm Pete99SS over there
