new member with problem

hello everyone my name is Steven i just bought my first ever Trans Am while its not an actual GTA i have alot of the GTA items in my car the digital dash, the 5.7 tuned port, body kit, wheels, spoiler. hopefully i will be accepted by the community (fingers crossed lol) anyway its an 87 Trans Am i picked up for 900 it has some issues so i probably will be hanging out here alot. anyways i was seeing "F Lamps" on my DIC ever since i bought the car and started investigating it i pulled my side marker lights and noticed these bulbs (left one was in driver side, right was in pass) one looks like an LED bulb other i cannot make out the number on. i know im supposed to use 1157 bulbs, cause the system is so sensitive to the resistance could this be the root of my problem? any advice is appreciated thanks

ok now im confused. i was surprised by my owners manual specs say my rutn signals used 2057 my headlamps used H6054 and my park lights used 194. people tell me i need 1157 in my turn signals and the one you posted is totally different. i should probably go by my owners manual right? what are the headlights your using?

Re: new member with problem

Welcome to this site! No worries just because you do not have GTA. They are basically the same thing really except for some of the items and some of the rpo codes. Good luck with your Pontiac no matter if it is GTA, Firebird, Trans Am or Forumla. They are basically all of the same, just some have extra special options that makes them nice to have. Mine is special to me only just because it was my very first car that I ever had in my life, I bought it during the time in my life that I had the greatest time, and I have had it for twentysix years now. This is the only things that makes my GTA special to me. If it did not have these, I most likely would probably not still have it today. Actually I would not have it now if these special things about my GTA were not there.
