Re: uhhh error in rpo codes?

W62, for our application, is an Aero package. The problem you found is that GM recycled and reused RPO codes throughout the years. An RPO code could be reused but have a very different definition. Thus why you can get different results when you use an RPO Code database to look up an RPO code. An example of this is RPO Code Y84. We know RPO Code Y84 as the GTA option code between 1987-1992. However, prior, RPO Code Y84 was also used for the Recaro Edition Trans Am.

Re: uhhh error in rpo codes?

ok thank you, so these 5 codes i have on my rpo code list, dose that mean my car has those options in my gta, and the gtasourcepage code list, just dont show them cause the code changed? or dose it mean that say w62 comes up that gto thing, aka was reused from the gto, or w.e so my w62 is actually the aero package but on a coder it comes up the gto package but actually on the gtasourcepage rpo code list the areo package is a diff rpo code, but i do have that package its just under another code a reused code? sorry if u cant understand what i just said ..... sorry for all the Q im just trying to find out every detail on my car so i have it cause im never going to sell it,

Re: uhhh error in rpo codes?

GTASourcepage does not have every single RPO code listed.

W62, for our GTAs, is the aero package. There is more than one RPO code for the aero package. W62, for our GTAs, has nothing to do with "GTO".

Like I said, the reason why the database you used stated GTO is because the database you used was not accounting for the fact that GM reused and recycled RPO codes throughout the years. This is an issue common with those RPO decoders that aren't specific to any platform or period - unlike the codes listed here on the GTASourcepage that are specifically for the GTAs.
