Vette(s): 1979 Corvette, ZZ4 with serpentine belt front dress, ATI THM 350 with 3500 stall, Vette Brakes and Products suspension, tires - 295/50 rear 255/60 front on factory aluminum alloys, Autometer guages
I have a 79 with power windows but manual locks. This seems strange since it also has the factory security system. All the option lists I have seen have power windows and locks as one option. Also my wiring diagram (GM) shows that power locks were used with the security system. Am I reading things wrong? The car came to me well worn but intact 18 years ago. I did not find a build sheet even when I pulled the fuel tank. I really don't care enough to go spend 50 bucks to get a copy of the original invoice, but was just wondering.
Vette(s): 1978 Silver Anniversary L82
Previously: 1965 300hp Coupe in 1967.
1967 435hp Coupe in 1968-70.
1969 350hp T-top w/ac and all power options.
Hi Mark, My '78 has a factory alarm with power windows, but no power locks. It is armed and disarmed by the driver-door key locking and unlocking. The alarm will be tripped by opening a door, lifting the hood, or taking off a T-Top. There is a separate horn that beeps when triggered, and can be stopped by turning the driver-door key to unlock.
