these snaps are of the small console above and at the center of the windshield of a '91 SDL. what is the highlighted section - that grating?

is this the termperature sensor for the hvac system? that's about the only thing i can think of. or was this some sort of microphone for a built-in phone (seems unlikely).

You got it. :thumbsup:

It's the temperature sensor for the automatic climate control system.

Yes, its for your cell phone mic.







Just kidding!!!

No, I *think* that is where the temp sensor is located for your auto climate control.

Temp Sensor. Which gets really screwed up in the sun on a dark colored car. My A/C would freeze out an Eskimo until I get some air circulating in the car after it sits in the sun.

Make sure that the sampler blower motor is running. Wet your finger and hold up to that grill, or take a tiny piece of Kleenex to it. With the key on, it should be pulling air into that grill. I had to replace the sampler blower motor, which is located to the right of the glove box.

I'm getting an odd electric motor-esque noise coming from the glove box area, I hope it's this sampler motor... It sounds like it has a bad connection, as it cuts in and out randomly.
