Is this a trick question? I'm quite sure the green light is unused by factory.

Folks have come up with a variety of thoughts on how to use it - but those are customizations. (Incl superman's fantastic cruise control install)

I have not seen a production 1961 or 1962 Cadillac where this light was used from the factory.  Superman's use of it for cruise is custom - very cool though.

This was probably the intention of the light, but never made it into production.  The owner's manuals for both years in both the instrumentation section and cruise control section make no reference to the light either.

The hot/cold feature was installed on Chevrolet only.  After all, who would want a Cadillac that told you it was too cold to drive?  My 63 Impala had the cold light, but, when illuminated, it said cold.

Like Dan said, the green lens had no aparrent use.  I decided to use it for the cruise control install.  I wish I still had that thread saved, it was a great addition to the car.

Where is the light for trunk open? The power trunk release pull down has this feature.
