Interior lighting

I just bought my first fiat and it does not have any kind of interior lights. No gauge or vanity lights.. Is there suppose to be? I sure hope so. It is a 82 spider.

you should have a dimmer knob on the dash for the gage lights. you should have an interior lite on the upper console. this should have a switch on the light itself to turn on full, turn off, or door activated.

Go ahead and buy a whole set of new fuses. They are cheap, and easy to replace. Clean the fuse holder contact points well, and be sure the fuses are snug in each location. This sort of easy fix can clean up a lot of electrical issues. Good contacts at all ground points is another easy cheapie - much bang for the buck.
