    Mystery Interior Light?

    Just a few week ago I noticed i have an small interior type light on my 00 TA under the center of the dash in behind HVAC controls and stereo that stays on all the time. It also seems to be just hangin there, not attached to anything. I havent looked yet, but Im pretty sure my 98 bird dont have this light. What is this light? Is this where its suppose to be? Is it supposed to stay on all the time?

    Is the climate control all lit up or does it seem like there is a dark spot?

    Is it possibly the glove box light? Is there a light for the cigarette lighter?

    Not sure, but it doesnt hurt to check. If it stays on all the time and you don't know what it is for I would just pull the bulb and tape it up.

    My 2000 WS6 has a light in the ash tray. Pretty sure it's always on with ignition.

    THE MYSTERY IS SOLVED! It was the glove box light! The harness with the bulb and the switch that turns it off when the glove box is closed. Seems that the spot where this snaps into place is broke off inside my glove box. I have no idea why it was rerouted to hang in behind my console??
