Hey everyone I'm looking for a little info on the Map Light in mustangs. I have an 87 GT and i was trying to figure out how to turn the stupid thing on. I recently bought a new light bulb for it and nothing. I assumed that it turned on when it swings down but that does nothing in my car. Is there a switch somewhere or is mine just broken? The clip which used to hold it up also has fallen out. Any info would be great.

When I pull mine down, it turns on. I may be a novice to electronics.... But I would bet either the broken clip or a blown fuse.

The fuse is fine. If it turns on by just pulling it down does anyone know if the clip actuates the light or the actual angle of the light so I can figure out how to fix it?

There is a little black button about 3/4 of an inch from the clip above the light... When the light comes down, it releases the button, thus the light comes on.

Mine did the same thing and I just jumped the switch with a toggle. It is kinda a getto way of fixing it, but I got the thing to work!
