Glove compartment light, etc.
I was rooting around inside the glove compartment of my '85 5000ST
yesterday (trying to take a gander at the offending vent flap
actuator), when I happened upon the glove compartment bulb
Except, there's no bulb in it: just a little white plastic plug.
Hooked up my trusty Radio Shack multimeter: open-circuit when the
plunger is pushed in (fine, I thought), but about 10 ohms when it
was out --- WHAT?? Does anyone know what the deal is here? Just
a switch malfunction, in which case I could drain the battery flat
just my leaving the glove compartment open?
Also, what's the little squarish vent-like thing in the very center
of the top surface of the dash? Tweeter for the audio system?
Temperature sensor? Cooling vent for fuzzy dice :-) ?
