I think that was for a map light right above your beats.  Mine has a plastic plug there.

Rare, and spendy. And you need the light. Probably easier to retrofit something, and make your own light for somewhere else. I was thinking of adding a button there to turn on the dome light (despite the dome light having a switch to do that...)

Driving home from the PnP friday evening i noticed my high beams weren't working, but i didn't think much of it. Then as it got darker i noticed my dash lights weren't working either. so i pulled over and checked my fuses and noticed the park lights fuse was out and the plastic had melted around the fuse. went to the parts store and got some new fuses and cleaned up the contacts with some sandpaper i had laying around. It's working fine now, but i think i want to get a new fusebox.

so boys and girls, the moral of the story is clean your gadamn fuse box regularly if you don't want it to melt.

You just reminded me I blew a tail / brake light last week, pulled the fuse for inspection and forgot to replace it. HAHA I hate when people drive around without brake lights.

Hopefully it stays on cause it didn't stick too good on some parts.

You may need to check / PM with a forum member named Nicoya  about that hole in that panel. He usually goes to the Eagle Rock swap meets he has dealt with that before.
