About Glove Box Light Assemblys
A glove compartment is the compartment that is built into a vehicle’s dashboard. It is believed that it is so named because drivers would invariably wear gloves and the glove compartment, also known as the glove box, was what was used to store them. Although most models of vehicle have only a single glove compartment, which is located on the passenger side of the car above the footwell, some models do have more than one.
To assist in identifying the contents of the glove box, many manufacturers have included a light that automatically switches on whenever the glove box is opened. This process is controlled by a component known as a Fiatglove box light assembly.
A Fiatglove box light assembly is located in the interior of the glove box. In a typical system, the switch contact in the Fiatglove box light assembly is usually turned on. As soon as the glove box door is opened the light will come on. The contact is broken when a spring loaded lever is depressed by an arm that is connected to the glove box door. This happens when the glove box is closed, causing the light to go out.
If a glove box light assembly is faulty, it is relatively easy and inexpensive to access a replacement part from an auto electrical parts retailer or motor component shop.
