I know this has been discussed before and maybe most are aware, but I decided to make a new post for those that might be new. For the 6.0 interior, there is a map/courtesy light above the center console between the seats. This same exact light is used in the 2011-2014 Fiat 500. There are two styles, a white one and a black one. Lambo used the black one. These are made by the same company and the only difference is a slight difference in the pictures on the buttons. In any case, the light has a connector with three flat male prongs. These are numbered 1, 2 & 3 with 1 being closest to the outside edge. To wire this puppy you need to connect prong 1 to a constant ground. This will allow the buttons to complete a circuit when operating them manually. Prong 2 needs to be connected to an unswitched B+. Prong 3 should be connected to your door switches so that the lights come on when either door is opened and turn off when the doors are closed. These are available on ebay for around $50. I got a really nice one that looks brand new for $49 delivered. Just search for Fiat 500 Dome light (or Map Light). Hope this helps someone make their build more authentic-looking.

P.S. - The light has a short 2-wire pigtail coming out of it. This is for the bluetooth microphone built into the light. Unless you are installing a hands-free phone you can cut this pigtail off.

Hi all.

Been a while since I posted anything.
Anyway, Alfa 147/165 has the same light, more OEM.
