Q: The interior lighting of the dashboard is very weak, even if I put a bigger lamp there. When I turn the instrument light regulator to increase, the light after a point it turns off the light. Is that correct or do I have a broken regulator?
A: I have the same problem on my Fulvia as well as my Flaminia. I haven't fixed it yet as it is not bothering me. The control knob is connected to a very simple wire-wound variable resistor. If you take the variable resistor off, you will immediately see the problem. For such repairs I usually use 3M self adhesive copper tape. Alternatively you could pull the two wires off and connect them. This means, that your dashboard lights are always at maximum (when of course the lights are on).
