Arrow 190E: Fiber optic light cables ... for those who know ...

How many fiber optic cables should there be? Total of four? Some switches (above the vent seem to have spots on each side)

One to the left of the dash cluster for the dome light, and one each to the rear window heater, sunroof and antenna control switches?

Thanks, in the process of putting the dash back together after a heater core R&R.

I have had mine apart soooo many times....but I can't recall.

My GUESS would be one to each side of the instrument cluster, one to the sunroof switch, one to the rear windows defrost switch and two to the antenna switch????

The reason I think the antenna switch takes two optic cables is its the only switch there with two illuminated choices...antenna up or down. The sunroof switch and defrost switches only illuminate on one side.

Does this make sense??? Nonsense????

You are guys are great. Thanks

I am finding the same thing with one off to the left for the dome switch.

I ended up with one extra-long optic cable and decided to run it from the left light pickup over to the right side for the "fourth" supply to the switches.

I assume this is what that one is for.
