Dashboard confusion.

Can anyone help me with identifying the 4 switches on the enclosed photo of the dash of the 1500 Spitfire I have just bought. There are 4 flick switches where the 'normal' light rocker switch is, 2 either side of a couple of jewel lamps. The left 2 operate the lights, side and main beam, but all the right 2 appear to do is light the jewel lamps.

I have never seen a dash like this, the car is a late W reg 1500.

Thanks in advance.post-1354-0-06585800-1440264561_thumb.jpg

That is a conundrum! I would guess at extra lights, either spots, fogs (front or rear) but there are plenty of possibilities. An electric fan, heated window on a hardtop, ejector seat, who knows? think it is time for you to investigate and see where the wires lead. You may get lucky, especially if the PO left the wires loose under the dash and not taped into a loom.

The central gauge isn't standard - that's where the light switch was and the (previously rectangular) hole has been enlarged.

 

I'm afraid you'll have to experiment and/or trace the wiring to discover what the previous owner's done.
