Been looking at a lot of original 1st gen fuse panels lately, and noticed that the short fuse for the dash instrument illumination (labelled 'INST. LPS.') varies between 2A, 3A and 5A, as labelled on the fuse panel from the factory. Doesn't seem to be a pattern to the RPOs of the cars that I've observed this on, but there must be a reason for it (console gauges, center clock/fuel gauge maybe?).
Anyone know why the different fuse ratings?
