Where is the bulb under the dash that the fiber optic line from the lighted driver's outside mirror themometer goes to? Any help is much appreciated. Thanks.

Usually, the fiber optic cable goes to the bulb housing in the wiper control switch.

Is there any way to patch that fiber optic cable? I didn't know the thermometers were lit and snipped mine at the yard thinking it was electrical.:duh:

Electrical tape.

That's what I thought. I just haven't gotten around to trying it yet. Thanks.

Grab quite a few tooth picks. Enough to wrap the two ends of the fiber optic cable. Tape the tooth picks on to one of the ends, when that is secured enough. Insert the other fiber cable into the hole of toothpicks. Tape that end into place. This should keep the two cables from flexing away from each other while driving.
