my 85 SE has the brackets for the internal lights but there are no sockets or wires that appear to have ever been hooked up. The trunk has a gray cover plate over were the light would be and nothing in the front trunk area. The plungers just activate the AJAR dash light .
I 'upgraded' my base '86 coupe with the interior & trunk lights & the dash power deck release as follows:
I got the interior cross-car wire with a plug & two sockets that fit the existing mounting holes from a parts car; the plug was different so I adapted it to the existing connector that was hanging from 2 white & one orange wire by the fuse panel.
I got the trunk light wiring & ran it under the rubber trunk seal to the battery area. The wiring is easily fished through the existing holes. I got a new trunk light assembly from The Fiero Store.
I got the trunk release solenoid, wiring & switch which plugged into the exiting instrument pod harness and the rear wiring harness connector already there. The wiring is fished through the decklid.
Look closely in the front compartment on the passenger's side - you may find a small socket just hanging from the wiring harness for a 194 push-in bulb. It might be tucked behind the wiring harness.
