I'm trying to hook up my hood light on my 86 Spider Veloce but I'm puzzled because the two connectors are male. (See attachment) The black plastic hood one with two wires is hot. The blue one goes directly to the light. Is there another hot wire that I'm missing? Or is one of the connectors incorrect? Pictures would be helpful.
Thanks!!

Should be a female connector on the wire going to the switch and a female connector on the wire at the light fixture proper. (them blue ones are somebodies crimp~ons from a wire kit, not stock)

BTW, depending on how early or late your 86 is, the light may only come on when the parking lights are on (early) or anytime the hood is opened (late). I dunno how to differentiate though.

Snip is from a papajam diagram, which you really wanna get becuase they are utterly cool to look at, hang well on the wall as art, and can show you where wires go in the cars harness with SO much more clarity than other diagrams.
