Inside the car,for illuminating the vehicle's interior at night there will be two to six high mounted lights and probably two map lights in the front upper console, lights of footwell, legside lights, lights on the dashboard, doors etc and at least one light inside the glovebox.

And then you can add in all the lights in the centre stack plus a panel that may be on the rear of the centre console which is illuminating the controls and all the warning lights in the instrument cluster. A steering wheel of a car also has illuminate lights to controls at night. And the counting goes on!
