That model car/year had an ammeter not a voltmeter.
I believe you are seeing an amp draw that is causing the ammeter to go below 0 amps.

Check the dome light for shorting to ground. I would expect that a fuse would blow on the dome light circuit or you could remove the fuse and the problem will go away.
