Default Overhead 2 bulb vs 3 bulb lights

My 97 --3 bulb overhead--fixture is broken. I have a 98 2 bulb fixture. They appear to mount identically other than needing to cut off a plastic 'foot' on the 98.

Anyone know if this will work electrically? Will the 2 bulbs come on when door opens, etc.?

Thanks.

That might be a good way to let the smoke out of some wires, or a computer?

It's a dome light and they are fused.
