    Hello all: I am looking for the parking light, head light, and fog light switches for a Countach 5000 S. Does anyone have any idea what "normal" car these were originally sourced from? Please PM me if you have any of these switches to offer.

    Michael:

    Most of the switches were used on the Innocenti DeTomaso and Innocenti Mille.

    Jason (at BullStuff) and I have been working with the OEM company (Amper-Auto) over in Italy trying to get more produced. The problem is, the switches are so old, they have told us their supply of parts to produce them has been exhausted. They are investigating to see what they can do.

    The Climate switches (SIDE, FLOOR, DEFROSTER, REC) are still available. (White "X")

    The toughest ones to locate are the Parking Lights, Fog Light & Main Beams. (Red "X")

    The Emergency Flasher and Door Lock switch are also still pretty easy to find. In fact the attached image shows the units Jason just bought from Lamborghini. Lambo says they are NLA, but you can still get them

    Stand by as we are trying to source the last 3 (and toughest to find), Fog Lamp, Headlamp and Parking Light switch.

    Thanks for the info, Jalpa Mike! I looked on the Amper Auto website. The light switches are shown as Innocenti Mille items. They don't show a way to actually buy them, though. Please keep us posted on their (possible) future availability.

    Yeah, that is sort of their "heritage" catalog. Like he told us, those switches have been out of production for so long, most of the parts have long since been extinguished.

    From what Jason has found so far, all the switches can still be ordered from Lamborghini. The one that has proven to be the most illusive, is the "parking light" switch (shown here in a a photo I sent to Amper-Auto).

    I also cut the out the relative switches that the 5000QV Countach uses and put them on one page. I included both fog lamp switches, even though the Countach only uses the Rear (Retronebbia).

    Most of the switches for the climate control have the exact same "pin outs" on the back, its only the silk screening on the button that is different. However, most of the light type push buttons are all different on the back, as one would expect.

    Ok, i'm back: i found what i have at home, the light switch and the fog light switch. I offer those two in exchange for this:

    LAMBORGHINI AVENTADOR LP700-4 2011 SILVER Autoart 1:18 AA74662 | eBay

    If there is anyone that is interested in this "trade" please let me know via PM.

    I was told by the electrician shop there is also the fan switch and the hazard as new old in stock, but they are running out of items, so if you want one, hurry up, from me or from Emilio or where you can find it.

    Park light switch is nearly impossible to find, now. No big problems for the others.

    As i want to be correct, I have to say this: here those switches (except the unfindable parking light switch) cost very low money, more or less 13 euro each, until they are available
