    I performed a search for the instructions to do the mod where the headlights stay down when running only the parking lights but the page (http://www.nwrfca.org/faq/308headlights.html) is no longer available? If someone has the mod on their computer please email it to me at jomar3385@aol.com From reading the threads its a pretty simple mod involving two diodes. Thanks in advance. joe

    The aforementioned modification is unduly complicated. The circuit below requires one relay and 2 push button switches and is a removeable add-on, not a permanent modification.

    If the ignition is on, pressing the 'on' switch turns on the parking lights and pressing 'off' turns them off. If the parking lights are on when the ignition switch is turned off, the parking lights turn off. The main stalk performs per factory.

    I placed my push button switches on the roof of the small glove box at the left of the steering wheel, bottom of dash. Out of sight, easy to reach from driving position.

    The circuit is part of my Ferrari 308 wiring diagram package, together with the headlight and other mods.
