Completed the modification on

Completed the modification on my 308 that allows the parking lights to be used without the headlight buckets popping up.

Here are the URL's of the articles;
www.ferrariclub.com/faq/308headlights.html
www.ferrarichat.com/discus/messages/256120/227670.html.

Unlike the article I tapped into the male spades for the high and low beam circuits to the right hand headlight.

Step 2, Locate the motor relay

Step 3, The male spades common to the high and low beam headlight circuits. Move the existing connectors to the rear set of spades.

Step 6, Pop the blue wires from 3 o'clock and 6 o'clock positions from the motor relay base.

Step 7, Cut the 6 o'clock wire from the 3 o'clock position.

Step 9, Fab new harness and install.


The other end of the new harness installed at the 3 o'clock position.


I used 'electronics grade' uninsulated inline crimps with solder then double sleeved with shrink tube.

It works!

Hi Dave & DJ,

Why don&#


Hi Dave & DJ,

Why don't one of you post the link on the NW site and giveproper credit to those who shared in putting it all together. Like many good Tech Articles this appears to be the co-operative effert of more than one person and all those who made the articlepossible deserve credit.

Thanks Guys, JRV

Terribly sorry for the confusion!
I will be more careful in giving credit where credit is due. I just assumed that people would see who wrote the NW region article down at the bottom.
Thanks, DJ

My parking lights on my Euro 3

My parking lights on my Euro 308 come on without the headlights popping up. Was it the US spec cars that didn't or was it after a cetain manufacture date? The previous owner who was the original owner didn't do any mods to the car.

It is my understanding the ear

It is my understanding the early US cars that needed this mod. The later QV models were already wired properly. No mods required.
