Edumacate me a bit on how to read these diagrams... if the diode is gone, wouldn't the whole light system not work?
im trying to figure it out now by looking at the bentley also.

i believe the diode is just a bypass or short to keep the lows on all the time. if you cut the diode out and leave the circuit unconnected, then the lights will only turn on when you switch them on.

i dont think so, thats a real DRL with dimmed headlights only (no tail lights).

for pre 89 or US guys, is your dash illuminated all the time, even with low beams off? (ie with the headlight switch in all the way).
