Has anyone tried to wire headlights to function with ignition switch?
I am really enjoying my R170, especially with the warm weather. I do have one issue I would like to resolve. I would like to disable the "lights on" warning signal and have the lights go on with the ignition switch. This is how my other car is, and I just drive all the time with lights on, which is recommended in my state.
I should be able to find a switchable lead, that allows me to over-ride the lights by turning them off at the light switch, but will only come on if the ignition switch is in position 2.
Has anyone tried this, and is it difficult, and most importantly, if it is done, will it throw a code and light up something on the instrument panel?
