In denmark it is illegal not to have ligths turned on, even in day times. Therefore my 155 2,0 8V 1992 has automatic lights.

I desparately want to remove this system. On trip abroad it would be nice to turn off the headlamps. I think it is illegal to use headlights in dayligth in many countryes.

Does anyone know where the system i lokated? and how to remove it?

Hej Kai
(Better do this in English, those islanders aren’t that good at anything but English :D ). It's legal to drive with your headlights on aboard.
In my 155 (16v) I just turn off the lights, and that that.
Earlier I had a 33 '93 on which I had to remove a fuse, as far as I remember, it's situated near the battery.

You are absolutely rigth about the language. But if we were to write in danish here, no one would benefit of our ideas.

It is not enough to turn it of. I can turn on parking lights alone, thats all.

I'll go home and look for a fuse near the battery, but i beleive its is more difficult than that.

tak.

Not sure why you want to do this. I drive with side lights on all the time. Tests have shown this reduces accidents and the way I drive it helps wink

I drive with my dipped lights on when I'm motorways etc.

Anyway, the headlights of the 155 are so cool.....why not drive with them on all the time ???

Wrinx, like your pic of Dennis

The last time i drove in the daylight on the motorway with my headlights on i got hit by a van and my beloved VW got squished and written off!!

That probably has something to do with "white van man" though!!

Hi guys
I’ve started some time ago to use “driving light” (i.e. dipped headlights) abroad. You used to get flashed at from the Danish border all the way south but not anymore. Even when overseas no one seems to bother, in fact, many use dipped headlights both in Europe and elsewhere.
I don’t se the point of sidelights – you won’t be seen more than 50 m away. And why only on motorways, hopefully, you won’t meet much oncoming or crossing traffic. It not so that it’s just to “clear the fast lane”, is it?
Kai, I’m sure an Alfa dealer or specialist will know where to find the day light fuse, I can’t remember how I found it in the 33; whether is was obvious or in the manual. But all I had to do was removing fuse and refitting it returning.
Craig, can’t believe “beloved VW”! Beloved – was that after the writing off? :p

Alfisti regards
