The autolamp system provides automatic on-off control of the headlights in addition to normal headlight switch operation. The system includes a delay feature which keeps the headlights on for a pre-selected time period after ignition is turned off. Major components of the system are a photocell/amplifier assembly, a headlight control relay, and an on-off switch with an integral time delay control (potentiometer).

The headlight switch must be in the OFF position and the autolamp control switch must be in the ON position for automatic operation. The photocell must be exposed to ambient light to operate properly. Time delay can be varied up to 4 1/2 minutes before lights turn off automatically.

Set autolamp control switch to OFF position. Turn headlights on with headlight switch. If lights do not operate, check and correct standard headlight circuit. 3. If standard headlights work okay, check autolamp fuse.
