Headlight switch wiring

Hey guys, I am wondering if anyone has a diagram for the wiring on a 06 f250 headlight switch? I am trying to just get the parking lights to come on with auto, not the headlights also. We got pulled over for tinted tailights the other day so I brought them to work and redid them lighter but I am still looking to get the parking lights to make them look brighter. Thanks for any help. Nick

One turn and your parking lights are on... It's not that difficult. There is even a handy chime that reminds you that they are on when you open your door, so you don't leave them on by accident...

You got pulled over because you have your lights tinted, which removes the view of red reflectors. Those are a Federal mandate, so having your parking lights on will not make the red reflectors any brighter.

So you will still be in violation; Heed the warning and remove the tint...

How did you tint the lenses? A friend of mine did her mustang with a mix of 50/50 gloss black/clear and they had a nice dark color but when the lights were on at night, you'd have never guessed that they were tinted.

That's the same way I did mine. I just taped up the backup lights so they would stay clear. Then I cleared the whole light.
