just looking - AU yeah?

power comes thru park lamp relay and is controlled by headlight switch [which possibly has it's own fuse {relay} but this manual doesn't say what? just shows] with power from ignition fuse

I have fixed my illumination light problem,the cause of the problem was a severed wire some where in the loom from the connector block behind the rear tail light and the lights.Rather than look for the broken wire I ran a new cable thus bypassing the old wire.My nephew is a auto electrician he said that is a common problem on wagons because of the gate being used constantly and straining the cables going from the gate too the body of the car
Thanks to all who tried to help
