Auto-Check bypass?

Is there any way to fool the auto-check system into thinking my front headlight
really works?  On the way to work this morning I had no less than 4 syptoms
flashing on that console.  I can fix two easily (get some gas, & fill up the
washer reservior) and the wear sensor on the rear disk is easily bypassed by
completing the circuit with a wire (rotors & pads on the way,) but I'm unsure
of how to fool the lights check without disabling the whole system.  Buying a
new bulb isn't an option, with no glass in front of them (still working on the
Euro replacements) the bulbs don't last five minutes in the rain/snow/road
grime.  TIA for any options.
