absolutely.  But one reason the parking light circuit goes down is,
bizarrely enough, in the "flash to pass" mode the high beams are run
through that circuit!  Doesn't help.  The wire feeding that circuit was
also beginning to destroy the plastic connector housing at the fuse box
end on my car, too.
