Default M061 Headlight dimmer

Hi there,

Attached jpg is part of the ’89 schematics.
In column H one can see a module named “(M061) Headlight dimmer”.
What is that module actually doing?

M061 is option code for UK cars.
So when not a UK car, how are the pins bridged together?
Or are they all five just “open”, connected to nothing.
Wiring goes to a 5 pin socket but noting is plugged in that socket, is that it?

Thanks for your inputs!

IIRC the UK cars had a "required" dim/dip feature. Headlights up but a smaller bulb used for low light situations. Need to go look at my 88 UK car.

Does it have the "Do It Yourself" manual transmission, or the superior "Fully Equipped by Porsche" Automatic Transmission? George Layton March 2014

Thanks Roger!

May I add a second question?
Where is relay XXII “Backup lights” powered from in automatic cars?
When I follow terminal 86 of this relay I end up at the instrument cluster connector 1 pin 4.
Is that pin really powering relay XXII… … …
