1979 Fairmont electrical problem

When I turn on the exterior lights, they all stay on for about 2 minutes then the parking lights and taillights go out but the headlights stay on. You can turn on the hazard lights and the blinkers and taillights flash. I dont have a service manual and the fusebox letters are faded so I cant read them. Any ideas?

Most likely a bad earth. Check all the earth wires - especially around the tail lights
