    Unhappy Help Please! Fitting Footwell Light - Different connections on MY10?

    Hi guys,

    I'm just in the process of fitting footwell lights on my 2010 S3 SB using the great kit as supplied by Robin on here. I fitted these to my old A3 with noproblems.

    Now it looks like my 2010 S3 has a totally different control board under the dash, and I cant see where to connect the feed for the footwell lights. My connections/board look very different to my old A3 and what’s in the instructions here: My DIY Guide for Retro Fitting Foot well lights

    I seem to have 3 big multi connectors now, rather than the smaller block ones?

    Can anyone advise? My car is in bits in the car park, lol! Pics below of connections:

    Hi.

    I'm in the process of retroffiting MFSW buttons, and while I did my research, I've found out that MY10 has totally different electronics than it's predecessor MY09 facelift.

    For example, steering angle sensor changed position, so now there's different high-end steering wheel ecu. It's the 8P0 953 549 K for MY10+ and 8P0 953 549F for the MY09, just like the MY08/07...

    Also as far as I know, in MY10 central electrics ECU module is now combined with conv. EUC unit to one big unit. That's why you have larger connectors. I don't know how to help you, expect if you could look out at schematics in ETKA?

    But I'm wondered are the connectors the same for the MY09 as is stated in original DIY?

    Steering angle sensor hasnt changed position, its completely gone & yes the K is the new steering CU which also allows for the sprung loaded headlight stalk, the angle readings are now taken from the rack.

    You're correct, the CE board has now been combined with the Conv module, so both are accessed as one in module 09 & 46 is redundant with vcds, you'll need a schematic for the 09/10 onwards which will show the 52 pin connectors they now use, of which iirc there are 3.

    Yep, I could not retrofit the footwell lights as the connectors/looms are totally different on MY10 cars.

    The door lights are the same though!

    but you could maybe look for right pin number in some documentation, maybe ETKA or ELSA?
