So i have just got my custom switch through which i am planning on wiring up properly to the car but i cannot figure out the relay that comes in the pack.
I have got the switch in the car and illuminated which looks lovely and works perfectly but the relay part confuses me, i have asked the seller and he gave me a link to a German PDF ( http://www.carstyle4you.com/pdf/Montageanleitung_VW.pdf ) which explains it to some degree but i cant figure out which wires i need to use and was wondering if anyone here has done this before could maybe give me some insight to this.
here is the diagram the seller sent me:
I have searched other forums and found threads to other installs but only one shows the relay i have.
This is what the back of the button looks like: (taken from this thread: VWVortex.com - Flapper Switch DIY - CarStyle4You Edition)
The ESP connector is to light up the button at night when the car lights are on, which i have wired up and works perfectly.
and the relay:
His application is different to mine as he has an ECU involved which is the confusing part as he says that in the above pic pin 12 is ground and pin 14 live so pin 11 should be signal but i cannot be sure and am tired of blowing fuses in the car when trying it out.
oh and here is the button i have in the car right now:
any help appriciated
