    2006 to 2011 DRL Wiring diagram on the plugs any help please

    Hi just replying to this and my 1st time on hear or any forum.
    I have a 2006 2.0 TFSI 225 S-Line full spec. I have changed the front to the 2011 S3 Look, My problem is with the lights as mentioned.
    I bought some of them Kufatec adapters that I think are cr4p and a waste of money, what a squeeze getting them in and only the indicators are working. I have replied to this as my plan is to bin the adapters and rearrange the pins to match doing the job this adapter supposedly does and have the space back so you can get to the bulbs. Does anyone have pictures of the plugs ie what colour does what on the headlamps. Thanks

    as i said in the other thread where you posted exactly the same post...

    Sounds like you ordered the wrong adapters... There are 3 types... One for the 2004-2008 cars, one for 2008-2009 cars and the last one for 2010+
    as your car is originally a 2006 you should have got the first adapter (2004-2008)

    as for space when fitting them its easiest done when the headlights are off the car. I have done loads of these installs now and not had an issue with the cables

    Hi thanks for the reply Ash187, these are what the German guy on ebay.de said I needed? I think it would be easier and simpler if I just swapped the pins around and added my own repair wires with new clips on. You wouldn't know the order of the wires If I added pictures would you? I'm off to Barcelona in a few hours but will reply Friday when Im back. Thanks again.

    yes those are the newer headlights but the year of the adapter is based on what year the car is made... people often get it the other way around and start looking at what year the lights are made lol

    if the car is a 2007 and it is facelifted to have the new 2011 headlights then the 2004-2008 adapters will need to be bought as thats what the car is and thats what the adapter is wired for.

    No ebay off some German company:
    NEU Xenon Scheinwerfer Adapter Audi A3 S3 8P + TT 8J | eBay

    been told there wrong ones but they insist they are correct? I just want to hard wire them and sack them off, would be neater just swapping pins about but need a diagram. I have just done the same thing on a VW Transporter and the lights are spot on

    Its not working, I noticed the xenon main bulb has come on and was flickering rapid, when I look at the adapter iys like there is a couple of pins that are not meeting with any other pins? Im sending the cable back, thats why I would rather wire them now, I think that the light come on because the recognised it had xenon before and has reset itself after so long, I have had that happen before on cars that have had a previous feature.

    Did you code the car for xenons?? Sounds like a coding issue

    the fact the it lit up means the wiring is fine

    Isn't kufatec supposed to be a simple plug and play mod bar the cables for the drls and coding I do think think you would pay £49for the harness then have to mess about with pins and stuff

    it had xenons previously but older type, I haven't coded anything, all I have done is plugged the adapter in one side but I will be removing it to send them back as I am going to change the pins around once I know what goes were.

    Well you can't blame the company for your fault in buying the wrong adapters? They wouldn't be selling them if they were all wrong, would they??

    If the car had xenons before then you shouldn't need adapters!
    What setup did you have and what are u trying to achieve?

    The lights are totally different and wired different even though it had xenons. I have gone from 2006 to 2011
    I am trying to get the new lights to work as they should only they have drl also now. I will add some images tomorrow. Thanks

    looks about right... just plug them in and wire in the yellow wires as per instructions... then code it up and you will have working xenons

    have a look on my blog for a rough guide on how to fit it and where to pass the wires through

    without connecting the wires and coding you wont get the xenon shutters (high beam) or DRLs. Also you may run into issues with the xenons as the power sent to them wont be correct without the coding

    I haven't a clue, no help on hear so far? Maybe once the 2 yellow wires are wired the drls will power, when they come on the otherday though I had plugged in the old original xenon light.

    there isnt any point in trying to test an adapter if you havent plugged it in properly? plug in all the wires and code the car with the right coding and you will see that it will start behaving like it should do.
    if you dont plug in the wires or code it then there will be issues and of course it wont work properly... thats just common sense
