    Kufatec loom has shown up! Now to start trying to get my head around the wiring.

    Does anyone have parts numbers for the CH/LH connector and repair wires i'll need? I have the auto-light switch with the CH/LH button, just need the connecting half.

    I have the same problem as what you described below. How did you sort the issue?

    Cheers.

    Can anyone advise which pin is no.3 on block F so i can confirm that this is connected properly?

    thanks

    that problem with the light/rain sensor was an issue with the power from the fuse box... it was loose

    Just to follow up, turned out my earth wasn't happy. Moved the earth to a different bolt and now the auto-dimming rear view mirror and rain-light sensor appear to work.

    I've just tried the auto lights and they seem to stay on all the time. Sounds like you had the same issue in the past and it was more luck and a bit of fiddling that sorted it out!

    Can you tell me which bolt did you take your earth from?

    I'm having the same issues, the DIS is displaying that the light sensor is defective, and on VCDS i have two errors, one about the sensor and another one about the canbus connection.

    My earth is a "splice and join" to an existing earth wire, should i move it to a bolt?
    The thing is that i have 12v at the pins on the rain and light sensor, i checked.

    I would try any possible solution, before having to replace the sensor..i am still hoping that it's not defective.

    i use the bolt up just above the steering column to the right above the CE module. if not you could use the OEM grounding point just behind the carpet on the right side of the car behind the bonnet release lever

    Hi Guy's, so on an OEM install how would these wires be attached? Would they really be spliced too?

    In what respect spliced, you mean if installed from factory, if so then its all built into the cars original looms, if doing after purchase then new loom added with pins on ends to plum into connectors.
