UK reg 54 plate 2.4 V6 rear number plate lights not working - CAN Bus issue?
I cannot get my rear number plates on my 54 plate 2.4V6 saloon to work, it's not the bulbs, have checked and am only getting 0.4v to the terminals that power the bulbs.
A friend who is a mechanic has traced the wiring back to the feed panel & he says it could be something to do with the power feed from the CAN Bus set up?
As I understand it (I'm pretty technical in electrical terms) the CAN Bus sends the power down a set of connections to the various terminals at the appropriate time of electronic signal being received to light the lights & do whatever else in the car is activated/in use at the time and is managed by this CAN Bus system.
This being the case (or not if something thinks different) is there anyone out there who knows what the issue might be & how I might resolve it as I would like to avoid expensive diagnostics & having my pants pulled down by the Audi dealer as he & I dont get on and I'd like to use a local garage if possible?
Any assistance gratefully received.
