    Hi All.

    Quick update, technician has spoke to me, he is awaiting results from the bulbs that Slice tests for me, once I have that he will start modding the bulbs and get out to me.

    As the bulbs I have sent to slice are the same setup I made up when I tested them in oneniners A3 2011 and the ones that are running in the B7 in the 1st thread.

    Thanks

    Yep errors here too, no big deal though, we all appreciate the time and effort you've put into 2 pesky little bulbs that you don't even see when you are driving! They look great though, perfect amount of light :happy:

    Fingers crossed for the test bulbs, I also don't mind paying for postage or sending the old ones back

    Yours is a 2011 isn't it? If so, you would get an error on the DIS if you fitted them I'm afraid.
    I'd just hold fire and follow this thread as trups has got a solution and will be updating us when the modified versions are available.

    He's said he'd not ask us to send the old ones back to him, but a lot of us have offered to do this and pay a couple of quid towards postage so he isn't left out of pocket. This is up to you though.

    At the moment I don't think we need to do anything, just wait for updates.

    i know if there are airbag lights its a fail.

    quick update, the test bulbs came in from the factory, they came with differant resistors to what i was expecting and they have not worked.

    slice is sending me all test bulbs back and i am going to have to build one myself here and test and then get back to the factory to make a new mould for one of the parts, i will be able to do this by the end of this week and get it sent to the factory for them remake the part.

    Not great.

    getting errors still. got a few more things I can test but I need the factory to build them.

    if you guys want to start sending back the ones that are bringing up errors I am happy to refund.

    Test bulb spec was a canbus festoon with a max of 3 led smd 3528 with the halogen bulb on it that slice tested and worked.

    If anyone has access to VCDS would you be able to run tests and currents, I am unsure of how to do this via VCDS tho, anyone here help?

    would need to know what the current is while on?

    Hi trups!

    I'm in no rush, just intrigued on how your getting along. So I'll hang on in there until something is resolved, unless you decide there's FA you can do.

    However, I'm not completely understanding it all.

    The test bulb that you mentioned above that worked, the one that slice tested for us, what's wrong with them?
