    Depends on what you call completely as the led part will only work with the correct door modules, however everything else wiring wise uses the same connections, I seem to recall this conversation before & it turned out it wasnt as per oem or something like that.

    hmm that wasn't the impression i got from this particular member. i've got facelift door mirrors anyway. but considering the plugs are the same there's no harm in giving it a try - i would do exactly that but my wing mirrors are 130mi away at my parents' house. when i get back to leeds next i'll give it a go

    J modules were added in 08 & were fitted on a phased in facelift as we're aware, these were the 1st to feature facelift led indicators, so unless you have J or above, then led's will not work oem fitted, as there isnt coding for it, bottom line.

    No, oem is to wire into door modules & code them, the other route is a shortcut & tbh not one I advise as you never know the issues it may raise later, adding to a circuit its not meant for, it may or may not be ok, but I wouldnt want to risk a £200+ CE on that bet.

    I have two brand new door control units osf and nsf p/n 8P0 959 802J and 8P0 959 801J
    The reason I have them spare because of a none showing retro fit job for folding mirrors.I have since fitted the Mirrors to another vehicle but have these spare

    So if anyone is interested give me a shout with a figure

    I wired into my ceb due to the main reason of cost at the time

    Doing it that way was only a temp fix until I got hold of correct doors modules.
    I do now have a set , but I still haven't fitted them yet. It's on the list :)

    Nhn is totally right in what he is saying. I know mine have been in a year, and tbh , they have been fine up to now, but somethings hide for a while before rearing there ugly head!

    My advice would be to fit new door modules, as it is a lot easier and totally oem.

    However, if you decide to hard wire straight to ceb, it is very easy to find the correct 2 pins with a test
    Meter. Just look for switching voltage when indicator is turned on

    it depends on how many pins your plug has . either 11 pins or 12. count how many pins your plug has then use the info for the chart

    Turn signal right

    + means +v is output from ceb

    VESCM 11 pin plug ,pin 06:12 pin plug, pin 10


    So if your plug has 11 pins it will go on pin 6 , and if you have a 12 pin plug, it will go on pin 10

    No, for 2 reasons, 1st if its a facelift or prefacelift you do need to code for your cars features although if wired correctly your car may work of the bat fine & if its prefacelift then the looms 32 pin/20 pin need repinning to work.

    Ok.... Me and RS Need to put the Icing on the cake of are 8p3 conversions.....:eyebrows:

    We need to wire up the New mirror indicates ...as it's really frustrating both of us at the moment.....and also dangerous while driving around with no side indicates.

    I've also bought some new alpine speakers to fit in as well......as I'm already getting the door cards off so might as well do 2 things at the same time.....less bother...really...

    I'm ready to fit these new door modules and was wondering what I need to re-pin from my old module?

    My door modules are J .

    Also would I need to take my old indicator wire and put it through 2 of the pin sets ? As I still have my old indicator hanging out from inside the wing. :think:

    t16
    earth 11
    signal 13

    just connect them from the motor to the mirror and test them, if they work just insulate the wing wiring

    see what happens

    if they don't then just wire direct to the mirrors as i need to check the wiring differences 2004 /2009

    2004 j519 sorts the signal out and 2009 i think its a canbus signal

    2009 has a different set up with central electrics and convenience in the same control unit so think you are going to have to wire direct

    see how you get on

    Just check the resistance isnt gonna be an issue, if using sides for supply to mirrors, given its going from filament to led's.

    Its always been a can signal for the mirror led's mate, they used the older module still on the 08 facelifts iirc then swapped to the newer module 09 all in one module on MY10, but still retained same can signal for the mirrors through the door modules.

    with them having the (k) j519 then yes they should be able to encode the door control units and j519 to send can data to the door mirror

    but it needs looking into as the wiring on the vehicle is 2004 with hard-wired wing indicators

    sure we will find out soon enough lol

    I hazard a guess if you used newer door modules that support coding for mirror indicators, it may still work with older CE's as didnt code anything on the CE to support the mirror led's, only coded door modules, but still have to rewire the door modules regardless.

    The distributed function would suggest so as indicator switch on signal through steering control unit onto the bus network j519 then forwards the signal to the door control unit and then to the led
    However the can data signal would need binary so I can only presume j519 needs looking at as the 2004 would suggest j519 would simply enable the relay within to out put the signal were as can is generating a command to the door control unit assigned to the network

    Anyway if they wire in of t16 to the led and output test the door control unit it should work

    However then it needs to be checked the input into the door control unit is sending indicator request

    All good fun lol

    Ok I'm getting a little confused on what I actually have to do here ... Sorry if I sound a bit of a novice ...

    OK I've sourced terminal 16 and have sourced the wires for 11 & 13 which my old wires need to be connected too.

    So do I disconnect them out of the pin plug and join them to my old indicator wire ? If so what was the point of me changing the Module ?
