    Can only get the fog light on the inner facelift lights to work, otherwise they are not coming on at all. The outside are working fine for everything. I want it to work like a facelift car.


    The adaptor looms I used from 'tuning fanatics' had a 4th wire coming out of them that I connected up as an earth so that may be wrong?


    Any help would be appreciated as I have to give this vcds back to a mate tomorrow!

    Coding used:
    Btye 9 to Dec = 0 - as the final brake light
    Byte 10 to Dec = 0 - Fog lamps as a taillight
    Byte 12 to Dec = 36 or 48 - dimming rear standlight
    Byte 19 Bit 2 Cold Diagnosis rear active - this must be activated

    Ok after more hunting around I think my issue was that the extra wire I earthed needs to be connected to 12v... Can anyone confirm?
    where would I get 12v from easily in that area?

    Do you have a 12v boot socket?

    Yes but that won't really work as the inners are in the hatch. Will have to remove the entire trim piece which I was trying to avoid then I guess and use the number plate light power

    Surely there's a 12v live going to the inners anyway, and what adapters have you gotten?

    There is a 3 wire plug for the original inners and 4 wire for the facelift plug, the 4th wire is separate from the rest of the loom.

    These ones:

    If they're the Kufatec harnesses then they should've come with instructions. The separate wire is connected to the number plate lights to supply power to the inner LED's
