    remember when we fitted the front door lights rob.we removed the panel on the passenger side, just below the glovebox to gain access to the various block connectors.
    we then had to remove one connector (black one ?) to reset the system so that the lights would work.

    just a thought robin !.......would it be possible to tap into that block connector to gain a feed to the footwell lights using your looms ?
    this way,once the plug is reconnected it should reset and power up the lights.

    let us know your thoughts on this robin,maybe check the diagram to see if its possible,

    regards,

    alan.

    I was wondering if anyone could help me out i followed this guide for my b7 A4 but for some reason the lights dont work. i only tried it for the drivers door and when it didnt work just gave up.

    I tried the positive wire in pin 16 (my car is nov 2007) so it should or worked in that but it didnt. Also i unplugged the black connector and put it back in as instructed.

    Still didnt work so tried pin 13 and still no joy.

    Also i forgot to mention i soldered the earth wire in as instructed too and it must be correct as my windows still work.

    anyone have any ideas to what i may have done wrong?

    Maybe because i didnt do the passenger side as well?

    Or could it be when i was un plugging the black connector i was somehow doing it wrong? i tried it with the ignition on and off when i unplugged it both times and it didnt make a difference.


    Any help at all i would really appreciate thanks.
