Finally got time to fiddle with capacitors in a reverse bulb.
Seen a video on YT of a guy fitting 35v 4700uf capacitor in parallel to a led bulb.
This was to eliminate led strobe with every bulb check by CANBUS.
As I had relays installed, had to rip them out and amend the wiring so I could attach the capacitor.
When all connected, there was no dash error and no strobing. At least not at the beginning.
Strobing gone but after 2-3 minutes of every time I started the ignition/engine, dash error would've popped up and shut the reverse bulb entirely.
After all this malarkey, I went to the original solution of having the led bulb in CANBUS system and left in the resistors only.
No dash error but strobing came back.
Cannot be asked anymore to solve it.
I did however, added some wiring to the tailgate opening handle connector.
This is going to be run to a button in the center console, just next to the parking system button and imitate handle switch.
Springs on the gas struts will lift the tailgate but it still have to be released and that button is the only way to do so, from inside.
To help my wife with opening the boot, while seated in the car, I had to switch off the engine, take the key out of the ignition and long press the boot opening button in the key fob.
Inly thing I haven't thought through is, that button being active while driving and if pressed by accident, the tailgate will open.
Will need to either reposition the button or fit another safety feature.
Also, when I was installing the switch for the air horn and standard horn, I had majority if the center console taken off.
Got Black High Gloss wrap from fleeBay and thought if wrapping it. It meant to look like Piano Black and for a moment thought it will.
That moment passed quickly as my patience run out. Wrap was easily scratched by my finger tips, trying to stick it to the silver bit and it was looking horrible.
On top of that, realised then, this could be high maintenance piece in the car and I would never get the swirls off.
Ashtray and bottle holder lids started to peel off on the corners event before I have finished wrapping.
Thought, if it comes off and lift up so easily, it will also do when the sun heat up the interior.
