Totally! Haha I kinda knew I would.

Did you have any issues with your auto light switch? My sidelights came on without the ignition on which is a little frustrating

Any more info on this anywhere?

Presumably sensors, control module and coding required?

Not at all! It’s a 5 minute job, switch is a direct replacement and the sensor routing I just took out two pieces of trim and ran it straight in. The destructions are translated from Chinese so need a bit of re-reading but it’s very straight forward. This is one I bought because I’m a cheapskate.

Nice seats mate. Again, I can see this will come alone nicely.

Nah I think it’s just broken, I can’t get it to work at all. It’s highly irritating, did you program it with the engine on? Or ignition on? All off?
It’s very frustrating

Still can’t get the bloody auto lights working, the destructions are so badly translated. Sean did you have to program yours?

[mention]Red lion [/mention] I had a similar issue with mine when I got them, I unplugged them and left the power off for about 10 minutes and plugged them back in with the switch in the off position and they then worked.

Worth a shot if you’ve not already tried it.

I’ll give it a spin. It’s either that or I’m going to throw it at the wall and have a tantrum. Seems fair right?
