An important milestone, I put power to the system and the security is on. Turn key and red light stops!!! So I must have matching BCM and key head.

The super size aircon has to sit low. I was meant to get the compact but I can squeeze this in.  Wife not impressed by how low it sits but I can close the glovebox lid and fit stereo with all ducts. I'll have to cover it somehow.

Will trim tags off of course.

Gotta be really careful with what I put where, here are the plugs for the door looms. The left is front passenger and middle is drivers door. Right is rear door. The number of pins is more in the front so driver can operate mirrors, mirror switch and still have power to window when child lock for windows is on. They all look identical except for that

Ok so I worked out where I was going wrong with the wiring, I joined the white/black wires from the indicator stalk to be a continuous circuit and on the vt headlight switch and joined the grey and brown/blue wires to permanently have the dash lights on. I want the parkers to come on with the headlights and then the high beam when the chrome stalk is pulled out to its second stage. I used the dark blue/yellow high beam wire from the indicator stalk to activate the high beam.  Position 2 with white/black standard beams and position 3 with blue/yellow high beam.

So far the head light and the high beam selection is perfect.

Problem one: as this is an SS the manual has no ident for wiring, as in has guide for exec then berlina then calais and states the light blue wire (in photo not connected) is parkers for exec but fog lamp for berlina and calais. The original car had fog lamps but I can't see where another dedicated park lamp wire is so when I connect this to the headlight to activate parkers (the parkers activate) but the indicators come on solid and cut the dash lights out as per photo.

Problem two: there is a black/green wire that is not in the manual so I have no idea what it is for BUT, the manual states there should be a grey/red wire and there is no wire here in that colour. All the black/green wires are usually Earth.

Turns out through all my stuffing around the Earth above the Drivers tail light was not Earthing properly  Wink


SO now I have a VT headlight switch converted to an FC  Cool

Small steps JB. Been absolutely flogged by the bosses at work. There is a reason they owe me 45 days of leave..... I can't get any time for the old girl and its usually when I am tires and don't have the mental power to go over it all quickly - Beer doesn't help either
