Have tryed disconecting battery, no luck.
The car has an aftermarket trailer connection with a Trailersafe unit installed, could this be a problem ? If so how do i troubleshoot this, and do I need to take the car to the dealer before replacing the TIPM ?
I have traced the output cable from TIPM to front parking lights to colour code White w/yellow, there is also a secont White w/yellow cable coming from the TIPM, but this one is without voltage/power, if i cut this one and disconect battery/reset, it should have power is TIPM is OK ?
Sorry, my mistake, it was White w/violet :-) , it is poring down now, will cut cable and reset tomorrow and let You know the result an rate positive on the feedback.
Have a nice weekend
Have cheked cables at rear, no short, no power.
Do You know which colour the block/connector (that attaches to the TIPM) of cables that runs to the rear ? Just to make sure that i am tracing the correct cable/outlet.
thank You for Your answers, have traced all cables from TIPM, and found a SEPAB EB706 unit for automatic driving lights under the dashbord, have tryed changing the unit, NO LUCK, have spliced the cut cable where SEPAB unit were connected and now the lights work fine vith switch in position 1 and 2, but now there is no driving lights automatic working, to have running lights You have to use switch.
Thank You for all help, regards Kai.
Yes, it is an aftermarket installment made by dealer when the car was new.
It is mandatory to use lights when driving even on daytime here in Norway.
I do not know, the car was bougth used 6 monts ago, and even if instruction book sea so, no headlights has turned on when i start the car, so both original setup and SEPAB unit has failed. Even now, when i have spliced the divided cable (used in SEPAB setup) white/violet, lights only turn on when i use switch in position 1 and 2.
Parking lights, instrument lights, taillights and licenceplate lights turn on when i turn light to position 1 and 2.
No runnlng lights when i start engine and light switch is in position 0
Did the replacement running lamp module come with a manual or wiring diagram? i'm trying to determine how it's wired but have been unable to find a manual so far.
This is the adress for the installation/wiring of the automatic driving light unit.
This unit has been disconnected now, and i am trying to get the original setup to work (main beam with low voltage turns on when engine starts).
The link doesn't work, unfortunately.
I am happy with how the car works now and will not try to alter setup, as all lights work when using switch.
Thank's for all help.
Will give best rating, regards Kai
