    Hey everyone just a quick question, Has anyone been able to do the 18 button conversion and also got the check button to work?

    The check button is the only thing iv not got working, just wondered how to go about checking things?

    Is there loads of little sensors? can i tap into the existing wires to make it work?

    Just looking for info and help really lol

    Any help is greatly appreciated

    I converted from analogue clock and got everything working, bar the check control and the air-con related timer function (since I haven't got aircon)

    The check control requires the module and a hell of a lot of wiring, plus a few sensors for things like low coolant level warning. You would need to run wires to the rear lights, and have a massive fiddle trying to sort it all out.
    You can turn the check control function off, so that it no longer pops up when you first start the car and every time you push the button, it just does the OBC LED check instead.

    The LED check just lights the whole screen up so you can spot any non-functioning pixels. It appears as all the squares lit up,

    OK sounds like some confusion between the "Display check" which is test 01 and the "Check Control" button If the pressing the check control button makes it say"check ok" or displays faults it is working. If pressing the check button shows a line of blocks it means check control is disabled in that OBC even if it is all wired into the car. I think that can be enabled by unlocking and altering the EINHEIT numbers or whatever, however you have to have the wires in place to the body control unit and averywhere else AND have a body control madule that supports check

    Then your best bet is to look at scrappies. Check control is not normally sold as a kit, and all the individual parts will get expensive.

    Your best bet is to look on RealOEM for a parts list. You will need those parts I believe, but since I hadn't looked too far into doing it myself I'm not the one to know.
    You will need a low coolant warning sensor.
    You could also do with finding a wiring diagram for your car, which will show the CC wiring.
