    I've got an 18 button obc I've retro fitted it but only the wires from my 7 button obc.

    but the 1 10 100 1000 buttons dont do anything. it wont let me set the time or any thing, anyone got any ideas why?
    Cheers, Jay

    There's an alternative. There's always a third way, and it's not a combination of the other two ways. It's a different way

    I see you've made you're decision now lets see you enforce it.

    Did you move the power and earth to the white plug?

    If not and you kust plugged in the 7 button's black plug you can't really expect it to work.
