    Hello everyone, I have done the upgrade of getting rid of the dreaded orange indicators to clear all around!

    Im now having a problem with the passenger (Near side) rear light, The brake light & fog light wont work..
    Now if i unplug the drivers side (offside) then the brake light will work but as soon as i connect the drivers side (offside) light back up it seems to disable the brake light on the passenger (near side) rear light..

    I have been out side for hours making sure all the bulbs were fine connections were fine on circuit board etc but damn can i get it to work!! I have done a search on the forum and found people having problems with the driver side (offside) light but not the Passenger (near side) I dont believe my car has the CCM? if it does hell i don't know how to use it..

    PLEASE HELP

    Thanks guys

    Thank you for that i shall give it a go, Will this work even though im having problems with my near side?

    When it says bridge pins together shall i cut into the wire thats on the connector in the car and join the wires?

    Thank you

    You can just connect the two wires together. Connect the wire from the driver's side pin2 to the passenger side wire that goes to pin 7.
    Normally that's what the circuit boards are doing anyway - the brakelight goes to one light cluster, then the wire goes from that cluster to the other light.
