    In that case, you should see the same as my pic, you can set it as BillyWhizz says using the 1000 and 100 for hours with 10 and 1 for minutes. The clock isn't 24 hour so you use the 12 hour format and then hit Set/Res. This had me stumped for about half an hour last night before I googled it later

    i did try googling it and couldnt find anything.... it was midnight though!!

    I've used the three wires but i can only see the clock when pressing Clock as it doesnt stay on permanently so im guessing this purple/white wire from the steering column will also keep it on?

    The purple/white one under the steering wheel is needed to bring the remaining power as far as I can work out from wiring mine up on Saturday.

    Hi mandelbug, is there any chance you could take a picture of where you wired up the violet/White under the steering wheel??

    I'm so stumped and to top it off I damaged one of the plugs on the instrument cluster...

    Managed to fix it but the obc still not working properly!!!!

    Is there a list/diagram of what these wires actually do on the obc????

    I did the blue connector on the back of my cluster, need to see if I can get a new sleeve. Didn't realise that you have to press the top for the lever to come down

    Undo the three screws holding the big panel under the steering column and then you can remove the panel (I didn't get mine off completely) under there, you will see a big block with a load of cables going into it. One of those is white/violet. I managed to end up pulling mine out of the block by accident but as far as I can tell the block itself is just a holder.

    There is a wiring diagram listed in the first post which explains the mandatory connections and then some of the ancillary ones. I have only done the mandatory ones on mine.

    Bit difficult to get photo's at the moment as it's dark and I am about to head off to bed as I am up early for work.

    It's a violet/White that's needed to go under the steering column

    Teres actually 2 in the black block... Ones a standard sized violet/White and the other ones is twice as thick and the same colour!!!!

    I also had problems with the blue and White connectors adding the terminal connectors to the block as when the connectors are plugged back in, it pushes the terminal connectors and they don't connect properly!!!

    I've spoken to a local scrappy that's going to pull a few wires for me from the block!!!

    Let's hope I can sort it at somepoint!!!!!

    Still a bit stumped on this one, will be having another go at the obc tomorrow morning, am I right in thinking the violet/White wire is the smaller one of the 2 in the black blok under the steering wheel??
