    theres 4 sockets on it,labeled as follows:

    1 pin plug = t5
    1 pin plug = t6
    3 pin plug = - t3 +
    4 pin plug = - t1 t2 +


    anyone?

    is everything working now as I'm trying to do the same 7button to 18 button conversion. I know that power cables ahve to swap over but if the rest stay the same on the balck plug, what about the mpg and speed and stuff like that?

    swapped the wires on the plugs over, so the brown and red and brown live and ground are in the right plugs and plugged it in thinking it will work but with only some functions until sorted properly but the buttons light up when side lights are on but the screen display wont light up and is flashing on and off very faintly.... have i got a faulty obc?
