    Hey Guys about that wiring?

    AganVW and Jimmygez1961,

    Hey guys did the the extra wire in the adapter head back to the cecm? Also did you guys use any diode to isolate the power from the leds coming from the drl and the running lights?

    Thanks,

    Awesome,

    AganVW,
    Good to hear. So where did the wire in the middle of the adapter go? Did you differ any from what Jimmygez1961 did on the wiring? Do either of you guys have any some screen shots of the vcds settings? I am sure it will make more sense when I am in it. You guys rock and the lights look SOOOOOO good. :bowdown I can hardly wait to get my lights in too.

    On another though does the high beam shutter move to make the full blast of the HID light shine out?

    I kind of was under the impression the extra wire runs back to the cemc to control the shutter?

    Thanks again for the quick feedback!

    The shutter works fine without the cecm about 3 months ago I blew out a cecm thank god I new a guy at vw and he took care of it for me so I did not mess with it but I bet there is a away to use the cecm u know these car have modules all over so they all talk to one another I still have some more work to do to get this bulb out when u start the car.when I have time me and my friend will figure it out but right now the people that have the Chinese headlight can at lease have them in there car with very little issue untill I figure it out or some one else can.

    Thanks, great job on the video. Just wanted to confirm beside the wire harness will you need to modify the vag?

    Hey guys, what tool did you use to repin, or did you do a bit of splicing in the center of your adapter?

    Thanks,

    Radio Shack has a cheap tool you can buy to push the pins out of most plugs. Also better ones available at better electronic parts store. They are usually only open Mon-Fri tho. Some open on Saturday.

    Stl yes we spliced wires I the middle of the adapters. And I ghetto rigged me a pin out of a paper clip bent into a U shape and then filed the ends flat with my drimel tool. I know it's crude but it was effective.

    I almost have all the pins out ready to re-pin, question that I am trying to understand is that Jimmy mentioned something about running a wire between the two lights. is that between the 10 and 9 circuits or is that between two other circuits.

    Thanks to all that can help me out.

    Jimmygez1961,
    Is this to stop the lights from flickering? are you really connecting circuit 10 to 9 to the 4 & 7 of the other light? Or am I reading this incorrectly?
