OEM or Aftermarket spot/fog lights

Hey! Both Fog and DRL relays are not fitted! Good one mate! Guess I need a reference to what they are to proceed. Are they shown as the same part number as one of the currently fitted one serving a different purpose? Might be a start?? I have a few in the workshop - one might even suit. Still only w...

OEM or Aftermarket spot/fog lights

Yep, that is now my thoughts as well. I am only interested in the DRL wiring NOT the Fog combo. I have a DVD service manual on order so once that arrives I can have a look at what needs doing. We would never use Fog lights on the Adelaide plains! Have you looked at that part of the wiring acmotor? B...

Had a look at the wiring and mounting arrangement for the Fog/DRL assembly and here is what I found: http://forums.aeva.asn.au/uploads/282/Mods_10d.jpg I found that neither connector was ‘live’ under any test condition. So I think the stock that was mentioned as part of the Fog/DRL accessory package...

Yep it is a rear fog lamp assembly used on the UK and some Canadian models as least. I was wrong. Spoke to a very helpful Mitsubishi parts guy late yesterday and he said the reason a very limited range of these optional extras are offered in OZ is the company did not seek ADR testing and approval fo...

OEM or Aftermarket spot/fog lights

OK I think this sums it up: ‘The DRL's are a miniature bulb and are on all the time the headlights are NOT on . . . . . You cannot turn them off. The foglights are a separate, much more powerful halogen bulb which are only on when the headlights ARE on, and only then if you manually turn them on. If...

Question about rear seat belt warning lights

OK I will concede the safety point of the 30 secs warning.

But first time drivers get a bit confused by why it should be on when you drive away.... I DID!

Is it in any new ADR's etc???

I will have a play with some LEDs low current loads and get back.
Also thanks for confirming the mounting arrangement.

Question about rear seat belt warning lights

Yes she resorted to just leaving the rear belts clipped-in as well. The handbook does state it’s normal but just seems way to long for the warning light to stay illuminated, don’t like driving half a block with a RED warning light on the dash. Can’t imagine any ADR or other design rule would require...

Thanks Hippie403 I am aware of that posting but I am not proposing to switch the head or tail assemblies to LEDs only the interior lights. It was my understanding that the interior lights on cheaper cars are not load monitored and do not log CAN faults. Only critical lights are load monitored – brak...

Interior lights?

The interior lights are not LEDs?

Seems a switch over would be logical??

Especially as our hatch seems be left open a lot and switching the multiple ‘DOOR’ on/off position switches is a pain all the time.

Question about rear seat belt warning lights

Is it common for the two rear seatbelt warning indicators to be on for a ridiculously long time period? We are finding it kind of in your face annoying. Why would it not be the same time-out as the front passenger configurations?

Hi Johny, It was by word of mouth (I think). And I think he is a new member of the Adelaide AEVA so that is really great. He was going to convert his own but the price he got this for was less than the cost of all the bits needed! Plus a fully restored unique vehicle. Hopefully he will enjoy the wor...
