I wired them to the license plate lights, but now I have the xmas tree effect...

What should I code? I can't find a clear answer on this :| .

Just installed LCI rear lights with the LED on my 2006 e87 non xenon. is it possible to code out the halogens on FRM1?

Add +MUEB to VO in CAS and FRM? what lines do I have to change in FRM after that? bit confused with this any help would be greatly appreciated.

If you scroll up to my earlier post those are the values to change in frm1. You don’t need to change the VO in CAS and FRM. Just edit the frm to those values and that is all.

greeting, earthlings! :) i'm new here, from zagreb, croatia! i read this post a couple of times, my english isn't so bad but a man gets lost in al these q&a, so just to make sure if i got this correctly - my car is 118d e87 2007 LCI, non xenon. i assume my rears are low (saw the picture a few pages back, looks like lows), so - can i get the leds somehow into this thing or is the proper procedure to buy some highs and work on it then?

i'm sorry if my question is repeated, but as i said - not a domestic brit so i got a little lost in all this info.

thank you.

61138364832 is the terminal, you will need some 0.75mm2 wire too.

When you say "0.75mm2 wire" do you mean 2-core wire ??
