    Default Automatic dipped headlights

    Hi all,

    Sorry if this has been covered so many times before (hoping for a link if it has as i'm getting lost finding the info through the thousands of ****** useful posts )

    I have a 52 vec c sxi. It has automatic wipers and I was informed (rightly or wrongly I have no idea) a while back by a friend activating the automatic lights is quite simple.

    Can anyone point me in the right direction...do I need hardware or is this a 'soft' enable by standing on my head at 11' with the sun at 6 o'clock and 11 twists of the key in the ignition?

    Thanks in advance all

    JD

    Hey buddy, I am led to believe that auto-lights can't be added to the pre-facelift vec

    vx don't seem to want to tell me as I think they've gathered i've no intention of paying them extortionate rates for the work even if it can be done. If anyone has done it on the pre-facelift please let me know Thanks for your replies gents

    I can't see why it cannot be done as the light sensor is already there in the rain sensor. New switch for the lights would be needed. Anyone familiar with the tech 2 menus who knows if its there or not?
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
