I've been having problems with my rear lights after a previous owner bodged into the wiring for a towbar or trailer board.
Auto electricians have had the car today and now identified all the snipped wiring and put it back how it should be, although with that done the lights are still not working as they should.
The brake light switch is showing a fault so I have got a replacement ready for them to fit, however, they think that the rear fusebox (REC module) may have been damaged and suggested I replace that too if I can pick one up cheaply.
I have two questions about this, as there are a couple on ebay at the mo...
1. IDENT code? my rec has a BJ code on it so does that mean that I need a BJ code on the replacement too? What does the IDENT code do exactly?
2. I have heard people talking about tech 2 clearing of parts? Can I use any replacement REC from a breakers on my car? Is it just the engine ECU that has to be tech 2 cleared or does this part need to be done also? I've asked about the available ones on ebay and none say that they have been cleared, so dare I just assume that they don't need it?
Hope someone can enlighten me urgently before I shell out on parts that may not work!
