    Default Possible to fit auto lights/wipers

    Is it possible to fit auto lights/wipers to my Signum?

    Just picked up the sensor and an auto dimming mirror from the Scrapyard.

    Not quite John I retrofitted it to my car which is a pre-facelift full canbus same as Lee's. You need to check how many wires you have on the back of the plug going into the light switch if you have 10 then you need to buy a new light switch and have it enabled. You have to be careful with the wipers as they made more than 1 module so it depends on your existing wiring loom in the overhead panel and for the mirror you need a loom running from the mirror to the REC which is about £35 from Vx.

    Must be a full canbus thing, I know there are some that can't be retrofitted with it all

    Is my Signum likely to have the loom in the headlining?

    How easy to check (And where)?

    will pull the headlight out in a bit and report back how many wires I have going to it.

    Just been out and I do have 10 wires.

    Also where does the module go?

    Is it worth me going back to the scrapyard and getting the roof loom and anything else I need from it (What and where are the other bits I need)?

    I don't so that will be ideal.

    Pm me what you want etc.

    If I retro fit auto lights and wipers will my windows roll up if it rains like when fitted as standard?

    Also how does this sensor fit to the screen as the car I took it out of had some sort of bracket bonded to the screen that wouldn't come off.

    Will do Lee once you are certain you want it because to fit that sensor I believe you will need a new windscreen.... this was one of the things that put me off doing this mod.
