    Default Upgrading a newer REC

    Hello, I'm going to install new stuff in my 2003 vectra, so I'm upgrading the REC today.
    My original one is a BB (2003) and the new one is FP (2006).
    After connected and paired the new REC everything is working fine, but not the rear direction indicators. I noticed a different wiring in the new REC.

    Can anyone help, please?

    Out of interest, where on the REC did you find the unit model code (Side? Back? Top?)?
    Thanks.

    One possible guess.... the BB unit being 2002 might be half-canbus while the later FP unit being 2006 might be full-canbus ??

    yes right, I'm trying to turn my half can to full can. This new REC is from a facelift
    I'm planning to retrofit autolights, powertailgate and alarm in my hatchback.

    Power tailgate in a hatchback? A lot of people will be following that with interest I imagine, don't think anyone's done that yet.

    Yes in the Uk, but not in a lot of the European ones (the OP is in Italy).

    No, no one yet. It will need a lot of work, it's a little challenge
