    you wont get the sports button to actuall function unless you
    retro fit the cdc/ids but i dont think this was available for the vvti engine

    the switch will not light up unless you have the above fitted but you
    can have it to just illuminate like the rest by adding the rest of the ground
    wire to the multiplug behind the kick panel

    I've just wired my sports switch up to light up,, last week in fact.... Basically,, remove the screen and heater vents in the centre, and pick up 1 grey/yellow wire and 1 brown wire... Yellow/grey is power , brown is earth... I used a floppy disc drive plug connector which I bought from maplins for approx 2 quid... At the rear of the sports switch there are pins,,, you only need to use pins number 2 and 5... The brown wire you picked up from the loom needs to go to PIN number 5 and the grey/yellow wire you picked up goes to PIN number 2.... The plug I got from maplins sits across 4 of the pins in the rear of the sports switch, as long as it sits across pins 2-5 it's fine... And it really is as simple as that tbh...

    if youve got the red plug behind the blank then it will already be wired into the illumination circuit and earthed out
    so it shud just illuminate automatically wen you put the side lights on.

    as per what AndyL said. Are you looking for the button to light up when you push it to activate sports mode? This MAY be possible by activating CDC in the BCM module, but it will still not do nothing other than light up if that.
