    Default Am I a **** or what!

    Evening all,

    Thought I'd get round to the rear light mod. I found the cable but after cutting the white tape along with the ribbon cable!

    Now on the dash I get a message Check Safeguard or something like that. Think it was to do with the interior alarm sensors.

    Is it hard to change this cable? Or should i just up grade the alarm to a Clifford Intelliguard 950?

    erm.. upgrading the alarm will be a NIGHTMARE if GG's experiences are anything to go by....

    it would be better to try and repair the cable with a soldered bridge..

    oops.... been there and done that !!! - along with quite a few others....

    I 'literally' stapled mine back together.... overlap the ribbon cable and staple them together ensuring the staples follow the cables exactly..

    If you want to... overlap the cable quite a long way and then staple in two places along the cable to ensure plenty of connections..

    The staples effectively act as a bridge for each cable... as Mark says above..

    Then just use insulating tape to bond the whole thing together..

    Sound neanderthal but it worked !!

    Staples now what an ingenious Idea. I think that how you spell it.

    I'll do that with plenty of insulation tape
