    i fitted a resistor, jumper wire, green smd and another resistor, connected a wire to pin 14 on the back of the clocks and ran that wire to an earth which puts the light on

    Liking the Idea of the CC Light but sounds like a right pain to do!
    THE STATEMENTS MADE ABOVE ARE MERELY MY OPINION AND SHOULD NOT BE INTERPRETED AS STATEMENTS OF FACT UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED

    Aye, a fitted the resistor, the smd and then connected the two contacts up (jumper).

    Then i got stuck as i knew pin 14 had to be connected but i didn't know where and couldn't find any info on it

    So i just earth pin 14?, or is it a switched earth from the ECU for the CC?
