Refer to page 25 i believe it's on. Most likely your resistor box is not wired correct

I put my car in reverse, put on ebrake, open the door and walked to the back to see how it looks. "oh shit my reverse light is broken!" Then I realized the car goes to neutral when you open the door in reverse /smh

After receiving over 20 pm's, just dropping the link here lol. Anyone can find it by searching. Just message them and work out a deal. All Alibaba sellers are willing to negotiate. Ask for EMS shipping if you want it in 1-2 weeks

I washed my car here in central PA, washed it outside in about 27 degrees Fahrenheit then pulled it in a warm garage to dry it off and zero condensation. I dont anticipate them having any either in the future.

If anyone is able to modify the turn signals to be non sequential, id be interested. I didnt open up the lights but opening up the plugs revealed PCB board with a lot of components soldered onto it. I believe the sequential turning lights are "hardwired" and wont be easily modified to blink at the same time.

One thought is to delay the turn signal on the inner light to match the outer light so it turns on at the same time. I also noticed within each outer and inner light, its sequential as well. I can live with that and think it wont be too noticeable if they blink at the same time.

Im not an electrician but i hope someone who is can chime in. From what i gather, you can connect a resistor and capacitor in series on the inner turn signal to delay when it blinks. I attached a wire diagram and i think it just needs to be added to the blue and green wires(inner turn signal light). I would modify the aftermarket tail light wire harness and not the chassis harness.

Thanks for any help.

They might be no brainers to most of you on here but just a few things I had questions on and it might help a few of you out while installing. Other then that my v2 install was a breeze it took me about 30 minutes and fitment is damn near perfect.




What are the extra wires for. Bayoptics has some small wires there not sure for what

Would help to explain number of wires, more descriptive information.
Assuming itís the two small wires? Those connect the trunk lights on some models. Does the video not show them?

First video at 1:18. The small wire. I have a 2018 model and oem did not have those. I saw another youtube video where the guy didnt connect those two small wires. Do we know what its for?

He mentions it in the video. Pre LCI. We talk about it a lot on this thread but most people donít have the patience to read back.
Youíre 2018 so probably not needed based on what others have said. Iím preLCI so I needed them. They connect to the inner lights like I stated.

The 2 pin yellow and red wire is from the aftermarket outer tail lights. Its not original to the car.

They connect to the inner aftermarket tail lights so the brake lights turn on in the inner lights. You have to route them through the hole between the two mounting studs of the outer tail light.

Your inner brake lights arent working.

If you want to have the inner brake lights also turn on like the outers, you need to connect that long wire from the outer lights to the inners.
