Ok, first rule of moding. Test before you seal things shut and bolt it all back together!!!!!
The first mode of operation is the start-up routine. It is the first portion of code that is run when the controllers are powered up. This routine lights each ring in sequence from 0% to 100% and back to about 80% from the inside ring to the outside creating a staged power on effect.
By default, the unit will run all 3 rings at about 80% intensity, this mode is selected by virtue of no lights being switched on, i.e "Daylight" mode.
When it becomes dark and you switch on your headlights (or the automatic headlight function does this for you, should your car have that feature), the controllers will detect that the driving lights are on and dim the rings to about 60% brightness for night time operation.
If main/high beam is engaged all the rings will be switched to full power 100% intensity for the period the main/high beam is active to provide maximum light from the front of the vehicle.
The final and most important mode of operation is engaged when the indicators are activated. When the indicator is sensed as on within the headlight, the controller will override all previous modes and switch the two outer rings to 50% while the inner ring is switched off so that the indicator can be easily seen. Regardless of what mode the DRLs are in, when the indicator is active this mode overrides it for safety.
If the units are not operating like this either the power is not getting to the IN's on the boards so it cannot sense the operation or the controller is faulty. Either way, if you bolted the units under the headlights its a bumper off job to fix!!! This is why we have advised numerous times on this thread to not locate the controllers under the headlights any more but instead to put them in a location accessible from under the bonnet.
You can test operation visually first and then by using a multimeter on the boards to see if they are getting voltage from the feeds in the headlights. I can ship you a replacement controller ahead of time if you think you need to take the bumper off so that you can just swap the part in one go and send one back if its faulty or not. What colour are your boards, green or black?
You sure she used both indicators while you were watching?
As for the dim, was that on changing to driving lights from side lights? double check on your drive then email me.
not as clever as I think when it comes to moding myself ,but coxy kindly came to my rescue and wired my lights to controllers for me and I then tested halos which worked fine. However couldn't test lights on bench.
Don't now how I could test indicators without fitting to car first?
I should have checked all was well before putting bumper back on. DOH.
The left side lamp operates correctly dimming outer rigs and switches off centre ring.but right hand side all halos stay illuminated when indicating.
So its poss wiring to controller or the board itself?
I had the version 2 with green boards. I would be very grateful if you could supply another controller and ill swop it to see if faulty.
Thank you for your help once again.
