    Side lights coming on

    I can't figure this one out. When van sat on the drive way locked, the side lights just turn on for 15-20 seconds. I have been out and doors are locked but I don't see anything else as I not quick enough to get out to it. Its only happened twice that I know of. Very strange.

    Aftermarket DRLs and the switch

    Quick question : my T6 highline has these aftermarket sequential led DRL headlights fitted and I’m not sure they’re wired in correctly.
