  • Retro fit auto headlights

    Hi,
    Does anyone know how the standard auto headlight switch works?
    I am hoping that when the switch is turned to auto it send a positive current through one of the terminals at the back.
    If it does I could then use this positive to control an aftermarket headlight controller like this one .

    Can someone advise me if this is feasible?

    Thanks

    You need to make sure it is canbus compatible, as this is the wiring system in the Astra.

      it would be far easier to just add the sensor, change the lighting control knob and a bit of wiring that faffing with that

        That would be the ideal solution as it would be more standard looking but I thought it would be a lot harder to do it that way round.
        Is all the wiring already in the car for it? does it need some kind of control box fitted as well?
        Finally any idea of cost??

        Thanks

          needs the rain sensor, a loom making up and a new light control knob.

          oh and a new windscreen if you want it OEM style

            Not much of a loom either really, 12v and earth found in the map light cluster and a signal cable to the uec and sorted.
