Trial and error is sometimes the only way!

i do have the euroswitch but haven't hooked up the rear fog. i know it is something that i can do, but i just didn't bother as i really don't think i'd ever use it anyway.

how it was before was when i turn on my car, the lights would go through that cycling thing flashing here and there, and then the bulb out error came on. the fog stayed off until i went into reverse and then both lights would come on (driver's red, passenger white led). after changing byte 18 to 22, 04, 15, and back to 22, the result was all the same: no more light cycling flash, only passenger side white led came on in reverse, and still a bulb out error. i tried swapping out the reverse led with an incandescent, but then it threw the error when i went into reverse.
this is where i just gave up, put the led's back in and just tried to ignore that bulb out light.

but after reading these posts, i'll try 1f later today and see if that helps.

thanks again guys.

Thanks, it is difficult to get a error free + bright reverse, if you don't have a soldered fog we have both - option on the drop down:
