If that connector had little Y on center, it's same. I've just unplug it ja plug back again, and push it to bottom far as i can. Mine problem was that Instrument cluster does'nt show anything. So that connector has connection to Instrument cluster and ignition control.

Yh. If you don't I think your airbags can have issues as the airbag system is attached. Disconnect battery or you may set off the airbags.

Good. The starting issue may be a result of the various modules setting up. Won't you need to do some work with the ignition megado?

So you change loom right? Did you notice are xenon module wires mixed randomly on harness?

The xenon loom bit comes from all over the place. You have some which go to the blue connector and some which go directly to the outside with the Y connector you mentioned. That's why I choose just to change the loom. Harder to get in but overall way better way or doing it instead of pinning wires etc.

I think the ones that go directly out are for the leveling sensors. Then the blue connector just carry the configuration info. And the light switch. Don't get me wrong changing the loom is a lot of work.

Yh dismantle the centre console screws near the back. Then take everything you can off the steering wheel and the dashboard itself. Side kick panels a pillars. Glove box, panels . Then there are screws all at the bottom the top bit off dash is covered by clips just pull.

I seem to have made the issue worse. I messed with that connector and the airbag light is on now. Going to have to keep messing with it.
