Light module

The light module controls and monitors the vehicle lights. Information is received and sent via the data bus K-CAN SYSTEM.

Emergency operation properties of the light module: The light module is supplied with terminal 30 twice.

If a terminal 30 fails, the following are activated:

* Front lighting: low beam and parking light (each on one side).
* Rear lighting: On one side, the outer sidelights/brake lights are activated. On the other side, the inner taillights are activated. The vehicle thus still has lights on both sides. Confusion with a one-track vehicle (motorcycle) is excluded.
* Brake light: One side of the brake lights is activated with normal power (ECE coding). This leads to ”one-track” braking, as if for example one brake light had failed.

In the case of a failure of the processor, emergency operating mode is activated. Emergency operating mode involves hardware that is completely independent of the light module. Emergency operation properties with failure of the processor:

* Vehicle lighting: At terminal 15 On, the following are switched on: Front low beam and outer rear sidelight/ brake lights left and right. The outer sidelights / brake lights left and right are not, as would be normal, dimmed to 10% of their brightness, but operated with full power. This ensures the function of the vehicle lighting irrespective of the position of the light switch.
* Brake light: With terminal 15 On, the left and right brake lights are switched on when the brake-light switch is operated (via a hard-wired, direct line from the brake-light switch to the lamp drivers).

Function defects with failure of the processor:

* No turn indicators and hazard warning lights, no high beam, no headlight flasher, no fog lights, no rear fog light, no third brake light
* No communication across the K-CAN SYSTEM.
* No communication with the trailer module

Probably means you prob need a new Light Module. :(

I assume the rest of the steering coulumn works ....if not check the Fuse in the Glove Box.

Thanks, I was afraid of that. My indy shop says they can fix it but it is expensive and may not be covered by my extended warranty. thank Freak

Tech Freak, I had a used lcm installed with no change to the above conditions. I was told that it needed to be programmed. I was then told that you could not program a used lcm for a different car.

Any insight? Thx.

Hoping to revive an old thread! I have exactly these issues, the LMA unit died when I tried writing the FA (vehicle order) code with NCS Expert.

As yet I have been unsuccesful in trying to restore its functionality.

Has anyone succeeded?

TechFreak, where did you get the information regarding failure of the processor and these symptoms?

Thanks,

Stuart
