    The French suppliers seem to have the best "faisceaux spťcifiques" but the buggers won't send overseas. If you remain stuck, I could ask a CitroŽn acquaintance in Charente, if he'd assist.

    Thanks Addo and Balki - seems like most cars (German, Ford, GM) are using multiplexing these days - that is why there is a market for a universal application.

    The issue with the "smart" relays is not massive, all that happens is you need to actively disable the reverse sensors when towing, and also the rear fogs - if they come on before the fronts may be used - won't be disabled.
