I had to use the GTI cable despite not having a GTI. If I used the other one, the button on the steering column wouldn't work.Yes, I can try. With no pictures. As it’s freezing -5 and I’m almost on the edge too total the car... (will adjust post with pictures).
Problem 1 : electric latch keeps making beeps.
So when switching on the contact/ignition of the car, the electric latch in the boot starts working (moving and making beeps), this happens everytime I switch the ignitionbutton from OFF to the ON.
It seems like Fuse 38 has no always power +12V?
problem 2: different plugs of the tailgate kit
(there were also 2 plugs in the kit which looked the identical,
-one labeled (gti) and the other one
had no label
i used the gti one (i have read there are some differences regarding the 17+ GTI mk7 but the plugs looked the same) -> will change this plug.
Problem 3: electric latch hinch
The hook/hinch broke off which holds the boot tight in place by pulling it firmly (see prior post picture), its just about a 2mm differences which is seen between the boottailgate light and the fixed tailgate light, but because there is still some play, i need to press the hatch manually for those 2mm. -> Will reorder this item.
If something has broken then I'd imagine that's why it's being problematic.
