Damn, just realized that pic is huuuuuuge and showing up so much filth, apoligies....

It's currently in for a service, I'll check once I get it back.. Almost certain it was a green wire with white stripe on the passenger sideon the big plug closest to the engine..

Unplug it and hit the pin in the plug with a test light, high beams on and off is easy to confirm it's the right one, it's the only wire in the whole loom which has the high beam trigger..

Apologies again for large pics, not sure how to shrink them on my phone...

As mentioned earlier, it's the green wire with white stripe.

Will get output shots tonight..

The lightbar I used is linked below, it's about half an LED too long at each end, so I just blanked the two end ones off with some good quality airframe tape I had in the cupboard.

This lightbar also mounts perfectly to the front reo beam behind tge bumper with no drilling required at all. It literally bolts straight up and sits at the perfect height for the slot in the bumper.

Don't muck up the lunar eclipse for the rest of us now.

If the moon goes from red to white again all of a sudden we'll know who is responsible.

Cheers. I had a smaller Stedi light bar on my old car and for the price they can’t be beaten.

Yeah, that would definitely be the only interesting thing to take photographs of while you're at the Bathurst 12 hour.


[Put up a thread of cool race car pics when you get back please!]

Hey guys,
So just in case anyone else on here needs a solution to this...

You need a canbus interface to give you a highbean trigger.
This is where to get it - http://www.canm8.com/canm8-highbeam.html

If you’ve got a 2018 xt premium, then you’ll need to talk to George as it needs the latest firmware which was made made off my car.

Then you can’t connect to the CANbus interface through the obd2 port as theres a firewall restricting data. So the easiest place to access the can is behind the cluster - blue and red wire.

All the rest is pretty straight forward.
Hope this helps someone!

Cheers
Josh
