Rear Light EU - CS

 

Almost every car what runs in US have a brake light / indicator combination. Two lamps works as brake light and as indicator as well. This makes a conversion of an imported vehicle according to the requirements in the EU a bit tricky and cost intensive due to some additional wiring and workshop time.

 

The Rear Light EU-C is a blinker splitter what converts the two signals from the original flasher / brake light combination and the center brake light ( what every US car have implemented since 1986 ) in four separate outputs for brake light / rear light and indicators. 7 integrated led´s allow a quick test while the installation. The 4 power outputs are short circuit protected. A conversion of an US car according to the requirements in the EU is much easier and less cost intensive with this new module.

 

Two cables to the body control module (BCM) module for the measurement of correct working rear indicators (Lamp failure override) are implemented and can be used for almost all cars what have 2 sensor inputs for the check of the correct functions of the rear direction indicators. Just leave the return cables unconnected if your car have "traditional" light bulbs.

 

 

Rear light EU-C

 

You might need to wire resistors from the indicator inputs to ground if you have a car with traditional light bulbs. These resistors let the BCM module "think", that the light bulbs are ok due to the burned power in the resistors. The BCM module will increase the flasher frequency to the indicators or to the dashboard indicator led without the resistors and show you that the bulb is defect. However, the BCM module doesn´t know it better in this case ;-) . The most bulbs have 21 Watt, what result in a resistor value of 6,8 Ohm what you can use. Many car BCM accept also 8,2 Ohm or 10 Ohm resistors what produce a bit less heat. Please take care that the resistor can handle a least 25 Watt power.

 

Some models switch on the brake light and the indicators at different times when you brake or release  the brake. We have implemented an 120 ms switch delay in the module what prevent the indicators against a short flash when you brake. Other modules on the market indicate the emergency flashers for a short moment when you brake. However, a very few car models have higher delays. Just feel free to send us a cellphone video from the delay in this case of the 3 inputs and we can change the software in the Rear Light EU-CS in order that it work for your model.

 

This module is also available from Cartown.se, the US-car specialist for the conversion to the European standard.
