Your posted old coding was wrong.

I have below attached the old (OEM) and the new coding from Bulb => FL LEDs

There is something strange ...

I have the same coding you propose in channels 200 (73) and 201 (105) ... it is supposed to be fog lights, but Fog lights do not work in this car ...

I ask as my current values are different to the left table being a facelift, can I still use the right values?

From your posted coding, the current one are Blub values, so yes you should be able to use the Bulb => FL LED codings.

Below I have added the difference between old OEM LED and FL LED.

Thanks rlarsen, gave it a go tonight and mostly successful :thumbs:
Only small issue is I get bulb warning for both fog lights, channels 200 and 201 have the correct values of 73 and 105 but channels 182, 184, 186 and 190 would not accept the new values, not sure if it’s connected to the problem though,
Thanks again

You don't have to change Channel 182, 184, 186 and 190 - so leave them be your current value. - they are not part of the coding directly.

About the bulb out on the fog lights - try change Channel 181 and/or 191 to 65391 - otherwise have a look at the table below, and change the part of the value so it works.

I’m probably missing something here but seeing as the fl LED lights are all LED bar the revering lights, shouldn’t the ch181 table be mostly 0’s?

Sure - but I don't think all of the lights are LEDs - aren't the fog and reverse still bulbs ??

But if 0 works - then it works :)

Reverse lights definitely incandescent as replaceable, unsure of the rest, others quite possibly, even if unaccessible👍🏻
