lci tail

hello, I was thinking of changing my tail lights to lci.
And I got a couple of questions.

I know I need coding for it, and rearrange the harness on the trunk lid lamps.
But does coding stop the fast flashing of the blinkers? Or do I need to put some resistors?

if so, is there anyway not to put resistors and make it kind of plug-n-play?

Thank you!! in advance.

thank you for the reply but this harness is for the coupe not the sedan.

I am trying to figure out if an resistor is needed for high speed blinker flashing or can I get away with coding?


anyone? please help!!

you can ask alexshop, tom at eas, or vs motorsports, I know they were able to get it to stop with coding but not 100 percent sure

Since this is a sedan, no harnesses are needed.

Coding will remove the BulbCheck requirement and get the blinker flashing back to normal, and remove the errors from the iDrive/Kombi. Contacting autologic @ 877.945.6442 or http://www.autologic.us will put you in contact with a shop in your area that can perform coding for you.

I do not recommend the use of resistors as this can cause damage to the FRM.
