If you are planning to use the Honda wiring kit,there are small plugs/sockets behind each of the boot side panels about level with the rear lights,as yet i've failed to find where the large plug goes.I rang Honda today and they say it's behind the r/h rear panel.I'll have a look next weekend.

I think it must be behind the upper panel that covers the airbag.We just need to find where the cables going to the hatch are connected.Anyone taken their hatch/boot lid off?

there is a grey plug behind the upper cover. When i test it with a multi meter all the wires energise for various light functions apart from the indicators. nothing in that plug energises when the indicators are on.

Well done[smilie=happydance.: it looks like you found the one i'm after.
Is this the cover with airbag written on it?If it is,is it safe just to pull the upper cover off?I was wary of the airbag behind so i have'nt looked behind there.
The indicator plugs are behind the lower cover almost level with the indicators on the rear wings.
Is it too late to post a photo before you put the covers back?
Cheers

sorry ** i have already put the covers back on. but i have been on to Honda and have finaaly squeezed out of them that the genuine honda cable is a Y cable that just bridges off that connector so it still remains connected to its current moorings as well. I think the indicators dont show on my multimeter because there switched earth (i think) rather than i switched live. That therfore would require a separate live feed from. Hence you would need a digital signal processor box to use that connection, without buying the genuine one. Or so i think. You could always splice the cables where they connect directly to lights.
i think!

It's the genuine kit i have with no instrucions,it is a Y with 3 plugs and a box of tricks.
Is it ok to take the upper cover off or does the airbag need to be disabled?
Thanks for your help.
Cheers

it will be fine i took mine off it still doesnt expose the airbag i think that must be in the roof lining. anyway an airbag will only deploy with an electric charge from the control unit. so dont worry you should be fine.
