AUII BEM into EF?!

Its a long shot, but can i put an AU BEM inot an EF without sending it spastic?

Reason I ask is cos i want to get the 'lights on' feature that AUII's have - i.e. if you leave the lights on it will turn them off after a while, but the part im really after is that i want to be able to unlock the car using the remote and have the headlights come on at night.

AU2 uses a delay switch which is near the headlight switch to set the dealy - ranges from 30 to 90 seconds, and my thinking is that if i can get a hold of one of these switches, fit it in place of my EF lightswitch gear, and then put the BEM in, it should work.

However seeing as that's far too easy, what problems would arise from this? Only one i can think of us it would have to be an AU1 BEM because AU2 onwards has Smartshield instead of SmartLock, and possibly the panic button on the keyfob.

Any ideas?

Re: AUII BEM into EF?!

Just fit an aftermarket thing, or make your own, have it remote switch itself on when the interior lights come on, i.e: interior lights + headlights, and have them attached to the same fade relay as the interior lights also.. It should work without an AU BEM..

Re: AUII BEM into EF?!

Yeah, i'd use a timer + relay.
make it only work *if* the headlights are switched on.
(makes it switchable )

Re: AUII BEM into EF?!

Ok, so timer switch which controls headlights so they fade out with interior lights.

So I'd leave headlights turned on when locking the car. Have to then make a way of turning them off when locking the car (perhaps wire into smartlock to kill power or something?)

If ive got this right, id need to wire it so that Smartlock can activate the headlights?

Re: AUII BEM into EF?!

No. Connect a wire to the interior lights, which goes to a relay that will be remotely turned on when the interior lights come on, which in turn activates the headlights to come on for 30 seconds, etc.

You go to the car, press the remote pad, interior lights come on, which sends a signal to the relay (through a remote wire connected to the interior lights) which activates the headlights for a certain period of time. Nothing to do with smartlock..

Re: AUII BEM into EF?!

Just read the above replies, and yes, alternatively, you could turn the headlights on when locking the car, then find a way to make them turn off when you lock the car, and then turn back on when you open the car..

Re: AUII BEM into EF?!

you could always um.....turn your lights off when you leave your car, and um er turn em on when needed,


reminds me of a letter in an old wheels magazine

a lady wrote in and said that it would be so good if a car company came up with a way of making teh wipers come on when it starts raining. they replied with, they did years ago, a wiper switch
