    During trying to diagnose a running fault with my car I found it worth noting the differences in dash warning lamp positions for UK (possibly other Euro's?) compared to US models, particularly with respect to bringing the Check lamps into use (in the UK we didn't have the required dash lamps fitted or mini loom/push buttons at our ECU's). I nocked up a quick diagram so just sharing for anyone who may find it of use.

    Having just checked for codes yesterday for my vehicle I found just code 4444 on one of the ECU's and 1444 on the other ECU. So a code that means 'there are no codes' from one ECU and a code thats means there's a warning lamp issue 'MIL' from the other ECU. For my car this is not too much of a suprise as I disconnected the battery a few weeks back for the purpose of clearing the codes to start a clean sheet.

    Back to subject, the bottom line looks like by re-allocating the seat belt bulbs as suggested results in you getting a MIL fault, no big deal just something to bear in mind for those who have made the bulb swap.

    I can't figure why I only got the MIL code from just one ECU and not the other, maybe the US active belts system is driven from one ECU only?
