The stock lights switch is fully valid. and the anti-fog works. :lol:
Would like to know what model that video is from. Atleast on my 2016 K the stock light switch does not turn to left (counter-clockwise) at all and did not turn off the auto headlights. Though mine has regular lights, not leds, so might be different..

My car is 19.5, but i modified the light switch for enable the "0" position. The electrical board from the light switch have the "0" position, but its limited for no turn to the "0" position.

disassembly the light switch completly, remove the brown piece and cut here. (see the picture)
the cut must be clean to enable the "0"

This small piece of plastic, limits the turn to the 0 position.


Now you can disable the auto lights, but the day line (position) are always ON (rear lights off!)

Sorry, my english is very bad. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Work OK yes, but the colour its red.

My car is GSI Line, no front anti fogs, and with the zafira light switch can enable the front fog light and the instrument shows the front anti-fog turned on.

The best way, cut the brown plastic.
