W166 Rear Fog switch from left to right with Vediamo

I'm trying to enable the right foglight on a W166 ML350 2012 that I shipped from the USA to the UK.

WIS shows the wire on pin3 switching from left inner tail light to right inner tail light for RH fog light.

I already switched the wire but light still does not come on, I think its disabled in the SAM

I tried switching around the following values in the CBC file in vediamo, still no fog light.

Fragments Values
PLSM_HW_NSL_li freigegeben
PLSM_HW_NSL_re nicht freigegeben


contents of my SAM coding file are posted at this URL

would love any pointers to help solve this.

Am happy to pay if someone can do it via teamviewer.

SOLVED

I was so engrossed making sure the wiring was correct, checking voltage etc, I did not think to check the light itself

The right light is actually missing the required LED's (mercedes decided to save a few pennies). Will order a UK replacement

I converted a USA cars whole lighting system to EU about a year ago. You'll find the wiring is missing and Vediamo should be ignored for the rear-fog-light. You'll need to change the rear light (as you've noticed) and cut / run a wire across the boot to the other side.

I suspect you could run a wire from the SAM to the rear foglight and then use vediamo to switch it over ...
