    Does anyone know if the above vehicle has a "Can-bus " electrical system, has i want to fit some "daytime driving lights" and fit them to the front side light connections,as they are not very bright anyway ?

    It's unlikely it will have CANBUS any further than the engine management systems, if at all.

    The sidelights being dim can be for various reasons - blackened bulbs the most obvious.
    Check the voltage at the bulb holder, first across the 2 bulb terminals and if voltage is low (10/11v ish)...
    then check between bulb feed terminal and bat earth - if now good voltage, bulb earth is bad...
    Then bulb earth terminal and pos+ on battery - if now good voltage, bulb supply is bad.

    If voltage supply is good and bulbs clear then you seee what wattage the bulb is and see if this can be upgraded.

    Not CANBUS.

    But it does have a fair amount of electronics. And a shed load of fuses.

    a lot easier just to turn on your dipped headlamps. Volvo style.:thumb:
    no drilling for lamps, no wiring and no switch to isolate the driving lamps.
