np249 to np242 swap no part time light

I swapped out my np249 for a np242. It was a direct swap no ds changes. Bolted right up. My problem now is the part time light doesn't
light. Instead lo lights up. All other lights are correct.

What year ZJ do you have, and what was the build date on your 242?

Did you need to plug in any electrical connections so the VIC would work correctly?

when you swap, for the VIC lights to work correctly, you need to go behind the VIC, and find the 2 red connectors and the 2 black connectors. the red ones should be plugged together. unplug them, and plug the black ones together. should work right now, unless your 242 did not come out of a ZJ.
