What connector is that? That does not look like a headlamp connector - can you show a picture of what it was plugged into?

Sorry for picking up pick this thread but anyone knows what happens if the connector is not plugged in?
I live in Sweden and I just bought a pair of LED headlights from US and the right headlight does not have the connector for self leveling, but the left one does. Does the headlights even have a motor inside? I never seen my light image moving, just the "adaptive" light that are lit up when moving the steering wheel.

Did you eventually find a solution for this, I’m having the same challenge...?

IGNORE my previous post!

So....this is doing my head in. This morning I tested each wire on the left headlamp (refresh/face lift with LED lights). There are 9 wires in the harness/plug but only 6 pins in the socket (see photos attached). The only thing I figured out was the turn signal. I can't work out the DRL, headlamp, or high beam. None of these voltages changed with with the high beam. I didn't test voltages on the right as I was staring to get a little frustrated and decided it would be better to ask for help than compromise any more wire insulation.

For the LEFT side:
1 - Red/White..........+7.8V
2 - Purple/White......+11.1V to +12.1V (when car powered up)
3 - Red/Pink............0
4 - Grey...................+12V turn signal
5 - Red....................0
6 - Red/Black...........+12V (?switched)
7 - Brown.................+12V constant
8 - Black...................Earth
9 - Black...................Earth

For the RIGHT side:
1 - Red/Pink
2- White/Black
3 - Blue/White
4 - Green
5 - Brown
6 - Red/Grey
7 - Purple
8 - Black
9 - Black

Any help/advice on how to find the high beam would be helpful.

This is the plug model number: DJ7141-1.5/3.5-21

Hello
I am very interesting did you find out what pins must be changed in headlight connector? Is it any success?

More specifically, we know that the >2016 headlights are controlled by the LIN bus. Has anyone, or _CAN_ someone with a >2016 car, sniff the LIN bus and post codes for:
Turning headlight on, off, dimming DRL, turning DRL off etc.?

I don't have access to a 2016 to sniff it myself. I have a project in mind.
Hi, Have you got the code?I have logged the data but it seems these data can't turn on the headlamp.
