If the LEDs have separate wires for white and yellow surely you just need to wire them to the reversing light harness (white) and indicator harness (yellow) each side.

 

I can’t see why any programming should be necessary.

 

The difficult problem is getting to the wiring and getting it to the hatch.

Good point but was trying not to have to run wires round to the hatch,i have seen someone has changed the reversing lights into indicators by obd 11 but cannot find how they done it now

mark: It ain't difficult to get reversing lights to also become turn signals. You just need to add the Blicken rechts/links Hellphase/Dunkelphase commands into the Leutche-sets.

 

But on your car this will just make the white lights illuminate for both the two functions. It won't make the white lights be reversing lights and the yellow lights be turn-signals

Can you send me the instructions to the setting for one reversing light side please so it flashes at the same time as the indicator

I certainly can - see below::

Left-side Reverse light

Leuchte28RFL LC11-Lichtfunktion B 28 >  Blinken links Hellphase

Leuchte28RFL LC11-Lichtfunktion C 28 > Blinken links Dunkelphase

Leuchte28RFL LC11-Dimming Direction CD 28 > minimize

 

Right-side Reverse light

Leuchte29RFL RA64-Lichtfunktion B 29 > Blinken rechts Hellphase

Leuchte29RFL RA64-Lichtfunktion C 29 > Blinken rechts Dunkelphase

Leuchte29RFL RA64-Dimming Direction CD 29 > minimize

 

You pick which side reversing light you want to flash (or, both sides)!

 

But, as I have already said - these changes will/should  simply make the reversing lights (white LEDs) flash - the tweak won't illuminate the yellow LEDs, which need to be connected to the turn-signal lamp wires.
