    Guys, my steering wheel has a unique problem.

    I had to screw (again) my optical encoder. Unfortunately, I accidentally snapped one of the cables while doing it. Buying a new one would take 2 months (delivery time)
    This cable connects the 2 PCB boards (wheel & rotors)

    That single cable (the red one) has made my paddleshifts (and the other 6 buttons on the wheel) only work when the LEDs are activated. (lights on)

    So, is there any way to force those LEDs to always stay activated?
    I mostly play Assetto Corsa.
    If anyone knows how to do it, i'm extremely thankful.

    I'd try getting the pin out of the block and putting the wire back ... bit fiddly, but shouldn't take more than 20 minutes.

    ATM i'm looking for a fix within software, simply because I know it's possible to force those LEDs to always stay on.
    The thing is, I don't have the knowledge to do that (find the correct .txt file and edit it properly.

    So if anyone can do this for me, I don't mind sending a few bucks through PayPal.
