      On a North American-spec Jetta/GLI, each tail light (driver's and passenger's side) has two single-filament bulbs -- each of the bulbs illuminates half of the "circle." (By the way, even though...

      Yup, the re-wiring has to be done for the rear fog light.

      But there's some re-coding also, so the computer knows there's now a rear fog light on that side. To quote from the DIY:

      My wife's 2009 2.5 Jetta had a similar problem several years ago. The door locks (not all of them) would go a bit crazy, locking and unlocking by themselves.

      Glad it worked out. I still can't believe (though it happened to me too) that a reputable VW dealer would just shoot in the dark like this, insisting they know what they're doing.

      I'm also glad...

      Yes. Probably not intentionally, but yes.

      Not only would you have had to re-code the car for a rear fog light, but you would have had to install a trigger wire from the Euro switch to the fuse...

      It is annoying to have half or more of the posts in the main forum be blatant sales pitches, and it is getting worse.

      I can't help much specifically, but I can keep you from going in some wrong directions:

      And it only works with 2010 Mk5 Jettas, which have different electronics than the 2005-2009 models.

      VAG-COM is the only option for those of us with the earlier models.

      Wouldn't hurt to try there. I'd just let them know up-front why I'm posting there -- the fact that your 2010 Jetta looks like a Mk5, but has the electronics of a Mk6.

      The recall that I think owenmarshall is referring to is Service Action 97AM. But it only affected 2009 Jettas, and the symptom is that all the lights on the passenger side (only) stop working:
