      Is there any way to stop my ESP warning light when it is turned off (yeah, I know it's never fully turned off...)?

      Not that I'm aware of.

      How do you run the fogs as your DRL's for a MKVI Golf Wagon TDI?
      Thanks.

      Please start a new thread and post your complete AutoScan. This has been tested on HID vehicles, but not Halogen equipped HL systems. I can give you a suggestion based on the original coding.

      I replied to your email. Let me know if the DRL's moved to the Fog lights as expected.

      Changing the color scheme of the radio (Highline, Sportline, Premium) had no effect on the display color of the radio. Anybody successfully changed their (NA) display?

      Yes, you have to physically reset the unit to make the change. I BELIEVE you have to hold the eject, and < > buttons at the top of the unit to reset it. Hope this helps.

      So do you change it in VAGCom first, or just use the manual method?

      You can change the theme with VCDS. I don't think the RNS user interface has the option--mine does not.

      DRLs moved to fogs as expected. This change seemed to create a unintentional behavior with the door locks. Normally, removing the key from the ignition "unlocked" all doors, hatch & fuel door. That function is no longer active. Key removal has no affect. No other changes were made. I'd like the key function back though.

      Both of the Bits we changed were lighting only. The auto unlock can be configured 3 ways. -Long coding, -Adaptation, and via the dash and -MFA controls.
      My guess is that the adaptation value changed because Auto-Unlock was not enabled in the coding of the scan I have, pre-mod. Check the MFA settings and let me know if it’s off. You can post the current long coding from 09 if this isn't resolved.

      My adaptation value explanation is...After unrelated coding changes, I lose my comfort windows...and have to re-enable it via adaptation channel 6, but this only happens half of the time. I suspect it's a module bug.

      Now if I could only get the City (parking) light under the xenon lamps to function as my DRL . . . .

      Good deal! I'll add the details to my first post for Xenon vehicles, "Fogs as DRL's". Looks like we need a Halogen vehicle to test this on.

      Dana,
      Do you know if there is a way to turn off the requirement to hold the brake pedal down when starting a Mk 6 GTI?
      I purchased a Mk 6 GTI and a 2010 JSW TDI for my wife. The JSW does not require the brake pedal to be pressed and and I find it very annoying to have to do this with the GTI. So, hoping there is a way to turn this off.
      BTW, both cars have DSG.
      Thanks!

      I wish we could figure this out as well.
      For the RNS themes, there is the stock red one, a green one, and a black version with red accents that I have mine set to.

      Not that I'm aware of. I personally don't like it either. I can understand the safety concern with a manual and the clutch pedal...but the Auto. trans when it is clearly in Park?
      Comparing the Jetta Tdi and the Gti might not lead me anywhere but send auto scans of both vehicles so I can compare the modules and coding. http://www.ross-tech.com/contact.html

      That's odd. My TDI DSG does not have this quirk. Starts right up with a turn of the key.

      Dana, I don't know if this helps, but I just ran down to the parking lot to confirm, but my Canadian spec MkVI GTI with DSG, does not require me to have the brake depressed to engage the starter.
      I've sent you my scan previously, and now knowing this, perhaps a comparison of my scan to Desmo_Pilot's would reveal something helpful?

      Dana,
      I hear folks all over the forums mentioning this and that little VAG-COM trick. No specific details, just mostly "I did this".
      With that said, there seems to be a growing number of things possible that I don't find in your initial list on this thread or in the thread generally.
      Since I was expecting this to be the "be all, end all" location for coding tweaks, will you be updating and maintaining this list?
      I hate asking folks for their guidance, when this forum should have the answers. Is this a reasonable expectation?
      Thanks!

      sorry if this has been covered somewhere before, saw it only fleetingly on another post:
      so the parking/city lights CANNOT be activated as the only DRLs operating unless some wiring is done?
