      Ok, Dana, here a challenge:
      I'm annoyed at the instrument dimming feature which is designed to encourage you to turn on your lights when it's dark. It's always dark in my garage and I can't see anything but the orange needles.
      I happened to run into a website (Audi specific) which has an article regarding this feature and I'd like your take on it and whether we can get this on the MKVI:
      Website found here: http://oooo-a3.blogspot.com/search/label/VAG-COM

      The cluster coding is well documented with VCDS and every scan I've seen has the coding of xxxx00. This 17 module is the newer UDS protocol and not really comparable to any of the previous generations. You can try to alter Byte 2 but I suspect the coding will be rejected, out of range.
      Dana Marie

      Emergency Brake Warning active function
      This actually uses the 4 ways flashers, not a flashing of the brake lamps.

      I'm not exactly sure what this does. I activated it via the Long Code Helper, but I don't see any thing different. When I pull up the emergency brake, there is no difference, the flashers do not come on.
      I would appreciate it if someone could explain this feature a bit better.

      When you enable Emergency Brake Warning the car will flash front and rear flashers if it detects ABS engagement. i.e., emergency stop, slamming on the brakes etc.
      A lot of Euro cars do this for safety reasons so people behind you can see you came to a fast and abrupt stop.

      Ah, that would explain that when VW group cars are tested on "Top Gear" they always seem to have their flashers on in the corners!

      Is it possible to code my Golf VI GTi that the flashers in front of the car are always on, like i had on my Golf V ??
      By the Golf V you could set the flashers from low to bright in %.

      Dana,
      The tail lights were shipped off to Cali today
      Any suggestions on the coding? A UK forum user did the swap and changed the value of Byte 18 to 00100 (hex value 04) in Module 09 - Central Electronics.
      Is this all we have to do?

      What lights did you get, with or without rear fog? The wiring and coding varies based on the lights.

      That coding should be fine for a vehicle with a Rear Fog Light when the wiring is done at the same time.

      I have received feedback from a few vehicles that have done the Plug and Play (using TM Tuning adapters) and coding mod. with two reverse lights. They have been successful with the Byte 18 coding of: 00100000 OR Hex value of 20. Ross-Tech cannot be held responsible if anything happens to your module based on that suggestion.
      I've personally done this and surely the rear fog and the white reverse light do light up. In my case it results in a fault for the LR rev. light because it's a red LED. (And looks pretty foolish).
      I would recommend that one of you do this and update each other. If it’s a FAIL, both of you don't want the same problem

      Still need to do a scan of mine, but are you saying the rear fogs need wiring to work properly, what about just no rear fog at all?

      A quick summary of the rear fog retrofit requires:
      - LED lights with rear fog
      - Wiring adapters at the rear lights
      - Rear fog light headlight switch
      - Wiring from the switch to the module
      - Wiring the module so the proper voltage feed actually goes to the rear light
      - Coding the module
      If you are a registered customer and interested in this, Please send an Auto-Scan and the part numbers of the lights and switch to us via email.
      The non rear fog setup is simple: Lights, Wiring adapters and Coding. Pretty much plug and play.

      Thanks for the tips, can a rear fog setup be made to work with just one reverse light and no rear fog?

      Hi Ron,
      I have Forza Motorsport 3 and I have quite a few VW's in my garage
      Yes the NAR vehicles have 2 white reverse lights because they don't have a rear fog light. If I'm not mistaken, Don't you need a rear fog light in the Netherlands?

      yes, you must have an rear fog light in Holland, but in 20 years i don't remember ever using it........
      is it possible by coding or do i need to re-wire things?

      Based on my retrofit I would expect a wiring mod at the 09 module and a coding change. You can try to code Byte 18 to: 20 and see what happens, but realize this is at your own risk.
      Let us know if you try this.

      any chance I can use my vag com to enable video playback whilest driving in my '10 Golf TDI RNS510 Navi?

      I know they have plug and play modules, however I just read somewhere that they block the speed data and the navi just thinks you are standing still, which would seem to me a waste of NAVIGATION. I get lost pretty easily so I need the full function of my navi, however it would be nice to play cartoons for my son on the way to school/work and on long road trips.

      Vince: you go first!

      Good to see you again. I got mine too, but not installing them until Saturday, Sunday. Maybe this will be sorted out by then.

      Maybe I should just order the damn coding box from TMT and we can do a before & after scan to see what the differences are. This should be easier.

      Thanks,

      I replied with some additional suggestions. Let me know how this works out!
