      Fogs as DRLs worked for me too.
      Parking-, tail- and licence plate lights are lit as well.
      The coding was done on a MY'10 Seat Altea (5P), car equipped with euroswitch of course.
      For me the perfect case would be low beam or fogs as DRLs and no other light lit up but I don't see this happening.

      Thanks for the update. I found a scan from your vehicle here and I think the lighting behavior is due to the Byte 18 coding. I am not suggesting messing with it, just my theory.

      Dana,
      Here's a new challenge for you. It seems to replace the RCD510 with the RNS510 involves disconnecting (by lowering the headliner - ouch!) the compass module from the MFD.
      Surely VAG-COM could handle this via programming rather than getting into disconnecting "wires".
      Any ideas?
      Chris

      Very unlikely. You can code modules out but if they are plugged in, they talk.
      Loosening the headliner and "C" pillars isn't too bad.

      I'm not sure, I can check at some point, but I'm pretty sure that the value at Byte 18 is the default one.
      You mean that changing Byte 18 would not allow us to recode fogs as DRLs or that's why parking-, tail - and licence plate lights are lit as well?
      Pls have in mind that although my car has the same central electronic module as the MK6 Golf (1K0937086C) because it doesn't psysically have seperate lights for the DRLs (unlike the Golfs) when I recode it to "DRL with seperate light" nothing happens. That's why I coded it to "DRL with Low Beam" and now "DRL with fogs".
      Really looking forward to next tweaks

      Dimitris,
      I coded my module with your Byte 18 value and duplicated the same results. I had several rear lamp faults, but the Parking, Tails, and Fogs were all on as described. I am NOT suggesting modifying that on your vehicle but I'm pretty confident that this is the nature of the beast. I don't think we have a work around.

      Dana thanks for your reply.
      Nevertheless I've read in other forums that there have been some mishaps to people messing with Byte 18.
      I've also read that you can code CH/LH with the fogs (Byte 17, bit 3). Wanna give this a try ? I don't know for sure if this works with a specific combination of other Bytes/bits.
      Pls have a look at this: http://www.seatforum.de/forum/...age=2
      Sebastian can help you with his german.

      The module is actually only attached using Velcro to the underside of the roof. I was able to remove the rear trim only and reach inside the headliner and pull it far enough out to release the plug. I then just put it back in (disconnected) for safekeeping

      Thanks Chad. Great information. Is your car a four or two door model? This apparently can make some difference in the location of the unit.

      Didn't consider that.. It's a 2 door.

      I was afraid you were going to say that. Snooping around other forums, it seems no one has yet to actually successfully deal with issue on a four door. They're all just accepting the shortcomings it seems. (MFD and Nav instructions don't align.)
      Has anyone successfully dealt with this on a four door yet?

      I still have the trim removed (the tail light episode, long story) on the 4 door. I'll take a look for this module and report back.
      Edit:
      It is on the roof, just to the left (driver side) of the antenna nut. 5N0 919 879 on the label.

      NAR Golf / Gti LED Tail Light retrofit:
      In progress...Update, Lights are in and fully functional without any faults stored. The LR fog is finally working! I'm working on the DIY.

      will this work for the 2010 jetta sedan too? i know the lights are different, but will coding and wiring for the rear fog be the same?

      On the four-door, the module is just left of center, under the shark-fin. You will need two hands to unplug it.
      Steps:
      Open the hatch
      Remove the plastic trim over the head-liner, under the shark-fin.
      Pull down slightly on the headliner and you will see the module--a flashlight may be necessary.
      To unplug, you will need to release the plug and "rock-it" to slide the plug off.
      We left everything in place and snapped the trim back into place.

      No, it looks like the wiring and coding are different. We are currently working with someone that working on the LED Jetta retrofit and will update this post when it is finished. http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=4843160

      Chad, I have to leave it unplugged?
      I plan to switch to RNS-510 from RCD-510 this weekend.
      Do you have the VAGCOM coding for RNS510? I have MKVI GTI 4 door.

      The reason I want to buy a VAG-COM is to be able to do the EU LED conversion. Why do I have to be a customer already to find out what the procedure is to do it?

      Greg, the coding varies depending on the vehicle configuration. Once you have it installed and the Gateway coding finished go to 37 - Navigation and 07 - Coding. Open the Long Coding Helper and configure the coding. You will have selections for with or without sound system, etc..
      If you aren't sure about it, run a complete Auto-Scan prior to any work and save it. Run one after the retrofit is finished and post the scan data in a new thread. Someone should be able to help with the coding.

      Hello Dana,
      So I'm expecting my OEM LED taillights (no fog, so two rear backup lights) to be shipped by ECS this week which means installation next week! I have all the harnesses but need the coding. I know you're still working on your DIY but I wanted to make sure that there are no differences if you have no rear fog.
      Thanks!
