You will learn and you can share your new found knowledge with all of us. Remember its just a machine if you screw up you can fix it and learn.
      When you got your taillights from ECS Tuning did you just have to plug them in or did you have to do any re-wiring to make them blink AMBER? I was thinking about just plugging them in without the ECS wiring harness to see what I did..but I went ahead and used the wiring harness for Passat Mode but im just getting that error message on my screen..I might as well go amber huh..

      Hello:
      The ECS Led Tails are not plug and play to get them to work properly. What i did was re pin the rear light plugs and repin the 2 plugs under the dash and add on rear fog light wire to the
      cecm next was to recode byte 18 of the central electronics unit. It took me almost 6 months with the help of Dana, this forum and luck to accomplish this. I have damaged 1 or 2 electrical connectors but replaced them and learned. So when are you going to start?

      Follow the wiring mod for "Amber Tails" its easy to do, use staples from a staple gun to get the pins out of the connector. The colors on the 2010 wires are different but the moves are the same. Then recode byte 18 as Bigshaft suggests.

      BTW I still have a bulb out message, have not figured out how to turn off the cold diagnostics on the 2010 cars.

      You need to do swap at the tails for sure just like the DIY for the mkV jetta write up, now if have rear fog too then yes you need to do the wire swap at the CECM found in the DIY for the mkVI. Then you need to change the coding for the car with VCDS

      So if I don't want a rear fog light I only have to rewire the taillights. I just want to make sure..where can I get the coding I need for amber? I do have a VAG-COM

      Correct if your tails do not have rear fog you only have to re-wire at the tails, and I would contact dana at ross-tech.

      I received and installed my set of Euro tail lights today. They are the dark cherry ones from ECS Tuning and I switched the pins around per the DIY writeup. Everything is working 100%, rear fog light and amber directionals with no "light out" faults to be seen!

      A little background:

      Hi-Line CECM module: 5K0937087CZ0X
      OEM Bi-Xenon
      OEM Fog's
      Rear Fog
      Euro LED Tails
      Euro Switch

      Byte 18 is: 0E

      My long coding is: 2D200B1E902F3EE48008008160008B0401000E86510085605C8020000040

      Not sure if mine works 100% because of the Hi-Line module upgrade but all is perfect and the Jetta is ultra fly now!

      Not that pics are necessary, but they just look so nice.

      Cherry Red Euro LED Tails (ECS/Hella) installed:

      Did you re-wire as follows:?? RIGHT SIDE (passenger) 1. Brown 2. Grey/Red 3.Green/Black 4.Purple/Black LEFT SIDE (Drivers) 1. Brown 2.Grey/Black 3. Purple/Black 4. Red/Black ??

      and for the coding to AMBER is it the coding above with the bold 0E? did you also disable the cold diagnostics? i dont have a rear fog light, would the coding still be the same as above? thanks for your help, I appreciate it!!

      Write up is done and I'll post it everywhere. It's kind of lacking in pictures though it is full of all the important information. I like to get the job done, lol. I may go back at some point and take it all apart and take some pics.

      I didn't pay attention to the colors because as per the Euro Amber LED writeup the 06-09 models used a different color scheme. I made all the same pin moves though:

      Drivers side: Swap pins 2 & 3
      Pass side: 4 moves to pin 3, 3 moves to pin 2 and 2 moves to pin 4.

      I have the drivers side reverse light wire (no rear fog) moved from A28 (at the CECM) to C47. The wire that was in C47 gets left out.

      Byte 18 to 0E (Premium RoW Golf, or something like that)

      My long coding has a lot of other things in it (bi-xenon, fogs, fogs as DRL and a bunch of other tweaks), so I don't recommend you guys using it.

      I want to add, that maybe mine are not 100% perfect. When powering on the car, they flicker all the lights by what seems to be a self test to verify everything is functioning. This may or may not be normal and may or may not cause damage...from what I understand.

      Yes and it was in the '10 Gti for some Byte 18 coding experimenting.

      I had some faults for rear lighting that didn't return with consistency, but I'll note the RR tail light fault was the most consistent. I did not move any wires with the LED Gti tails, and as you noted above, the additional RR wire swap may be needed to resolve that.

      I haven't burned up the 5K0 BCM yet, even with the Xenons plugged in, so I'll continue testing the Byte 18 coding and see what is...and is not similar to the Gti retrofit. In the meanwhile, I have a bunch of old and random pics here and I can photo your old BCM if you want to use the lack of front fog pins and such as example in the write up.

      It seems like I'm next in line to get my LED tails done w/ rear fog option of course Unfortunately there are back ordered so I'll have to wait another month before I can start playing with it.
      My long code is:

      None of the MKV LED Tails will come with LED Circuits in the Reverse Driving Light, or in the Rear Fog.

      You do have the freedom to experiment with this on your own, BUT, you are on your own in this regard.

      I think I need your help. I was trying to find info how to rewire switch/CECM for a rear fog light and I couldn't find anything Do you know where can I find this specific information about installing wire and repining connectors for Mk6?

      BTW I still have a bulb out message, have not figured out how to turn off the cold diagnostics on the 2010 cars.

      Are you still getting fault code?

      I didn't insert the C47 back into A28 (left it unused taped up), I have halogen headlights but that wire isn't used at the bulb.

      I used OEM Tails from MKSTuning, did rewiring on the tails.

      I didn't change the Byte 18 from "00" to anything else.

      I have no faults whatsoever, tails work with amber turns, You may want to give it a try.

      MY CECM is lowline 5K0-937-084-A on my 2010 Jetta TDI Sedan Highline Trim built 09/09
