      Hi,
      I was able to activate both rear fog lights for the CC .
      It works, everything is already pre wired.

      All you have to do is run a trigger wire (000 979 009)from the Euro light switch Pin 7 to the E connector of the J519 module PIN 13
      J519 (Central Electronics Module) is located where the OBD port is. Underneath the drivers side
      Then a minor Vag coding
      in the Central Electronics Module [09]
      Uncheck Bit 1 Byte 3 (to enable both rear fog lights)
      Check Bit 4 Byte 4 (To activate both rear fog lights)
      Uncheck Bit 6 Byte 4 (To activate rear fog lights)
      EDIT :
      To enable only the left rear fog light :
      use the following coding
      Check Bit 1 Byte 3
      Uncheck Bit 4 Byte 4
      Uncheck Bit 6 Byte 4
      Thank you crazywayne311 for the idea

      Lights switch ON

      Dash Board Rear fog light on

      Rear Fog lights OFF

      Rear Fog Lights ON

      you took all my glory
      i bought the euro switch and was supposed to get a trigger wire a while ago. but the vw dealership is 45min away. not to mention all my time has been focused on gettin my MK2 back on the road. (which she is back officially on the road)
      awesome deal! so everything we briefly discuss is correct. it was already there...just needed the damn trigger wire. shoulda taken mine out the GLI before i traded it!

      hey man...ok, so it says my last post was 1:14...so quite possibly 4:15 my time? ok, so the headlamp switch was pretty easy to take apart and installed the trigger wire. i dont know if i took the best path to run the wire but it made its way under the dash. now, on the MKV, none of the harnesses are labeled. the CC has them labeled! took apart that harnesses, installed the other end. zip tied where needed and did the vag coding...yeah, piece of cake! thanks bro!
      oh yeah, and i vacuumed the car out and ate some food. i think i did well on time

      it takes maybe 30 minutes tops and then vag com changes. that is if you know how to read the connectors and take them apart. i remember the first time i tried on the GLI and i was rather frustrated

      Looks great. I wish I had enough skill to do this. If I understand correctly most of the parts are already in the CC except for the light switch and a trigger wire (no idea what a trigger wire is).

      Just finished the whole euro switch install and rear fog activation....
      A few things to add to this for clarity and ease if you have never opened up the dash or connectors on a CC, like I had not.
      Remove your storage bin in the left knee panel. Open it, and there are two large plastic tabs in the top part of the dash inside the bin. Push them up and the bin will hinge down and you can pull it away. Makes running the trigger wire very easy.
      The connector plug that goes into the light switch... Snip off the factory wire tie on the end. Then use a tiny flat head to open the clip on the side, give the shell a twist and it will slide apart. Pay attention when inserting the wire into the plug so that the spring side of the pin faces the holes on the connector side. Snap the shell back on, put on a new wire tie and run the trigger wire down toward the ECU. Use a couple of zip ties to secure it in place. Plug the light switch back in.
      Connector on the ECU module is E as noted. Both E and F are the same physical connector. You wil see a red bar running the length of the module between all the plugs and it will say "Auf" with an arrow pointing to the passenger side. Slide that puppy in the direction of the arrow to remove plug E. Once the plug is out, you will see a tiny tab on the plug...put a tiny flat head into the tab, twist a bit and the plug housing slides out of the shell to reveal the pin out numbers and allow you to insert the trigger wire. There is only one pin 13 labled on the whole connector so you can't eff that up. Pay attention to how you insert it so the spring side of the wire pinfaces out the holes on the side of the connector. Pop the plug bac in, slide the red bar to towards the driver side and tehn button up the dash panel.
      Follow the VAG Com instructions and the you are off and running with rear fogs. Whole process should take you like 45 minutes tops.

      I have a stupid question. I was planning on doing this today but missed the delivery of the cable for the vag com part that came today. If I do the wiring today, will there be any problems with the lighting if I wait till Monday to do the vag com changes?

      I dont think you'll have any lighting issues with the trigger wire and switch there and no vag codding.

      EDIT: Wow I am a massive idiot, I didnt pull it out one more notch for the rears. Everything is working great! Thanks for the tips, they really helped.
      Also got my clear turns on, so I'm happy
