      I'm glad this is working for people. In an earlier post, I included a link to a post I made at another site that is no longer valid. So let me re-create the post here, so that Google will index it.

      I decided to try setting Central Electronics (09), Byte 25, Bit 1 to on.



      Since you can't alter Bit 1 via the Long Code Helper, you need to add "2" to the value of Byte 25 in the long string. So for me, that meant changing in from "84" to "86". (After you make the change, bit 1 should now be set in the Binary window--- it's the blue-highlighted digit above)

      Bottom Line: It works! My LEDs no longer drop in brightness when switched from OFF to Parking.

      Enjoy.

      I'm loving this fix (as I said before)...but just as a side note, my LED's dim in parking position when I pull the ebrake.

      Totally fine, just throwing the notice out there. I'm just happy that my LED's stay full bright when in parking, and still dim when the full headlights are on.

      It looks like Byte 11, Bit 0 controls this. Turn that bit off by subtracting "1" from the value of Byte 11. That should keep your LED DRLs bright while the parking brake is set. (It worked for me, but I reverted this particular tweak since I don't care for it).

      Thanks for the info. I maaaay just leave it as is, as I don't mind it dimming when I park.

      Hi guys. I added two tweaks here:

      http://wiki.ross-tech.com/wiki/index...K/52%29_Tweaks

      * LED DRL Dimming for Xenon equipped vehicles with factory LED DRLs
      * Remote operation when engine is running

      The LED DRL simply points to Tim's post above but I'd like to search around in the forums before adding that to the A3/TT/R8 Wiki page. If we are 100% that the 8P0 BCMs behave the same way WITHOUT touching Byte 18 I believe that wold be a great one to confirm and add.

      The remote tweak should apply to any KESSY with Golf based BCM system but I was reluctant to add that because it allowed me to lose one of the 2012 Tiggy keys.. which was found locked in the car much later. I'll add that to the other Wiki tweaks pages at some point but I know the Mk6 guys had that figured out before I had the Tiguan.

      Enjoy.
      Today I tried to do something similar on my 2012 Golf-R.
      I tried this today, but the "lcode2" brings nothing up.

      Should be noted that I have stock light switch, not the Euro one.

      Anyway I changed byte25 from 84 to 86, I can see no change (not that I was expecting to), but was hoping that would bring up some option for byte 11 so that I could uncheck bit 0. But bit 0 is not visible, at least as a option that I can tick. Or maybe this bit 1 is meant to appear on the byte 25 screen, but when I change is from 84 to 86 bit 1 does not appear still, I'm wondering why not ?

      Here is my byte 25 with 84:




      Here is my byte 25 with 86:



      And here is byte 11: (looks the same when I change byte25 to 86 or my default 84.


      Question is can this binary number be changed in byte11 ? And if so what should it be changed to ? Or is it as simple as changing "C1" to something else ?

      Basically I would just like to have my front DRL LED's stay on when my handbrake is up.

      Any help would be appreciated.

      I have rear LED's tailights BTW, non-fog.

      As an update...

      Later this evening I took a look at it again...

      Ah got it !!!

      For sure on on software "lcode2" is not showing up anywhere on the desktop. But keeping byte25 at 84, I just worked on byte11.

      I changed "C1" to "C0" and that worked... Success, now I have my LED DRL's working with the parking/e-brake/handbrake engaged.

      No need for Euro switch in this case.

      Version of software I'm running...


      byte 11: my default of "C1"


      Just changed "C1" to "C0"


      And accepted:

      List wouldn't fit here.

      Now that we have the LED's at full bright with the parking lights on/handbrake up, is there any way we can keep the LED's full bright with the low beams on? Not especially useful with GTI's or GLI's, where the LED's are in the headlights, but for Golf R, it would be good.

      I actually would like to do the opposite, I wanna disable the LED DRLs when the headlights are on but have yet to find the bit that controls it. Anyone?

      I have a 2012 Golf TDI with factory xenons and LED DRLs and this did not work for for me. I changed byte 25 from 84 to 86, but bit 1 never appeared. Has anyone been able to successfully disable DRL dimming with parking/city lights on a mk6 TDI w/ xenons and LED DRLs? This should be an easy one...very frustrating. Thanks in advance!

      Can you post your long code string for Central Electronics? I want to confirm that Byte 25 is actually set to 86 now. If it is then bit 1 is set (see it circled in the screenshot below?)

      Here it is...


      Here is a complete auto-scan I just did. There is a fault in Cent. Elect. for the euro switch, but I don't know if that if causing this not to work. Not sure how to clear the switch fault. I'm definitely a VCDS noob!

      Well, the good news is your Byte 25 coding is correct for "bright" LED DRLs.

      Did you double-check the trigger wire you ran for your Euro switch to enable Parking Lights Only? Maybe it's connected to a wrong pin? That could cause a fault.

      I tried it again and it seemed to work this time. The only thing I did differently is ran another auto-scan before trying, and this time I selected my vehicle from the list instead of letting VCDS figure it out automatically. That may have been the issue. I don't think my repair wire is an issue, since the fogs are working perfectly via the euro switch. Thanks!

      if you get the Light and Rain Sensor installed, then you can activate the option of only turn on the DRLs when LRS is activated. that will make your DRLs turned off when headlights are on. hope this helps. it works on my car.

      Am I the only one who can't get it to work? It accepts the code, but they still dim. I wonder if it is because I didn't update my CECM. Everything else works fine, they dim when turn signal is on and are at the correct brightness as DRLsv

      i'm reviving this!!

      has anyone figured out how to stop them from dimming in parking position when fogs are pulled on??? or even when headlights are turned on???


      I've looked everywhere and read every post. I've looked and searched everywhere else. I even found some info in an A3 forum but their VAGCOM instructions didn't match for my '16 GLI SEL.

      I have a theory though... I've found that if I put my euro switch in the parking position (fogs off still) and turn my drl's off and on from my MFI, they dim when I turn them off, then go full brightness when I turn it on, and back and forth...
      This leads me to speculate that the led drl's have 3 modes, just plain off, "drl" on (full brightness) and "drl" off (half bright) which makes sense cause you don't need drl's when fogs or headlights are on, meaning the led's turn into regular lights.

      Someone needs to experiment with this please!!!
