    Hi Don!

    I had a headlight question I was hoping you could give some insight on. I had my entire driver side headlight replaced, modules and all, and it was a non-vw body shop. They said i have to go to the dealership to get my headlights leveled because they couldn't which was no surprise to me. I take it to the dealership and they said they cant figure out whats wrong with the headlight, but i told them that the modules just need to be unlocked for use because its protected being brand new.

    As you can see in the picture the projector is tilted bottom right, and im getting no errors in vcds and it looks like the headlight is coded. I did notice some things had voltage in vcds and others did not in the new headlight. Is there anything i can do with vcds to perhaps fix this? Maybe i need a more competent dealer.

    Thank you in advance!

    Vijay: You should have an adaptation channel in the BCM called "ENG141645-MAS00214-HW_Verbau-Brake pad wear" - set this to "not installed".

    Hi Don,

    I have a MK7.5 GTI and recently changed my front brakes. I am trying to disable the brake pad wear sensor. I tried out the coding that was suggested via the Instruments and BCM and cant seem to find the option. Would you know where else i can look for this option?

    Also, was keen to hear your thoughts on how to code the front headlight indicator lights to have the "pace car" effect.

    Thank you.

    Hi DV52,

    I'm having trouble figuring out the new security code for adjusting the fuel gauge (apparently it's been changed since 2016 cars) and was wondering if you might be able to help me? (I was referred to you by Mk7User)

    So far I've tried:


    and none of them seem to work (except 25327 but then you get stuck in a loop). I have a 2017 GTI that I bought in mid december 2016.

    Thanks in advance!

    ryan: The latest version of my BCM spreadsheet can be downloaded from the link below (this is probably the last version because the new VCDS software reports adaptation channels in a different way, alas)

    I can't seem to find the spreadsheet with lighting channels... Do you have the file or a link?

    Hey. Me again. I have coded everything I want with the lights except one thing. When i pull the light switch in AUTO mode for the fogs to come on, the main headlights comes on too even if its sunny. any way to code it to that I can get the fogs on on AUTO mode without the headlights coming on too? (and they still would come on when dark....)

    Hi DV52, I would like your help. My Fender sub was stolen from my GOLF 2015 and I was able to get a new one. However I don't have to wiring diagrams to proceed with the new installation. I just found the following where you mentioned something about a wiring diagram but nothing is posted (the file is not in your post). Can you help me to get this information?

    Thanks again

    Just wanted to say a quick THANK YOU for a PDF that I ran across. It is the one that is a "how to" map the adaptation channels for VCDS. I found this PDF to be very helpful an now have all of my channels mapped out.
