    Retrofit ambient lighting for Pano sunroof

    Interesting! A quick course for us newbies on how to read wiring diagrams? Hehe.

    Retrofit ambient lighting for Pano sunroof

    To my understanding this is just a plastic tube? You still need a good quality LED.

    Retrofit ambient lighting for Pano sunroof

    Well, in that case, I don't think the BCM will support it. However, I don't mind plugging it into existing ambient light. The problem is I don't want to order the LEDs only to find out they don't fit.

    I think we should wait for @ZERO815 to respond here :-).

    Retrofit ambient lighting for Pano sunroof

    Is there a way to test if Pin 29 on Socket B does something when you move the slider on the MMI? will the voltage change? It’s the best way to check itI think.

    Retrofit ambient lighting for Pano sunroof

    So, to my understanding: Pin 1 -> Pin 4 of B552 (roof wiring harness) Pin 2 -> Pin 29 of T73B (Socket B of BCM0 Pin 4 -> Ground?

    How do you see which one goes to the BCM?

    RGB mood lighting (colors) 4 door panels and foot for golf 7

    The problem with the ambient light retrofit is that there's almost no information regarding this.

    RGB mood lighting (colors) 4 door panels and foot for golf 7

    I never had good experience with AliExpress "OEM" stuff, I only use it to purchase wiring harnesses. Also it has bad reviews on the light quality.

    RGB mood lighting (colors) 4 door panels and foot for golf 7

    You guys should avoid things like this from AliExpress. Every "genuine" light I received from AliExpress vendors was really low and the LEDs were obviously fake and not genuine. @Genebaby What exactly did you purchase? Can you take detailed pictures? What did your car have from factory?

    PDC Retrofit Question

    If you purchased the kit from AliExpress, then it's definitely made to be on the left side. Initially when I had it on the left side, I had my buddy block each sensor while I was looking at the screen. It did correspond, meaning the harness was made to be mounted from left to right. The...

    PDC Retrofit Question

    I believe so. The Chinese vendors on AliExpress also supply the same PDF supplied by carsystems PL (https://carsystems.home.pl/marcin/support/VW_Golf_MK7-_PDC_ANG_v10.pdf). This PDF is pretty lame, as it doesn't follow the OEM instructions for this and it barely has any information. As for the...

    PDC Retrofit Question

    I ended up moving it to the right, as per the OEM instructions. The harness is made to be on the left side, because when I tested the sensors they were positioned correctly. I will have to repin them which kinda sucks.

    Retrofit ambient lighting for Pano sunroof

    Interesting. I’d like to also retrofit this some day but I don’t know the part numbers or how much labor it requires. anyways, I contacted two of the AliExpress vendors for wiring diagrams for the sunroof connection. Maybe this will give us a hint. I also contacted ZERO815 which might have...

    Retrofit ambient lighting for Pano sunroof

    Looking good. Seems like you have the door ambient light. Is it factory or did you retrofit it?

    I was actually looking for the PIN numbers on the connectors so I know where to connect the ESC off/SET! Tires buttons :-). If you happen to know them.

    Retrofit ambient lighting for Pano sunroof

    I think the original spot is under the shade, I'm not sure. I don't have any reference and couldn't find anything online. I think it goes straight to the BCM, but I could be wrong. I'm not sure if the BCM even supports it, as I don't know the pinouts for this. If it doesn't, we can simply...

    PDC Retrofit Question

    Exactly. I think you're from the US so you have LHD car. On RHD cars, the left side grommet above the footwell is actually clean. On LHD cars, it's filled with tons of wires and you can barely poke anything in it. The space is very limited and I'm honestly not sure how I'm going to do it. Side...

    Retrofit ambient lighting for Pano sunroof

    Interesting. I'm going to go to my car now to try to enable the adaptations to see if it does something. I believe it will show the roof lighting menu on my MMI, but I don't think the BCM has a pinout for this. I will also check if I have the same slots and update here. EDIT: So, after...

    PDC Retrofit Question

    Glad to hear you got your sensors installed! I actually already had 4 rear sensors cut as the previous owner installed aftermarket sensors through the dealer. In Israel, they install "Cobra" type sensors which are flush just like the genuine ones and they are the same size so the new sensor fit...
