Coding Help Please - MK7 R Helix Euro LED Tails - Passenger Running Light Not Coming On

Hey guys, looking for a little help. I installed the Helix Euro LED Tail on my R today that I had on my GTI. Ran the harness, hooked everything up, and used the same one-touch OBD11 app to do the coding that I did with my GTI. The results is that everything is working, except for just the running light on the passenger side. Brake lights work on both sides, sequential signals work on both sides. But if the car is just idling, the passenger light is completely off.

They're these lights with that harness.

Brake light works fine for both sides:

$25 PayPal'd to the person who can help fix this as a thank you so they can buy themselves a beer/wine/coffee/whatever drink of their choice. While it should be fine to drive since the safety features (blinker/brake light) are working, I'd really like to get this taken care of before I have to drive it.

When I turn on my turn signal, this red light also blinks.

Is there a way to code that out, so it is just the sweeping amber light? I know that didn't happen when I had these lights on my GTI.

Thanks.

Question for @ZERO815 or anybody else who knows coding these lights.

Looks like your rear fog is activating.

Leuchte27NSL RC6 settings?

normally 26 is rear fog, but not sure of differences in the R and the Wagon.

Maybe check Lichtfunktion A27 is set to Nebelschlusslicht wenn kein Anhänger gesteckt.

Or do you even have a rear fog setup? Does your switch have two pull out spots for fogs? 1st is front, 2nd is rear

No. I never got a switch for the rear fogs, or ran what I assumed was the separate cable for them.

I'll run out and grab both 26 and 27 in a moment.

26 and 27. Tried changing it from not active to that German phrase, no change.
