is there a fuse that's making the noise that could be yanked out to at least stop the beeping?

Tried helping out someone with this yesterday on his 2019 GTI SE (US) using VCDS and did my usual "no display" setting but no change. I did the same thing on my 19 GSW 4mo and it worked for me. Something I am thinking is that it might be related to the KESSY module with something hard coded within newer modules? I have a full adaption map of one of these modules and I'll be combing through it but I am not sure this is something that can be disabled on these cars after looking at the car for an hour yesterday.

Tell me if this works...

Turn the engine on, open the driver door and push the "<" or ">" button on the steering wheel.

Are there other hidden functions using the steering wheel buttons?

None that I'm aware of :)

I stumbled on that by accident honestly, I'm not sure if it's specific to my make/model/year or if it's a weird Volkswagen thing.

Quick Google search...

Appears that this may be able to be coded off?

Also, the steering wheel buttons appear to work on older Audis too... Now I'm curious if it will work for the GTI as well. Someone go try it, I don't have my GTI 😭

Works as in turns off the engine on beep?

< or > is the skip track and volume buttons on the steering wheel?

I tried that and it doesn't turn off the beep. Just the buttons functions as intended.

Yeah, silences the beeping.

Oh well :( Maybe that coding in the link I posted will work?
