Fault: Vehicle Lighting

Hi guys,
i got this error Fault: Vehicle Lighting since last week. No lights in the car were dead, everything works perfectly fine.
however, I did change my tail lights to the mk7r tailights with all led, but I changed it about 5 months ago.

i have reset all my codings for the light to the normal ones and yet this error still shows up. But, when i scan with obd eleven and other scan tools, everytime it gets to 09 Central Electrics, the error is gone and once it’s past that session, the error shows up again. So, I couldn’t find anything as well using the scan. please do help if anyone knows what to do with this error. Thanks.

You probably have a failed bulb in one of the STATIC cornering lights, read you owners manual to find out the bulb location and check for a blown bulb.

Yep. No idea why they made a burnt out cornering bulb trigger an entire lighting fault (rather than just saying "left corner bulb out" etc.).

The above is probably the issue, but I've also seen this fault when putting my Euro switch into Auto mode without the car being coded to support it.

Just had a friend had the same issue and it was the as said above Static cornering bulb. He didn't notice because he always drives in "Eco" mode so they do not light up but the car always does a self check at startup.
The cornering lights work regardless of the mode you're using.

I just received the error Fault: Vehicle Lighting yesterday and after doing some visual inspection determined the cornering lights no longer work. Does anyone know where to pick up a new set at and how hard they are to change?
