MK7.5 OEM LED Tails

I have the same kit as @Makkish , I got the 4 blue 8 pin connectors and repined to instructions provided, same with BCM "C" connector re-pin (swap C9 and C3) - Couple inconsistencies found:

- Inner LH tail light does not have black/white pin that can go into slot 7 (LHD only)
- BCM yellow wire from the kit says it goes into cavity C6, but it is already populated with a black/white wire.

What should I do with the black/white C6? where does that go? I'm getting my meter later this week, so I have not been able to continuity test this.
Anybody else ran into this? MK7.5R US (NAR) spec.

The config for Brakes, and park lamps has been done, and they work fine, only thing not working is outer turn signals. Inner turn signals go dynamic.

C6 on US cars are the red rear side markers. BK/WH on inner-left slot 7 is rear fog light, US cars don’t have that wire. Furthermore US cars don’t have separate turn signal wires. That’s the reason why you don’t have outer turn signals. Why don’t you grab the outer-turn signal (slot8) from your inner-lights (slot8)? Otherwise you can run three more wires to the BCM to get rear fog, turn signal left and right.

Thanks!

Just finished the wiring.
Wanted to follow the booklet from the kit but those instructions specific to the BCM repinout are not the best.

So, I left C3 and C9 intact, manual says to swap them but wire length is not enough and vibration could severe the terminal once the C connector of the BCM is installed. Just kept a note to inverse those in the Leuchte Config.

I also left C6 (side markers) intact, and disconnected LH outter side, and it's dedicated to the RH outter.

Spliced #8 from inner LH turn signal to cavity 8 on LH outter as you suggested.

Used the VW retrofit harness on BCM A72 to feed all lamps.


BCM configuration-
Found out of I set the intensity to 50 instead of 127, dynamic blink would not work, only regular on/off.

The last thing I have to do is clear the code for Lighting. Getting this popup every key cycle. Do you have some suggestions on what to set the lamp bit function and DTC DFCC?

Appreciate your feedback!

Installed mine on my GTI 7.5 ROW (Argentina).
Many thanks to @ZERO815 for his help, impressed with his knowledge on this subject. I totally recommend his harnesses and coding directions for an OEM-like install of this lights.

Greetings from Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Hello,

I have a european golf 7.5 and I'm trying to retrofit the Dynamic LED taillights from standard LED taillights with the 5G1052200C kit from VW, i have already installed it's harnesses from the BCM ( did the C3 to C9 switch and yellow on C6 to the tail) to the taillights, now i just need to do the coding but since i can't use ODIS only odbeleven i would like to know if can someone give me a hand, i have already searched around but theres so many different ways to install the lights with different harnesses and US / European cars that I'm a bit lost about the correct coding with odbeleven.

Appreciate the any help.

Hey there,

Running into an issue with the Helix Mk7 Facelift Euro lights. Harness installed and VCDS coded using these instructions.

Left turn signal = Both sequential turn lights flash on and off (like emergency lights)
Right turn signal = Fine


Any ideas or help would be appreciated!

Try to post in the VCDS tweaks thread:

Does anyone have the original coding for factory mk7 tails? I’m removing the 7.5 tail lights and need to code back to factory settings.
That coding varies depending on what harness you used and weather or not you coded for rear fogs.

Need more information.

So I was able to find my stock coding in the obd11 history.
But I’m having an issue where the car says there is an issue with my right reverse light.
Which adaptation is for the left and right tail lights?
Since the left side works I’m guessing I can just copy the settings.

For your MK7.5 you need to re-pin Inner-Left Pin7 (left reverse) to Pin6, and code Leuchte28 as rear fog light. For the missing left reverse light grab the signal from the right reverse light. Get yourself a repair wire, connect one end to Inner-Left Pin7, solder/crimp/butt-connect the other end to wire of Inner-Right Pin7.

Don't forget the European headlight switch and the coding for the switch.

Hello!
I just installed a set of 7.5 Dynamic LEDs with the DAP harness. 2019 NAR GTI Rabbit Edition. I double checked all the wiring and coding they provided, but I'm still running into an issue:

Brake Lights Work, Turn Signals Work...
But I've got no running lights

Any ideas?
