@ZERO815

I purchased a cable Zero815 and mk7.5 euro taillights from a guy with a 2017 or 2018 r. I'm installing them on my also 2018 golf r. I'm using odbeleven to code.

Where can I find the exact document or video to use for coding with odbeleven.

Please thank you.

Hi All!

I'm new here and I may have messed up some of the coding light functionality on my car - would appreciate any help to revert it back to a previous state.

Bit of background:
I purchased a set of OEM LED euro tails w/ rear fogs. Part numbers match posts earlier in this thread.
Car is a 2019 NAR Golf R

Harness used:
JBale harness, a new old stock set I purchased off a friend who never used it. Comes with the OEM rear fog switch. Harness instructions and fit are for a mk7.5 to mk7.5

Pinned, and completed the install no problems. But when it gets to coding via OBD11, that's where the issues start. Followed JBales instructions to the letter, and everything seems to be working, except the dynamic ambers. Both lights come on as one solid bar. I made the mistake of using the SHOPDAP App for Euro tails. No difference in dynamic functionality (still doesn't work), but I believe at this point, the rear tail (inner and outer) are on permanently. Car is off, and doors are unlocked, the rear lights are on and will not shut off. Nothing I do will get the rear lights to turn off unless I lock the doors. Otherwise the rear lights are on in all conditions.

Brakes, turn signals, rear fog and everything work (except for dynamic functionality), and the rear DRLs are constantly on. How do I fix this? Any Advice?

Bumping this thread - need a little help with VCDS coding for the rear fog - 7.5 tails on 7.5 - TIA

Just ordered my lights from E-Acca and Zero has my harness shipped, I’ll update with how long it took to get the tails in from e-acca once I receive them for those curious on current timeframe.

Edit* so I just wired it up per dap instructions and just didn’t code for rear fog and that worked.

Anyone mind answering a quick question. I’m using the shopdap mk7.5 harness. And I don’t have a rear fog nor do I want to have one. In one of his videos (mk7 to mk7.5 led) he mentions moving the green cable on the driver inner to position 6 from 7. And leave it in 7 if you wish to have rear fogs. However in their instructions the cable from the passenger inner tail goes to position 6 on the driver inner tail.
Do I just do that and just not code for a rear fog ? Or do I have to adjust the wiring as well?

What kind of depinning tool is needed to remove the pins on the tail-light connectors? This would actually be on a MK7 connector, not MK7.5, but I'd assume the pins are the same. I'm looking at potentially removing my sequential tails, and would need to remove the pin that was run from inner to outer and whatnot.

Didn't think my question needed it's own thread.

Don't recall the exact one when I made the harnesses for my 7.5 Euro tail swap, but I use two sets when working on electrical with the VW that work:

Should cover any type of connector you could come across that needs to done. Much easier that attempting a sowing needle or something else like i've done in the past. :ROFLMAO:
