Fuse for Left DRL GTI with lighting package

My car gave me a message today that the left DRL needs to be checked. What is the fuse number / location of the fuse ? Figured I would check before going to the stealership. Thanks

I found this fuse chart somewhere before, but can't remember who posted it. I hope it helps http://cloud.tapatalk.com/s/5a8138f3...e%20Layout.pdf

I had the same warning msg a couple months back. My passenger side LED DRL was out. The control module had to be replaced by the dealer, but it was done under warranty.

Did you notice any moisture inside the headlight housing? I think condensation caused mine to fail.

Condensation inside the headlight and taillight housings is normal for these cars. If your DRL went out, it was likely just part of a bad batch

It was a control module, I was days from being out of warranty. $900 I’m glad I didn’t have to pay

While it's a common enough occurrence, I wouldn't exactly call it normal. It's a result of something in the housing-usually a pinched gasket-forming an improper seal.

When my LED DRL failed, it was on a day with heavy rain. I noticed the side that failed had condensation on the inside of the housing, while the good side did not. It could just be a coincidence, but usually, moisture and electronic parts don't mix well together unless they were designed for it.

It's normal and even stated in the manual. The lights (headlights and tail lights) have small holes in the housing, where even bugs/insects can get inside.
