MK7.5 Exterior Lighting Coding

Hey guys,

I have a 2018 MK7.5 with LP (SE, US spec) and am looking to do some coding with VCDS.

I am looking to turn my taillights on along with my front LED DRLs while the headlight switch is set to Auto. I have found that I prefer this set up in my previous Audis as the headlights can come on later in the evening, and having the taillights illuminated helps with visibility. However I do not want other lights to come on with my DRLs to keep the clean led look up front.

The closest I have found is to set the DRLs to whats known as "Scandinavian DRLs". This essentially just sets the AUTO setting to mimic the DRL setting in US cars. Close, but not exactly what I am looking for. I'll keep looking and report back when I have found the appropriate coding. If anyone else knows, please feel free to chime in.

US Coding:
Headlight switch set to AUTO
FRONT:
LED DRLS front only
Rear:
Nothing




Headlight switch set to DRLs
Front:
LED DRLs
Inner IED reflector
Amber LED
Rear:
LED taillights




Scandinavian DRLs coded

[09] Central Electrics
Security Code: 31347
Adaptation channel:
Tagfahrlicht-Dauerfahrlicht aktiviert zusaetzlich Standlicht
Set to active

Headlight switch set to AUTO
Front:
LED DRLs
Inner LED reflector
Amber LED
Rear:
LED taillights






Headlight switch set to DRLs
Same as switch set to AUTO

MK7.5 Exterior Lighting Coding

Looks like none of your image links are working. You need direct image links, usually ending in .jpg or .png

If youíre just getting the image address from google images, try to get to the actual image in order to get the correct address

One thing that i didn't like about the Scandinavian DRLs is that it also turned on the license plate lights.

I know thereís a way to turn them off but I canít recall how. I asked this over on vwvortex a couple of years ago for my 2015 GTI but canít find the post.

You magnificent bastard! I was so disappointed the "Scandinavian DRLs" lit up the license plate, side markers, and the green icon on the headlight switch that I turned it off the next day and gave up. This is perfect!

Took a few minutes to figure out how to put it in channel C since B is being used by the single sided parking lights.

Speaking of parking lights.... any ideas on turning off the dimly light high beam and/or inner DRLs?

You are welcome. Are you talking about the the little white LED dots? They are hard wired to the amber side markers and you can turn them off under Lichtfunktion A8 and Lichtfunktion A9.

Don't think they're hard wired together on the LED headlights... when my single sided parking lights are on the amber dot is off, but it's on with the regular parking lights. The ambient light is on in the high beam with both so they can't be connected. I think it may actually be the high beam LEDs themselves just dimmed all the way down. Haven't found anyone who's figured it out yet, seems like a lot of the headlight functions run off this stupid new light control module.

I just tried removing the NAR restrictions from the headlights, cleared the error with the basic settings, but it came back along with front turn signal errors, disabled front signals, CAN errors, ACC error(I don't have ACC), disabled cornering lights, and hyper flashing mirror blinkers. Rear blinker functioned normally. Other mods like dimming DRLs with the blinker haven't worked for me either so maybe this LCM won't allow all the stuff people used to be able to do.
