    Finally my wife helped me catching this video with my phone front camera ,



    The problem is :
    Pressing the brake causes flickering effect on the outer taillights.
    The middle LED line flickering while pressing
    The lower LED brightness decreased a lot after breaking (also flickering even without breaking but to a lower extent)

    Also notice at the end of the video the lower LED line gains the brightness again because the switch is turned off.

    Any help, or should I change the harness :-(

    Did you see this with your own eyes? Because you wouldn’t be the first to assume flickering LED’s on video = flickering IRL.
    Current:
    2018 Tiguan AD Highline 2.0 BiTDI 240hp > Stage 1+ 328hp
    2016 Polo 6C Highline 1.0 TSI 105hp

    Yes , I am the one who is taking the video, and I was looking directly to the taillights while I am taking the the video.

    Any ideas ??!

    Finally sorted out :-)
    Just adjusted the “Dimmwert” value from 100 t0 127 in both inner and outer taillights.
    It’s perfect now (no flickering), just the plug and play harnesses without any extra wires from inner to outer.
    Thank you a lot guys.
