    Bummer. Sounds like my speculation in post #53 is correct (M33/34 spliced to plate lights) .. but it may not flag codes if you pull the bulbs.

    AudiSport: No wall has been hit - Bingo, there's your answer!!!


    Here's the Leuchte-set for your BCM for Pin #59, Socket A (I've re-arranged the channel sequence, so that the "Alpa-pairs" are more easily read):

    Code:
    ENG116961-ENG116347-Leuchte25KZL HA59-Lasttyp 25	 ->	43 - allgemeine LED 
    ENG116961-ENG116577-Leuchte25KZL HA59-Lampendefektbitposition 25	 ->	28
    ENG116961-ENG116349-Leuchte25KZL HA59-Fehlerort mittleres Byte DTC-DFCC 25	 ->	30
    ENG116961-ENG116350-Leuchte25KZL HA59-Lichtfunktion A 25	 ->	Standlicht allgemein (Schlusslicht: Positionslicht: Begrenzungslicht) 
    ENG116961-ENG116351-Leuchte25KZL HA59-Lichtfunktion B 25	 ->	Coming Home oder Leaving Home aktiv 
    ENG116961-ENG116352-Leuchte25KZL HA59-Dimmwert AB 25	 ->	100
    ENG116961-ENG116353-Leuchte25KZL HA59-Lichtansteuerung HD AB 25	 ->	Always 
    ENG116961-ENG116354-Leuchte25KZL HA59-Lichtfunktion C 25	 ->	not active 
    ENG116961-ENG116355-Leuchte25KZL HA59-Lichtfunktion D 25	 ->	not active 
    ENG116961-ENG116356-Leuchte25KZL HA59-Dimmwert CD 25	 ->	0
    ENG116961-ENG116357-Leuchte25KZL HA59-Dimming Direction CD 25	 ->	maximize 
    ENG116961-ENG116358-Leuchte25KZL HA59-Lichtfunktion E 25	 ->	beidseitiges Dauerparklicht 
    ENG116961-ENG116359-Leuchte25KZL HA59-Lichtfunktion F 25	 ->	not active 
    ENG116961-ENG116360-Leuchte25KZL HA59-Dimmwert EF 25	 ->	100
    ENG116961-ENG116361-Leuchte25KZL HA59-Dimming Direction EF 25	 ->	maximize 
    ENG116961-ENG116362-Leuchte25KZL HA59-Lichtfunktion G 25	 ->	not active 
    ENG116961-ENG116363-Leuchte25KZL HA59-Lichtfunktion H 25	 ->	not active 
    ENG116961-ENG116364-Leuchte25KZL HA59-Dimmwert GH 25	 ->	0
    ENG116961-ENG116365-Leuchte25KZL HA59-Dimming Direction GH 25	 ->	maximize

    As you will read, there's nothing particularly remarkable about the Leutche-set - except for the "beidseitiges Dauerparklicht " command, which has been placed (by the Audi factory - I assume) in the the sequence such that this lighting function has the greatest priority. Mr Google translates this command as double-sided continuous parking light - so if you read the EF "Leuchte sub-group" it says that the lamp(s) on this pin should be illuminated 100% continuously as parking lights - with the highest priority!

    Now, I've not seen this leuchte-command used in this mode before (which means nothing at all), but if DJAlix is correct (and he/she normally is correct) why not try changing:
    ENG116961-ENG116358-Leuchte25KZL HA59-Lichtfunktion E 25 to not active,

    and to clean-up the hanging auxiliary command - also change:
    ENG116961-ENG116360-Leuchte25KZL HA59-Dimmwert EF 25 to 0

    So the "beidseitiges Dauerparklicht" command is missing from this BCM pin.

    If your car is similarly wired, try replicating the EF Leuchte sub-set from Audisport's car

    @AudiSportB5S4

    I have one simple idea.
    ENG116961-ENG116350-Leuchte25KZL HA59-Lichtfunktion A 25,Standlicht allgemein (Schlusslicht: Positionslicht: Begrenzungslicht) ,16
    ENG116961-ENG116351-Leuchte25KZL HA59-Lichtfunktion B 25,Coming Home oder Leaving Home aktiv ,16
    ENG116961-ENG116358-Leuchte25KZL HA59-Lichtfunktion E 25,beidseitiges Dauerparklicht ,16
    Set these three light functions to "not active".

    If there is really a wiring to the plate lights, the side markers will be shut off then.

    Thanks for this but the upper light function "Standlicht allgemein" covers it all! So the plate lights (KZL - Kennzeichenbeleuchtung) are on as soon as any light is switched on. The "beidseitiges Dauerparklicht" is some kind of a redundant light function from my point of view.

    Thanks Don/hadez! Will give this a shot later and report back. Fingers crossed!

    hadez: Very interesting hypothesis!! I've not seen in factory coded Leutche-sets the concept of "redundant light function(s)". In my (albeit limited) experience, VW's programming of these adaptation channels has always been the epitome of German efficiency!

    However, I foresee a problem with your suggestion: if DJAlix is correct (and he/she generally is correct), removing the "Standlicht allgemein" command from the HA59 Leuchte-set will mean that the license-plate light will no longer illuminate when the Parking lights are enabled (with low-beam).

    Now, I'm not sure about the road rules in CT? (AudiSport's location), but down here in the backwaters of the deep south - our local "plod" take a very dim view (pun intended) of non functioning license plate lights!

    Good news/bad news! Good news is they’re off!! Bad news is as you expected Don that now my license plate bulbs are out too which is deff an easy target for being pulled over at night. Doh!

    Doing just the two you mentioned E25 for light function and dimmwert didnt work, only once i then made not active A25 as well (standlicht allegmein) did they finally turn off.

    Does that mean it won’t be possible to have what I want? it looks so good with those damn orange beacons turned off! Lol..

    Here's the teaser.... IT LOOKS SO MUCH BETTER!

    Your statement would be true if there was a "NOT" at the end. (I put it in...)

    The priority of the "Light function" go from H to A where H > A.
    If Standlicht function in function A is removed, the lights would be still on if light function "beidseitiges Dauerparklicht" is switched on.

    Does that mean it won’t be possible to have what I want? it looks so good with those damn orange beacons turned off! Lol..
    Wow...what a mess.
    So somehwere is a hard-wiring from plate lights to side markers. I gues somewhere near the BCM.

    Yeah.. Tangled web here!

    Does the result of me turning off Standlicht allgemein (Schlusslicht: Positionslicht: Begrenzungslicht in A25 and losing both lights mean that the only way to achieve this now is for me to manually unplug those bulbs up front? I have a hard time believing that's the case if they are present on your car where you're trying to enable them.. Feels like it has to be in coding!
