Hey there everybody. Wondering in anyone would have any insight to some errors that I'm getting on my dash - and (obviously) on my scan.

Scan is below, but a few details to clarify.

- Seems like I am getting a lot of circuit failure codes from the rear of the car. Including a Bulb Out Warning for a turn signal that is actually working properly.
I am also getting random factory alarm events.

Not positive, but i believe I've solved the alarm issue - the seal/grommet around the rear wiper is letting some moisture seep-in, and it's caused corrosion to form on (what I believe) is the glass breakage sensor. I've cleaned away the corrosion and ordered a new grommet. Alarm has not tripped since cleaning - BUT, it has not rained since I've done the work. Fingers crossed.

I'd like to solve the BOW issue to get that silly light to go out on the dash. Does anyone have any insight on the location of a connector/harness that would possibly impact the other errors? I have pulled the tail lights a few times (over the last 4-years) to clean & re-secure connections...but this problem continues to pop-up. I seem to recall reading that ground/earth corrosion on the VAG cars is common, and that (maybe) the fault is due to insufficiently gauged wires from the factory. Regardless of the root cause - has anyone found a way to successfully eliminate these silly issues? It's really an inconvenience to have to pull the tail lights every few months.

Anyway - any help youse guys can offer is appreciated!!!

Hello,

I would suggest to clear codes, perform an [Output Tests] in the [09-Cent. Elect.] (J519) controller and see if there are any issues with any of the lights you had fault codes for. Also after the Output test, see if any of the codes return.

For inspection purposes, it maybe necessary to remove some rear C-pillar trim to access the connections and ground for the rear lights, see the Official Factory Repair Information for information about these connectors and grounds.

From what I can see, the Ground (#61), Left C-pillar, is for the W3-Luggage compartment lamp and the X-License-Plate Light. The ground (#62), is for the M8-Right rear turn signal bulb and is on the Right C-pillar, so you may have a concern on both side?

If the lights do work, the faults come back and there are no connection issues, it is possible the J519-Vehicle electrical system control module may be faulty.

I, personally had a concern with the rear wiper motor failing due to water leaking through the rear seal, on a A3, that took out/damaged the J519 controller and in that case the left front turn signal would blink a few times and then would stop... Weird failure, so I tend not to rule out the weird or improbable when working with these vehicles.

If you clear the codes and any come back, post a new Auto-Scan for us to see, this may help pin point the actual source or at least the right place to start looking.

Hope this helps,

drpeter
