Hello,
I have a customer who wants me to tweak cars for them so that when the light controller is set to 0 it turns of all exterior lighting.
The cars are used by the police and security companies.
The cars are almost always new cars so the first cars I have looked at didn’t have that possibility yet or I didn’t find it.
Am I looking at the wrong place in VCDS or are they just to new?

Se attached the latest car they brought.
is it possible to do it in this one?

Best regards/

It's just one adaption channel inside the BCM:
ENG141647-ENG115734-Außenlicht_Front-Tagfahrlicht nur in Schalterstellung AUTO -> set to active

Hello,
Sorry for a late reply.
The tweak worked super. I also managed to disable the light confirmation when locking/unlocking the car.
very thankful for the help!
I then stumbled in to the access code that I could find here on Ross tech.
I guess that it was just luck that the second code I tried worked (31347) and I’m afraid to not have the same luck in the future.
So now I wonder if it’s possible to know in advance what code there is on a car?
My customer will keep coming with cars that need tweaks like this so I would like to be more sure to not be stopped by this access code.

VCDS says that this code is found in the Tech literature so I have talked to the VW tech support in Sweden but they don’t know what it is.
He said that it’s possibly something that ODIS does automatically without the user knowing it.

Best regards/

Tintin: Hi
It really depends on the type of car that your customer brings into the workshop; SA s are specific to the type of module installed in the vehicle, so the car model and build year are important determinants of the security code.

Sometimes VCDS will suggest security code values. These generally are correct and should be used as the first try - IMO.

For the vehicle in your scan above and because it is built on MQB platform, there are a bunch of SA s that can be found here - but this is by no means a complete set.

Of course for other cars, the access codes will be different and I suggest that Mr Google is your friend in these cases. Security codes are a propriety aspect of VAG's suite of information; these codes are not published in the public domain, so you won't find a comprehensive list of numbers on the net, or on any VAG literature (that's accessible outside VAG HQ).

Those codes that are known have trickled into the public arena by various means over the years by the rare few that have such knowledge and codes for new modules are as rare as rocking horse shit!!

Don

PS: I assume that you are aware that control modules easily get cranky if you attempt to enter an incorrect SA; the module will lock-out for a period of time that counts-down with the ignition switched-on.

Hello Don,

Thankyou for your interest.
So the SA is connected to the artnr?
But the risk is that when there is a new generation of component in the car, it can take a couple of months before someone has leaked.
That’s not good for me, The cars are always factory new 🤔

But if they aren’t random they should be possible to find at VW.
I just need to talk to the right person.

Good luck with that, many many people have tried and the VAG community us still having to rely on owners experimenting to find SA codes.

VAG used to publish SA codes in their repair documentation but they stopped that some time back.

Thanks guys. I think I want to tweak ENG141647-ENG115734 in my e-Golf. I don't like things being on unnecessarily (since it doesn't have an engine) while sitting but do like DRLs while driving with the switch in Auto position.

In the meanwhile I added this BCM to the redirect so the next VCDS update should load a label file with the needed SA code.

Dana: "ENG141647-ENG115734"? Isn't this is the switch that disables DRLs except when the LDS is in the AUTO position? Don't you normally drive with the LDS in this position? Or do you enjoy always having to manually switch-on the headlights at dusk and not using CH/LH? :facepalm:

How about using ENG141647-ENG116594 instead? This lets you enable/disable DRL function from the MENU - at least then you can enjoy the benefits of the AUTO position and still have easy control of DRL function!!

And to complete the general philosophy, perhaps even activate ENG141647-ENG122184 - so you are not wasting valuable battery energy on DRLs when the handbrake is on- maybe?

Don

@DV52 Thanks for the ideas. I manually switch the headlight switch so I'm in control of the CH/LH and headlights and my husband is the exact opposite. Heater on, heated seat on, bike on the roof, Auto headlights, etc. If it had a heated steering wheel that would be on as well.

So, I'm the micromanager of every kWh pumped into and sucked out of the car .. and he uses it like a (normal) Golf. :D I hadn't given ENG141647-ENG116594 a thought so I'll experiment with both.

ENG141647-ENG122184 was on by default but ... I think turning on the EPB may use more juice than just leaving the DRLs on while I wait for him to pop into and out of a store? Opening the driver's door just shuts the entire car down shortly after (like start-stop) so this is a non issue if the driver exits.

Thanks again.
