Hello, I am a newbie to both VCDS and the forum :) and need a little help with understanding how to get rid of the annoying 'Check front Left Main beam' and dash light after upgrading my DRL/High beam halogen bulbs to LEDs on my 2011 VW GOLF MK6 GTI.

I have found a few posts online talking about byte 18 in particular, but between a those posts and VCDS warning me if I code incorrectly I could cause irreversible damage I am apprehensive to try something for a golf of a different year and spec. Therefore I'd like to be a little more sure before I balls something up on my own.

Auto-scan gives me fault code '01495' - I have swapped over the LEDs and still get the same error on the left one only (despite them both working fine). If I put the halogens back in I have no error hence me thinking is a coding issue not a wiring/faulty LED issue.

Here's to hoping the below Auto-scan result is of some use (ignore the other malfunctions for now hah):

Code:

The MK6 BCM isn't very accommodating to LED bulb swaps via the normal diagnostic API. My guess is you'll either have to install some load resistors or tinker with the EEPROM parameters, which VCDS doesn't support.

I will give the resistor option a go when I get chance, thanks very much Uwe!
