Hi all, new member here but not new to VCDS. I have US running lights activated in my golf mk5, I wanted to adjust the brightness percentage in vcds but when I change the value and click enter it just reverts back to the original value.

I think it's to do with the recent update, am I missing something and there is another way to do it now?

Many thanks in advance
Joe

You'll need to post a full unedited VCDS Auto-Scan of your Golf, and please describe EXACTLY what you tried to change (coding, adaptation,...).

Thanks for the reply, I managed to do it but only with the previous version 20.4 software. Is this something I can report to be looked at with the new 20.12 release?

@Havelin A Laugh : Hi. With my apology to Dave for stealing his thunder, the answer is that you should always use the latest release version of VCDS (not only to post on this forum, but also to undertake diagnostics).

However, in this case - since this vehicle is Golf mk5 and therefore not a "new vehicle", I suspect that ver 20.12 will answer at least some of the questions that the forum needs resolved to garner informed responses- maybe?

You will find instructions HERE regarding how to paste the auto-scan into a post

Hi thanks for the reply, please see autoscan below. Using latest VCDS software. My intention was to go into 09-Cent. Elec, long coding, byte 7 to change the brightness of my 'indicators as sidelight' value. As mentioned on previous versions I was able to do this and change the coding, this time round on the updated/latest software the value in the box cannot be changed to adjust the indicator brightness.

this time round on the updated/latest software the value in the box cannot be changed to adjust the indicator brightness.
Please post some screen-shots showing why you think it can't be changed.

Hopefully this link works, the value I want to change is 0 to '#' for example but once I click away or click enter it just reverts back to original value.

# is not a valid number (either decimal or hexadecimal)?

Some bits are not necessarily stored by a module in all bytes, so even if you enter a valid digit it's not impossible for the software in the module (nothing to do with VCDS) to revert back to the original value.

# - I meant example of any number used.
