About a year ago, I imported a Mk4 Bora Variant TDI from Germany to replace my Mk4 Jetta TDI Wagon. The Bora is a fabulous car with features that VW never made available in NA ( 6MT, 4Motion, better headlights etc, etc ).

With some advice from VW I used my cable and VCDS software to change the language of displayed messages from German to English.

Their advice was to do Adaptation(10) of Instrument Cluster(17). Go to channel 04 and use one of the following numbers:
00001 German
00002 English
00003 French
00004 Italian
00005 Spanish
00006 Portuguese
00008 Czech

The change worked, "Bitte Tanken" is now "Please Refuel".

However, changing the language also disabled the 'chime' that tells you that the headlights have been left on.

I've been poking around in 17-Instruments, exploring but not changing anything, looking for something that would allow me to re-enable the chime. But I realized that I'm out of my depth with VCDS and its capabilities and need some help to re-enable the chime.

I've attached a scan from April 2020 and a scan from March 2021, after the language change was made.

Thank-you for the suggestion. In DEBUG it shows me the before and after values. It shows the change for the language but also a change to Channel 2 that I didn't know about. I'll see where this leads.

Best regards

Restored the original language settings yesterday ( English back to German ). However, restoring the language settings did not re-enable the chime that says you have left the lights on when the key is removed.

The change to Channel 2 was to reset the service interval warning.

So, no further ahead.. The search continues.

The lights on reminder is not tied to coding/adaptation in this age of clusters, however MK4 clusters have a lot of modifications, not all possible options may be described accordingly in VCDS label file 1J0-920-xx5-17.
Just in case make an admap of Your cluster and post it here.
But I'd check needed signals for activating warning chime first - "drivers door open" signal and "key removed" (terminal S) signal.

MartinsX - I browsed the 1J0-920-xx5-17 label file but did not see anything that jumped out at me.

Sorry but I'm not familiar with the term 'admap'. Let me know what you need and I'll be happy to provide it.

I'll double-check the "drivers door open", whether or not the warning chime is still working.

Thanks for your interest and your post.
