    Headlight Out Error When Using LEDs

    I have a 2003 VW Jetta wagon with LED headlights. This is the MK4/ALH model/engine. The dash throws an error of headlights not working with the symbol blinking. This prevents me from setting a speed on cruise control. I have to turn off the lights to set cruise control. Is there a way to disable this headlamp check/error with VCDS? Or is my only option to try and find a different way to wire my lights?

    I've thought about installing load resistors hooked up to a relay so I can flick them on to correct the error when I want to set cruise control instead of turning off the lights, which probably freaks out other nearby drivers every time I do it. But this is a last resort tactic if I can't find a better solution.

    I don't think there's any way to change that on an Mk.4, but please post an Auto-Scan so people can see exactly what modules are installed in your car.

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    Yeah.... The lights in that car are not computer-controlled. I'm not sure how it does bulb-out checks...

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    I'll ask around on some other forums and see. I'm sure there's a non-resistor solution. Thanks for checking!

    The design of the systems in 'em is from the mid-to-late 1990s.
