    How-to disable Fog Light test [2005 Touareg]

    Hi,
    I replaced my old Fogs with new LEDs. I get warning light because of low resistance of the lights. To save a few bucks, I would like to use VCDS to diable of modify that fog light check.

    I will soon do the same with head lights...

    Thanks for your help.

    The CECM in that vehicle pre-dates the availability of white LED lamps. The only thing it has pertaining to the front fogs is a coding bit that determines whether they are active/installed. You can try turning that off, but my guess is your fogs won't work at all if you do so.

    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.
