Hi guys, if you are frustrated that your dashboard and headunit illumination goes into complete darkness when you switch to "sidelights on only" on these new golfs, then the solution for you is as follows:

Open controller [17-Instruments]

If required only; [security Access-16] > Enter 20103 , or 25327 if you have a MY15 or later Golf 7 model

Select [Adaptation-10] >

Select ENG125906-ENG126396-Illumination_algorithm-Scale_switching_algorithm

Change Illumination_algorithm-Scale_switching_algorithm from "parking_light" to "lds" in the pulldown new value field

Select Do it

Select Done

You are sorted, enjoy .
