    Deactivate "Broken Lightbulb" warning on Audi Rs4 B7 8ec -2006?

    Hello!
    does anyone know how to deactivate "broken lightbulb" warning on dash display with vcds on the -2006 Audi rs4 b7 8ec models? i'm sick of it and just don't want to see it on the display anymore, i don't care about the fault code when scanning the car! i just don't want the warning on the display.

    i hope someone can help me. and if you don't know, don't answer with guesses.
    Thanks!

    Then I won’t guess. Is the lightbulb broken or not?

    It's not broken, just replaced with LED bulbs and canbus resistors

    Then the resistors are not the correct value (resistance) to fool the bulb failure warning system.

    I owned a B7 RS4 (2007 model) for 10 years and AFAIK the only bulb failure warning there is a coding to defeat is the front fog lights - all the other bulb warnings cannot be defeated, so you'll just have to fit the correct resistors.

    AFAIK? (i'm from sweden so i don't know what that means) it's my DRL, fogs and licensplate bulbs/lights that's switched to LED. But my only question is if it's possible to turn off the broken lightbulb warning on the display?

    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.
