    Hi Don. The issue started by try to code in the the footwell lights. I have reversed what I did initially and the chap who looked at it has then got me back to where I started, with just the original lights working. Now I would like to try and get the footwell lights working.
    Hope this makes sense.

    Don, just to add I followed a guide for a Skoda that I was told would be ok for my golf. I have looked for a guide for the golf and can't see one. In hindsight I should have asked on here first but you live and learn.

    Neil: OK - I'm not sure that I can help, but further facts about your retrofit (I assume that this was a retrofit) might illicit more suggestions from others here.

    First, can you confirm that the footwell lighting kit that you purchased included a wire that you connected to pin#72, socket C on the BCM?

    Also, and as I understand, stuff changed on BCM s post about MY16: on previous control modules, the software switch for the footwell lights was Byte 17, Bit 3 (this was enabled on your previous auto-scan) - and there is also a second software switch on Byte 5, Bit 7 but on many auto-scans that I've seen (like my early model mk7 which had factory footwell lights) this is not set. On the newer BCM s the software switch was "adaptation-ised" in the channel IDE09732-ENG114629-Interior light: light configuration-Foot well lighting - this happened regardless of whether the BCM has a zero-code string, or not.

    And finally - irrespective of BCM type, the Leuchte-set for pin72C on the BCM (which of course was deactivated at the factory) needs to be enabled like this - assuming that the retrofitted lamps are LED type):

    So, perhaps if you clear the current DTC s from your car - and re-post a new unedited auto-scan so we can see what changes were made by "the chap who looked at it" and also post an adaptation map of the BCM.
