    Start here:
    http://wiki.ross-tech.com/wiki/index...lroad_%284F%29

    Enabling DRLs is done in the regular (short) coding of the 09-CECM module; see here.

    0xxxx?x: Daytime Running Lights
    0 = w/o Daytime Running Lights
    1 = with Daytime Running Lights (not selectable via MMI)
    2 = with Daytime Running Lights (selectable via MMI)

    That means it's in the second-to-last digit of that module's coding.
    Yours is already set to 0133122, meaning DRLs are set to be selectable in the MMI

    This was also shown in one of the screen-shots you previously linked to:

    .

    You may also want to check some model-specific sections of various Audi forums for things you can do.

    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.

    Thanks Uwe, I'm good with the DRL's , good with the headlights as well as the highs, and the fogs, but I've also got amber corners with 5w bulbs in the front bumper. These are two of the the faults i'm getting. I've replaced the bulbs but still get err message. I'd just as soon turn these off to solve issue.

    Code:
    Faults Found:
    01494 - Bulb for Parking Lamps; Left (M1) 
                011 - Open Circuit
                 Freeze Frame:
                        Fault Status: 01111011
                        Fault Priority: 2
                        Fault Frequency: 15
                        Reset counter: 117

    Do I keep these Fault Codes as a record ?
    Looks like some of them date to 2010.
    or, will clearing these faults remove the flashing DIS warning and restore the "Scan Log" to no fault status ?
    Thanks again for the hlp, going to start reading up on code scanning and clearing fault codes, doesn't look like i am going to be able to do much of anything else.

    With fault codes having a date that old it's definitely worth clearing them and seeing if they come back - if they don't then they were a historical record of a fault that no longer exists.

    Interesting that the faults are "open circuit" and not flagged "intermittent".

    Do these lights currently work?

    What kind of bulbs did you install?

    I'm not getting a bulb at all now.
    This is the reason i bought the VCDS. want to just turn these off.
    About 2 weeks ago i started getting a warn in the DIS about L corner bulb (WY5W *amber)
    Popped the lenses a week ago, swapped bulbs L/R for a few days [warn on right side!]
    Pulled both bulbs from sockets for several days, ordered a pair of (W5W *white) bulbs, put them in the sockets, confirmed seat.
    Dont think they have worked since. Going to have try a new set of bulbs tomorr.

    * thanx, I appreciate your help !

    Make sure you check the contacts for corrosion/fatigue as well. As with license plate light fittings, these aren’t always perfectly watertight and may corrode over time, and the bulb socket itself or whatever part its part of usually doesn’t cost that much.

    Well I hate to be the giver of bad news, but I don't think you can arbitrarily disable individual lights on this old CECM. I don't think the module has the flexibility you desire, and VCDS can only change the things that the module has provisions to change.
