    03 Avant bulb out messages

    No fault codes outside it being unhappy with the S2 cats.

    When the lights are on and the right blinker is active the right rear tail brake filament turns on and off about every 7 blinks at a reduced intensity. After the the blinker is cancelled a bulb out message is thrown.

    The bulb holder is new, bulbs are new, CECM has been replaced with "working condition" used module which acts similarly as the old unit. Cannot find an issue in the wiring by basic diagnostics.

    Car does have a Curt trailer light controller that has not caused issues in the past.

    Even though there are no fault codes we'll still need to see a full unedited VCDS Auto-Scan

    I'll see what I can do later this evening.

    What would the scan tell you that error messages won't?

    Full system wide scan or just a scan of that module?

    Everything; the whole car please. Even in 2003, cars were already a computer network on wheels.

    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.

    Hi,

    As mentioned above by petroldave if you can please post a full auto scan. Once you carry out a full auto scan

    You can walk your way to Local C/primary drive > RossTech > scans> open the file. Copy all the information CTRL + A> CTRL + C = clicking a # above in this typo CTRL + V from a full auto scan we can learn and tell you more about the car. Also advise you an appropriate ideal solution for your vehicle. Alternatively please click on the link below on how to post an Auto Scan

    These things really are an awesome super computer on wheels. Im not a noobie on computer stuff, just VCDS. Managed to bumble my way though adaptation and coding of the Central Electronics module that I changed out. Trailer light controller was removed tonight. Its a car. If I need to tow Im using a body on frame vehicle like the one parked next to it which is 34 years old a not a computer on wheels. It hardly knows how to pulse an injector.

    The controller was tied into a Green/Black wire that is missing on my chiltons wiring diagrams. It was rather crudely spliced in. Its been cleaned up, soldered and shrink wrapped. What is that wire on the right rear tail light assembly?

    I do have an aftermarket head unit that sits on CANBUS and sends info to the dash. I do have an aftermarket amp and subs that have completely replaced the OEM amp/sub box. Otherwise the car should be stock.

    I couldnt find info on a 01311 code. Its a new one I havnt seen before. The S2 O2 "codes" have gone away (battery recently disconnected for the CECM swap) as has my sticky rear door lock code, for now. No CEL for the cats.

    Not comfortable with having my VIN floating around. If anyone from Ross-Tech needs licensing confirmation, please ask and Ill PM.

    Current VCDS log: Please excuse formatting.

    One of the CAN buses connected to the instrument cluster is in backup mode, where data can only flow through a single wire rather that the differential signal on a twisted pair. I think it's the one that connects to the radio, but I'm not 100% certain of that. Anyway, it may be an artifact of the aftermarket HU.

    Nah, we know it's legit. In some cases the VIN is needed to build a coding or look stuff up, but that's not the case here.

    As for the bulb out message, I'm stumped. I'd expect to see something in the scan about that.

    I'm thinking head unit is the cause of that too. It havnt popped up till now and I've had the head unit in there for a while. I bet a cold boot could fix that.

    I'm super stumped and getting pretty annoyed at the bulb out. As soon as the lights are cycled the message goes away. I do have a rear fog out which doesn't throw a code until I physically remove the bulb. Probably lost the vacuum on the bulb.

    Here is a YouTube of what the bulb does. It's subtile but it turns on and off the brake filament at a reduced intensity. Super unprofessional video but it was originally made for a buddy to see what it is doing.

    So, attempt #4 to post. Every time I try to edit a post it gets deleted. I select the text area and the page reloads and deleted my post. Each post is getting shorter and shorter due to level of aggravation of having to do it all over again.


    Quick unprofessional clip of what the bulb does while the blinker is on. It's subtle. Gotta run into town tomorrow so I'll try to get a VCDS log with an active bulb out on the dash.

    I un-deleted post #8 for your. The following two appear to be duplicates. I have no idea what you are doing that's causing them to get deleted. What kind of device are you using to post here?
