    Round 2 after a trip into town and 2 light out warning. For some reason it cuts off the front running light filament. All the warning go away once the lights have been turned off and back on. All lights light normally until the blinker is used. This is a different reaction to the old module which turned off the rear parking lamp.

    Could not find anything in the Wiki for the 00985 code. I dont believe the 01498 is a bulb or fuse issue as the light works fine. Everything works fine until the right blinker is used with the lights on. Currently the wiring in the headlight is not modified. That is not the side with the damaged headlight clip.

    Have you checked the condition of the ground(s) for the right tail light assembly?

    And the condition of the bulb sockets themselves?

    Rear bulb holder is brand new and was replaced with the original again last night with no change in symptoms. Didn't like the weather seal on the new one. Wouldn't stay in the track.

    The rear ground must be fine because if I add a ground it throws codes. Gets very unhappy if I pull a new ground.

    The last 2 scans were with the old holder, not the new one.

    Sorry for the crazy multi post. I don't trust my abilities to hit the edit button on mobile.


    I did notice it turned off the right front parking filament when I was pulling the log.


    The rear fog still doesn't illuminate but no faults. 11.55v (subs pulling and engine not running) at the socket. Message on dash thrown when the bulb is removed. New bulb, same result. This is the left side though.

    Bulb also doesn't illuminate when using TEST in VCDS.


    Edit (not on mobile!): I found a setting I missed in Adaptation. The intensity. It was set to 24% for sedan which is why it appeared that the bulb did not go out. Changed that back to 0 and we are back at square 1 everything is exactly the same as the original module. Taillight blinks over so many blinker cycles.

    Found 2 burnt contacts on the right front parking light. Replaced the bulb and bulb holder with spares. Got a right parking light message. Right front parking light is out.


    Also noticed that the parking filament in the right front bulb is lighting opposite to the blinker. It dims when the blinker goes bright and goes bright when the blinker dims.

    Rear bulb still goes on and off at it's 7 blink interval.

    That's a sure sign of demonic possession!

    Seriously now, I cannot imagine why overlaying an extra ground wire would make it unhappy. That makes no sense to me at all.

    Dude! I'm not ruling out possession at this time! Hahaha!

    Found a possible rubbed wire in the headlight between the two hot leads to the yellow bulb up there. Patched it to test and it did the same thing.

    Update, decided to pull the power off the battery. left it for 5-10 minutes, and came back with VCDS and cleared the low power faults. Gotta drive it to clear the ABS steering angle low power fault. Gotta do that anyways tonight. Havnt checked for the bulb shenanigans.

    I'm afraid to check for an issue because it'll just be back!

    When would you say it's time to take it to someone else?

    I'd rather not spend an arm and a leg on it but it's driving me insane!

    I don't meant to derail anybodies thought process but for the sake of other people reading this thread.....

    I had a curt trailer wiring controller wired to my Audi A3 MY2008. It worked great at first, but within a year or so I had a never ending stream of bulb out messages, or actual blown bulbs in the car. I chalked it up to an Audi being an Audi. (Electrical gremlins galore) . I had no suspicion of the trailer wiring module as it seemed to work trouble free for a considerable amount of time. Then our vehicle circumstances changed at home and Audi became wifes daily driver, and I started removing the mods on the car. The curt trailer wiring module went along with a couple other things. My bulb errors have decrease 90%. I still blow a taillight bulb every once in a while, but at more 'normal' frequency as compared to other vehicles I've owned. In my opinion.
