    VLAND Headlight Upgrade Problems MK6 Golf

    I know this subject has been brought up before but everyone seems to be having different problems with these lights. Here we go anyway.



    I've fitted a set of VLAND head & tail lights to my MK6 TDI. Really happy with the way they look but I am running into issues. The dash warning light seems to be a normal issue that I believe can be fixed with a small change to the long coding on VCDS. (Central Elec line 18). saying that I am brand new to VCDS so i'm not sure exactly what I need to do to remove the warning light. Can anyone offer some advice? When I load line 18, VCDS gives me a warning and doesn't allow me to change the binary code.



    On a (I think) different fault, the dipped headlights aren't working on either side of the headlights. The DRL, indicators and full beam work fine. You can hear the internal shutter moving in the headlight unit.Ii have read in a couple of threads that the plug may be wired wrong. Again, any advice on this would be great.



    Thanks in advance

    As your byte 18 is currently 00, it's probably better to use another tool (VCP/ODIS-e) to both backup the current lighting config and tweak it for the new lights.

    I take it those are different diagnostic systems? Is there no way to adjust it using VCDS? I bought it so I could carry out tweeks like this when I needed to?

    You can certainly use VCDS to change byte 18 but in your case, I wouldn't suggest doing so...

    As the value is 00, this means the true value has been masked by VW or more likely, none of the byte 18 options are correct for your car. Instead, VW set the value to 00 and then set the lighting config directly in the EEPROM. Be warned, if you change byte 18, you cannot restore the original light config by changing it back to 00! It will continue using whatever lighting config you last set...

    If you're very lucky, one of the byte 18 values will be correct for your car with the aftermarket lights. This is very unlikely and given you won't be able to restore the stock configuration afterwards, I really wouldn't suggest trying.

    As VCDS is primarily a diagnostic tool, unfortunately, it doesn't offer direct access to the BCM EEPROM to edit the lighting config.

    Have you contacted VLAND for advice as they seem to advertise both as 'plug and play'? Hopefully you won't need to mess with byte 18...

    Ah that makes a lot more sense, I will contact VLAND and see if they offer any advice. Just so i'm aware, which software (VCP/ODIS-e) would you recommend for accessing the BCM EEPROM? Just in case it comes to that. At least I can have a look at it.

    Really appreciate the help and advice. I'l post on here if I get any results

    ODIS-e is a dealer level tool so although garages/individuals can buy it, it's likely to be prohibitively expensive for a single for a single job.

    VCP is 3rd party tool and is closer to VCDS in cost. It has a built in editor for the lighting config but it's probably best to only use the backup/restore functions and use something like VAGhelper (again, 3rd party) to tweak the settings.

    A better plan might be to find someone local-ish with the right tools once the covid lockdown has passed in the UK. If you're in the East of England, drop me a PM

    I'm assuming that either of these programmes will require a different cable to my VCDS one? You might be right, it's going to be less of a pain and cheaper to get someone who knows what they're doing to take a look. Appreciate all the help 👍

    Correct, your VCDS cable won't work for either VCP or ODIS. Each requires it's own specific cable
