    Anyhow, the tweak was originally intended (by dmc_) to disable the recent practice on your NAR mk7s, not to illuminate the cluster display when the rotary light switch was on the parking light position (hence the setting that is used : lds - which is what VW call their rotary light switch).

    On older model clusters for the mk7, the Illumination_algorithm-Scale_switching_algorithm isn't available-so I can't test my hypothesis. But there are other settings in the earlier adaptation channel which has the simpler descriptor illumination_algorithm. If the channel in the more modern version of the instrument cluster also have other options - you could experiment with these settings (I suspect) which may deliver a more appropriate lighting effect - maybe.

    Hi Don, yes, unfortunately it's not surprising that the original creator wasn't credited. I tried to do so by posting the link instead of copying/pasting the tweak, but of course I didn't know to go any deeper than that.

    With the setting at lds, the cluster lights are on in any position except "off". This is the first tweak I have seen that enables ALL of the cluster lights to be on in "auto" mode. I believe you have shared a tweak before that turned on the steering wheel and button lights but not the instruments.

    Unfortunately "lds" and "parking_light" were the only options on that channel.

    This worked for my MY16 octavia, I have re-posted it onto the briskoda forum for people there to see.

    Looks like I spoke too soon. It does NOT keep the steering wheel and button lights on during the day, and the media system goes back to day setting as normal.

I haven't tried any other adaptation channels, but I will do a little more experimenting...

    No fault code found.
    Did some Google searches yesterday and stumbled on this thread. This is also what I'm looking to do.

    Though just as I've quoted above I'm looking for a security access code that allows me to tweak the dimming_characteristic_curve_adjustment_internal_p hototransistor (x2-x5).

    I have a '17 GTI Sport trim.
    In for updates on this.

    Wouldn't the information for Security Access be in a Service Manual at a dealership, so anyone who works there would have access to the information?

    Sadly, no. That kind of stuff hasn't been in "Service Manuals" for more than 10 years now.

    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.

    So, as of now and in the foreseeable future, there's no way to get the security code?

    I absolutely hate the dimming of my dash :/

    Uwe: Shirley the SA must be embedded in the device that dealers use. I've had absolutely no experience with this device,and it might be an extremely naive question, but why can't the SA be "discovered" by examining this device?
