    Right. It is not possible to do this via coding!

    BCM Pin A59 ----> plate lights
    ....................|
    ....................|
    ....................X----> side markers

    What a beatiful ASCII wiring diagram.

    What you could do is pinning the side markers at an empty BCM Pin. Then you can control it via coding. For this you have to find the connection...

    Yay! Haha... Thanks for confirming. I will most likely open up the headlights this weekend and see if I can't unplug them manually as I think that would be an easier route to take. Will report back!

    What do you think you have to do in your situation to get them on? Maybe the plugs are just dangling and have to be connected

    The priority of the "Light function" go from H to A where H > A.

    Wow...what a mess.
    So somehwere is a hard-wiring from plate lights to side markers. I gues somewhere near the BCM.
    Haldez: hmm........... not sure that retaining the "beidseitiges Dauerparklicht" command in any way helps AidiSport solve the problem of the lamps being constantly illuminated. With the removal of this command from the Leuchte-set, at least Aidisport's problem is now reduced to the lamps only illuminating when low beams are switched-on. Beyond this, and as I have already suggested COMPLETE disablement of the lamps needs physical disconnections.

    Minor update - went to go open up the headlights last weekend and unplug them (if possible) and of course the bumper has to come off... I already have my B5 S4 apart so I can't have both of my Audi's in shambles... Hopefully I build up the anger one day to get the headlights out and see if I can unplug somehow. If I got as far as taking the bumper off, headlight out, and I couldn't turn those bulbs off I'd probably burn it to the ground!

    Oh - question .. So when I realized the bumper had to come off and I got down on my knees and cried to Audi - I was thinking - will that wiring diagram help me figure out which pin it is in the headlight plug? If so, can't I just unplug it from there rather than cutting my hands inside the housing?

    It should. I think we decided the bulbs in question are M33/34 (.. near this time frame http://forums.ross-tech.com/showthre...l=1#post111603 ) in which case T14b/8 could be pulled from the main headlight connector if you have tools to unlock the terminal.

    So is this all that is needed to disable the ambers?



    ENG116961-ENG116358-Leuchte25KZL HA59-Lichtfunktion E 25 to not active,

    and to clean-up the hanging auxiliary command - also change:
    ENG116961-ENG116360-Leuchte25KZL HA59-Dimmwert EF 25 to 0

    According to what we know now: yes, this should do the job.

    And how do I dim the LED DRL's when my headlights are on? I want them to omit a light glow as to not take away from the Xenons.

    Have you tried the latest suggestion there? If so, why not post results there and continue from that?
