    Mk7 GSW disabling DRL

    I am trying to disable the DRLs but unlike my Mk5 Rabbit where there was a bit you could uncheck in the 09-Cent. Elect. controller, I don't see that here. Is there any way of doing it on the new Mk7s?
    I also noticed, when looking through the 17-Instruments controller that Byte 4, Bit 7 is checked (AWD installed) and this is not a awd car. Is there a reason that would be checked?

    nacg8or: Hello. Yes, as you have already observed, the lighting stuff on a mk7 is managed very differently to your mk5!. In your mk7, these facilities are still controlled by the 09-Cent. Elect. module (this forum tends to use the term BCM for this controller), but instead of using the Byte/Bits in the coding string, the swiches have been embedded into the module's adaptation channels. In fact, if you look at the admaps for the control modules on your mk7, you will be impressed by the total number of adaption channels that the car has - it's about 3,500 in my modestly equipped mk7!

    So, back to your question. If you just want to disable the DLRs (incidentally, you should check that doing this is legal in your local area before making the alteration), then try the following:

    1. Select 09 - Central Elect control module
    2. Select Security Access - 16 from the "Open Controller" screen
    3. Enter the magic number 31347 and return to the "Open Controller" screen
    4. Select Adaptation - 10 from the "Open Controller" screen
    5. Enter ENG115833 into the search box and from the pull-down button select IDE06864-ENG115833-Daytime running lights-Fahrlicht bei Tag
    6. Change setting to not active (see picture below),

    Don

    PS: The tweak instructions above will permanently remove DRLs. Another, perhaps more elegant method of doing something similar is to enable a DRL switch on the MENU screen that allows the driver to choose which mode to use (i.e. DRL-on, of DRL-off). If you prefer this alternative, then see the instructions HERE

    Thanks for the info Don. I also looked at the multi function display and noticed you couldn't control DRLs from there either but if there is a way of adding it to the menu, that is great. I did look briefly at the adaptation channels and you need several hours to go through all that. Lol. I will take a look at your suggestions tomorrow and see how that goes.

    As far as my post regarding the fog light installation from the other thread, my car is definitely not equipped with a BCM that supports front fog lights. I saw that indicated in the Central Electrics controller, and that is unfortunate. It is odd that you can enable the rear fog light if you have tail lights that have it but you need an upgraded BCM to run front fog lights.

    nacg8or: hm............. how did you deduce that the BCM can't accommodate front fog lights? Can you post-up an autoscan please?

    I was trying to post a snapshot image of the module for the front fogs not being supported but can't seem to get it to work. At any rate, Byte 7 in the 09 module has no bit 3 check box and the text reads "Front fog lights are NOT supported by this Contol Module".

    That said, here is the auto scan.

    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.

    We will likely publish an update shortly and I've made some additions so that most modules will be covered with that new data version. Thanks for reporting this, your feedback is much appreciated.

    Sebatian: guten Morgen. A question please - why does the second setting descriptor in my picture (post #2) incorrectly identify "daytime running lights" when this setting applies low-beams as DRLs?

    Please double check that with VCDS 16.8.2 or newer once it's out and let us know...
