I have successfully encoded the flashing of comfort turn signal.

I have a MY11 Golf MKVI purchased in February 2011, made after week 45, with European specifications, and through the VCDS (first with the 10.63 and after with the 11 beta) adapted the channel for 4 flashes and recorded (without errors) and did not change (although the scan appeared to the value 4 instead of 3).

Yesterday, through the FIS (I have factory-installed premium FIS), turn off the flashing of comfort turn signal and I went to turn on ..... and finally it works!

Now I have 4 intermittent flashes.

I hope that helps
Well, you inspired me to try again on my MY11 NA Golf TDI, but no luck.

What is FIS? Is that the same as the MFI?

Can you post an autoscan?

What happens if you try to change the number of flashes to another value -- does it take it immediately, or do you have to cycle the engine multiple times?

HOLY CRAP I GOT IT TO WORK

1. Change the number of flashes to the desired number. Close out VCDS.

2. On the MFI, Navigate to Settings --> Light & Vision --> Factory Setting

3. At the prompt "Set to factory settings for lights & vision?", select OK.

4. Marvel in amazement as the turn signal magically flashes 1, 2, 4, or 5 (yes 5) times.

No more, uh, tired left index finger for me! :beer:

I have a 2011 Golf TDI, North American, build date 7/2010.

Here's my autoscan, not that it's likely that relevant:

Hi! This sounds like good news. Do the 2011 clusters have the menu like this "Comfort light"?

http://i778.photobucket.com/albums/yy64/Dana_at_Ross-Tech/Cluster/Complete/DSC02301.jpg

If the setup is different and this is the fix, please post a picture and I'll link it from the sticky.
Yes, I can confirm that my car looks similar to that.

Here is a more detailed version of the procedure that I followed, with pictures from my MFI:

AFTER changing the desired # of flashes using VCDS, disconnect the cable and cycle the ignition for good measure. (I did not start the engine, as others have reported.) Re-insert the key to the ACC position if you haven't already.

Then, on the dashboard MFI, navigate to "Settings":




Click "Lights & Vision" (highlighted above). This takes you to the following submenu (your options may be different; e.g., "Coming home" is not enabled by default):



Click "Factory setting" (highlighted above). This takes you to this submenu:



Click "OK" (highlighted). This seemingly does nothing, and takes you back up to the parent menu.

Once you have done this, the # of flashes you set in VCDS will work correctly. From what I could tell, nothing else is changed -- I had guessed that I would have to re-enable "Coming home", for example, but it left all that stuff alone.

Obviously, this additional step is only required for some 2011s.


Just my observations:
I've noticed sporadic reports of people having had success by flashing it multiple times, turning the engine off and on, etc. In my experience with embedded controllers and the like, sometimes they can be a little "squirrelly", and the VAG ECU seems to be no different. With VAGCOM, I've found you have to very deliberate/slow, changing one thing at a time, disconnect and power cycle between each change, and so forth. If you go too fast, you can get unpredictable results, and simply cycling the ignition or re-flashing a code fixes it. I bet the folks who have had success by flashing multiple times, etc. basically took advantage of a bit of instability in the PIC and effected a reset without knowing it, perhaps.

Here's what really intrigues me though. I wonder what other settings can be enabled on the mk6 using this general procedure (VCDS + MFI reset). There are many interesting-looking settings I have found in VCDS that don't seem to do anything when I toggle them, so I switched them back -- but I wonder if I should try these settings in combination with the MFI reset as well.....

phatz314, U da Man!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

This has been a source of frustration for while now.

All I had to do to get this to work was reset lights to factory settings since I had already coded VCDS to a value of 5, many months ago.

This is on a 2011 GTI.

Awesome, this is the first confirmation I've gotten that this works on another vehicle! :thumbup:

Still thinking it's a bug with the rev 0615 BCM, but it sounds like this is a workaround for at least some vehicles.

I agree, that factory default cluster options seem to resolve buggy problems after coding on the 2010 cars too.
i.e. If you change cluster coding and the units (speed/time/temp) don't display properly until the car is put to sleep or the defaults are selected.


I changed the link to that post, thanks for the pictures and detailed explanation!
  • Comfort Turn signals
    Found in Adaptation. From the drop down list, choose the number of flashes and Save.


Note: 2011 owners may want to see: This thread

On another note, and possibly another thread, do your fogs as cornering lights work as I described here?:
  • Cornering Lights via Front Fog Lights active
    Found in Coding, Long Coding helper

Notes: The lights may work under the following conditions:

  1. The headlights must be turned on and the steering wheel must be in the turning direction.
  2. Headlights on, fogs off, turn signal on in the turning direction. Also see Byte 17, Adaptive Light/Cornering Light Variant. This seems to control the fogs as cornering lights with turn signal.
Some owners have reported that the mentioned Byte 17 coding doesn't alter the turn signal operation, but I don't recall if this is with Halogen and Xenon cars or not?

Yes, I just checked, and my fogs-as-cornering-lights work as you described. And, I can confirm that they work the same as they did before this "mod".

My vehicle has xenons + the stock North American headlight switch.

So, explicitly speaking, if and only if the headlights are ON and the fogs are OFF, one single fog light will illuminate if I (1) engage the turn signal in that direction, or (2) turn the wheel in that direction. FWIW, the cornering light doesn't work if you just tap the turn signal stalk (i.e., comfort turn signals).

Thanks again phatz, I got the comfort turn signals to work with 5 blinks on my 2011 GTI using your method. Like dmichael, I already had it coded to 5 so all I had to do was reset to factory in the MFI. Using Xenons + Euro switch.

When I get home, I'm going to see if I can get the fogs as cornering lights to not come on with turn signals using the same method.

I attempted this on a my 2010 A3, if I set it and don't turn the car off, the setting sticks. I had set it to 5 blinks, now if I shut the car off and restart then it only flashes 3 times, even with the adaptation set for 5. I'm not seeing any way to do a Factory Reset from the menu. :-(

I did this on my 2011 JSW aka Golf Variant. It's manufactured 11/2010 and has the same Lights/Vision MFD as pictured above (but without the Coming Home option).

I did NOT have to reset the factory settings. I set it to 5, saved and it stayed, even after a few power cycles.

Interesting, maybe there was a bug and they cut in a fix. Mine was built 7/2010.

Just out of curiosity, what BCM version do you have, later than 0615?

Edit: oh I see you have a Jetta, that could be the difference

With the car ignition in ACCESSORY mode I made the change from 3 to 5 signals and it worked. I didn't have to cycle the key or anything.

All I did was reprogram via vag-com, reset to factory defaults the lighting options and bam it was done.

5 is perfect :laugh:

JSW = Golf.

I'd note that I had previously set my cluster to UK to turn off those annoying seat belt and door open chimes. I'm not sure if this had anything to do without having to do factory default, or if later manufacturing date has this bug fixed.
