You have a 2012 model year.Mine are doing this, it's an intermittent flicker. Any advice, tips, suggestions?
Yes. I made the same mistake.I'm getting a "left reverse light not working" message and the bulb out light on the dash. [...] This happen to anyone else?
Did you turn off COLD Diagnostics on the Lights?Mine are doing this, it's an intermittent flicker. Any advice, tips, suggestions?
Light is now gone, thanks.Yes. I made the same mistake.
You need to clear all your error codes with VAG-COM once you're done.
Changing the wiring, if you did it prior to re-coding, makes the computer "think" you still have two reverse lights -- and that one of which is burned out. With proper re-coding, the computer now knows better; but the bulb-out error is still stored in memory until you clear it.
The rear fog on the R should be the same position as the rear fog on the OEM LED units. As long as you purchsed them with it on the same side. No addtional modifcations or coding is needed in that case of the rear fog. You will still need to run the two extra wires from each tail light to the CECM for the turn signals and you will still need to code the car for LED tails, plus disabled cold diag on ALL rear lights or you will have bulb out warnings.Finally getting around to replacing the OEM US tinted tail lights on my R32 with these. My only question is I already have a rear fog enabled and wired up to a Euro switch. Do I need to rewire or do anything with the new tail lights to enable the rear fog or is it just plug and play?
yes running the 2 wires did take an hour or so and I googled the J519 unit and got a screen grab so I could tell which is the correct connector to plug into since it's difficult to see under the dash. As long as you've got the correct connectors to plug into the harness it's not that difficult.I'm not sure. There were always various issues using wiring harnesses as shortcuts on either the Mk5 sedans or hatchbacks.
You've got the correct coding for Bytes (not bits) 09 through 13. Remember that the farthest-left byte is 00, and you have to count up from there -- so Byte 09 is actually the 10th one over. Yes?
In any case, the guaranteed way to get the lights to work on the Rabbit/GTI the way they were designed, is to run the 4th wire on each side. Pain in the ass with finding the correct connectors, but the worst part is working under the dash.
