    Hi Guys,

    Ive been away from the forum for long time and came on as i noticed a number of new audi's driving around with LED reg lights. I figured that someone must have given it ago on here and you never fail to amaze me!

    So can someone help and let me know if i can order the A5 Led replacements for my A3 Black Edition?

    Its a 59 plate but was delivered in Jan 2010 if this helps.

    Thanks in advance!

    Nick

    I am also interested in finding this out. I have a 2012 A3 Black edition.

    Also I wondered how you contact TPS for part prices?

    Cheers,

    Forgive my ignorance, but i have no idea how what constitutes a MY10+ car.

    I would also challenge any new comer to this forum to have the faintest idea what has just gone on over the last 8 pages!

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Basically read the last few pages... You buy the part numbers suggested but to get them to work you need to get them coded to the car.

    The coding is only available on the newer CE boards, it does show up on newer cars in VCDS now, its an option that would tell the car that circuit is running led's as in it will either lower the tolerance required to consider a bulb blown or it will disable that system check feature, so it doesnt check when cold or hot circuit, I'm going with the 1st option so it still knows if its working or not.

    Its just pure luck the tolerance on some older cars is good enough to notice the led's fall within spec to not trigger the bulb blown warning.

    N8 your car will need to have circuit modification, resistor pack probably added imho, to get rid of the warnings if its triggering yours.

    You said it wasnt working on mine, so by that assumed you meant the led's were warning on your dis.

    Yes the Audi LEDS aren't working and I have an error light, but my old LED bulbs work without a hitch.

    N8, adjust the clips on there to make sure the prongs are making contact, all the ones i have fitted didnt work without adjusting and they should work.

    Go through your module coding & check for the tick box for led lights installed, if its not shown, its more than likely its not available on that board, although sometimes there are tickboxes not shown for your module that may work with manual hex coding, but you have to be careful you dont code something thats not reversable.

    You footwell lights as LED wont error in the DISm there is something else causing that error.

    With the coding when changing, try change the code then clink onto another byte rather than pressing ok as it sometimes wont change.

    N8, you need you just bend them higher and they will work for you bud.

    So after spending hours playing round with my new VCDS lead (Thanks NHN!) I've finally got the bulb warning to turn off in my DIS!


    So for all you people who want to try it take a look at this how to!


    So first of all after you have ordered your OEM LED's 4H0 943 021 and 4H0 943 022 remove your old lamp units and COMPARE them. You will see that the LED ones have shorter contacts.


    Bend the contacts to a straighter alignment so they look similar to this:





    Then install them into place. You can use them like this but you will get a DIS warning.


    .


    CODING.


    I have to thank lala30 for the research he did as i wouldn't have been able to put this together without his research.


    So boot up your VCDS and head on over to 09 - Central electrics module.


    Check for any fault codes before you start.


    Open up the Long coding and then long code helper, make a copy of your long code in paragraph1) (keep it somewhere safe)


    Click on byte 17 in paragraph 3)


    Right the key here is that if you look at my screen shot i HAVEN'T got Bit 7 (The one you meet to sellect to turn off bulb monitoring), the key here is to ignore the bits and look at the binary box this is where i have got 8 bits (0-7) so turning the first digit to '1' is the equivilant to ticking the bit box '7' (Binary is read backwards and starts at 0)


    BEFORE





    AFTER





    Close the Long code helper and save the code.


    After this i turned the ignition off and back on again, turned the lights on and…………………………….. NO BULB WARNINGS!!!


    I have a 2012 sport back BE so i don't know if this method will work with all but hey, worth a try in it!!!!!


    Thanks again to lala!

    Tried to get them working on my 53reg A3 ready for Aitp but had mixed results. Left one wouldn't light up at all but the right one flickered, stayed on for a few seconds then nothing. Any ideas?
