    Ignition On / Key Inserted Warning

    Hey guys

    I was wondering if anyone knows how to switch this off either using the DIS or vag-com?

    I know it has a purpose to remind you that you're keys are still in. But considering i have an expensive car i wouldn't really forget to take them out.

    When i park it and need to quickly run to the boot for instance i find the noise a little annoying.

    Did try to search the forum and the vagcom thread but alas nothing.

    Cheeeeers.

    I'm not sure you can, I've never seen it documented as something that can be changed.

    Naa my lights are auto. So no warnings from that side.

    Its when the keys are literally left in the barrel. You open the door. The DIS shows "Keys left in the ignition" or something to that affect.
