    Coming home lights

    Hi all,
    did a search, but can only find info on this for B7. I'm wondering if its possible for the foglights to come on when I unlock car and remove key from ignition for say 60 seconds?
    I have an 03 cab.
    i'm not bothered that it will activate during daylight (not a problem!). Can it be done cheaply/easily as I used to have this on my B8, and didn't realise how useful it was until I no longer had it!

    Thanks for any info

    From memory, I think you need the windscreen with built in sensor for autolights/wipers for this to work.

    I aren't bothered about auto lights, or whether it comes on only in the dark. All I want is every time I unlock the car, my foglights come on for 60 seconds. Similarly, everytime I stop the car and take my key out of the ignition, the fog lights come on for 60 seconds.
    I wouldn't have thought a light sensor was needed for this as it isn't dependent on light?
    There is a bit of mention about this on the B7 forum, and I took the implication that it was easier on a B6 than a B7 to do this?
    Any ideas?

    You need a specific Central electrics module to be able code it in/switch it on.

    I was wanting mine to do the same but ive not got the rite unit.

    You want the lights to come on in the day too?

    Not bothered if the lights come on in the day too! I live up north so it's dark for 6 months of the year anyway!
