Coming Home & Leaving Home Lights Enabled
I was over at my parents' house this afternoon waiting for my brother arrive down with my new FBMFSW (I got it delivered to him during the week) and got a bit bored, so I decided to have a go at getting the Coming Home & Leaving Home Lights to work. My car didn't have them from the factory and I'd seen them on my brother and father's GTIs.
The only thing you need for the mod is one repair wire and access to VAGCOM.
I already had the required repair wire left over from my Aux-In install on my RNS-e a couple of weeks ago (which I got for free) so the total cost of this mod was zero.
Head on over to my retrofit site for the full guide.
The sidelights, dipped lights and tail lights turn on once you turn the ignition off and remove the key and stay on for the period you define in VAGCOM.
When you unlock the car the same lights come on and stay on until one of the following three events occur:
1) You open the driver's door
2) You lock the car again
3) The period specified in VAGCOM elapses.
Any questions on the install just ask.
