    Turn off LED and use turn signal as DRL?

    Anyone know if it is possible to recode the DRL's so I get the turnsignals stay on instead of the LED strip on the B8?
    Like this:


    I know it is possible on Golf MK5, Some Audi A3's and Audi A4 B7.

    Haven't heard of a request like this before. Are you sure it can be done on an A3?

    Not the newest A3 with LED's. It is something about using canadian light set up instead of European(like mine is)

    My S3 is that era and there's no option on VCDS for Canadian. Just Scandinavian (DRLs plus tail lights) or North American (DRLs only)

    Anyway sorry I can't help mate.

    NHN. Thank you I will try this next time I connect vcdc to my car. But are there any place to se how I do long coding? I have to admit I don't know how to do it without the long coding helper
    I have only used that when coding.

    That was just an excerpt from long coding label file, you will still use long coding to do this change anyway mate so dont panic

    Just found this on A6retrofit.tripod.com if its any help

    Daytime running lights behaviour: Daytime running lights (DRLs) behave differently in different markets, for example the front LED light strips that accompany Xenon lights turn off or dim in some markets when blinking/signalling. Aerodave on A5OC.com has researched this and posted his experiences here: http://www.a5oc.com/forums/showthrea...468/index.html. In short, he reports that changing Central Electronics 09, Submodule 0 (Master Cent. Elec. box, rather than a slave module), Byte 3 (fourth from the left), Bit 7 (first bit from the left in the binary representation, bottom check box in the VAG-COM long coding helper) is the key. If set to 1, setting it to 0 makes the DRLs stay on when signalling. Thanks to Aerodave and please see the full thread for more!

    Aerodave - thanks! - sent this great list of additional bits you can toggle and turn to change the DRL behaviour.

    For submodule 0:

    Byte 02
    bit 0 -
    bit 1 - front side markers as DRL
    bit 2 - headlights as DRL
    bit 3 - fog lights as DRL
    bit 4 - LED strip as DRL
    bit 5 -
    bit 6 - side markers as DRL
    bit 7 - tail lights as DRL

    Byte 03
    bit 0 -
    bit 1 -
    bit 2 - LEDs remain at full brightness with parking lights
    bit 3 -
    bit 4 - Turns off DRLs when checked
    bit 5 -
    bit 6 -
    bit 7 - Turn off LED-strip DRL with turn signal (dim LED if front side marker also selected as DRL)

    Byte 10
    bit 3 - Set to 0 to disable amber side markers (U.S. vehicles)

    See also: http://www.a5oc.com/forums/showthrea...490/index.html

    Apparently Ross-Tech have added long coding helper labels for A5 Central Electronics module in later versions of their VAG-COM/VCDS software. The downside of this seems to be that you can not easily edit bits unknown to the software, like the bits controlling some aspects of day-time running light behaviour (previously they just had checkboxes without labels for easy changing). If you need to change these bits using VAG-COM and you can't see the easy checkboxes in your version, you need to edit either the module coding binary representation or the bytes manually. Aerodave reporrts here http://www.a5oc.com/forums/showthrea...x.html?p=39477 that you also need to hit tab, up or down after entering bits or byte manually in order to save them before exiting the long coding helper.

    If you choose to edit individual bytes, some instructions: When you need to change, say, bit 1 in Central Electronics submodule 0 byte 02 (front side markers as DRL) make note of the value displayed for byte 02 currently in the long coding helper. It is a byte displayed in hexadecimal numbers, ranging from 00 to FF (that is 0 to 255 in "regular" numbers, hex values just use letters A to F in addition to numbers). You will need to take the hex value of byte 02, convert it to binary representation, i.e. bit form (a byte consists of eight bits so the resulting "bit form" would be something like 10010001, eight zeros or ones), change the bit you want to change, and convert the bits back to a hex value that you can enter to the VAG-COM software in place of the old hex value.

    I will try this next time I bring the VagCom to my car
    This is how it looks on a MK6 golf and the coding.

    Might ask you for some Golf 5 screen dumps of modules if you dont mind.

    yes

    Module 9 activate Byte 10 bit 0 (change to 1)
    Then go to byte 2 bit 6 and activate that one (change to 1).

    Thanks to DavidB8 on Audizine for help with this.

    Hi guys. I am new to this forum, it's very helpful and I have already found the answers to some of my questions.
    I know now how to put the Xenons in to the Tourist mode to drive in Europe.
    The questions I couldn't find the answers on this forum are:

    1.Is it possible to have the tail LED lights as the DRL's and if yes how to do it.

    2. Is it possible to have the mirrors automatically folded when I lock the car/activate the alarm and opened when I switch the ignition on (I think it should be possible as I have had a loan car which had this function). How to do it?

    3. How to make the mirrors tilt when I choose reverse.

    I have an Audi A6 Avant Le Mans 2.0Tdi Multitronic 2009 (C6 F4)

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Serge

    know this is a really old thread, but has anyone tried this on a 8p3?

    Given turn signals are used for that very thing, you may get pulled by the polizia for lights being on constantly, question is, why would you even want to consider yellow/orange lights on all time, the led drl's are far better.

    hehe, it seems er have different opinions in the UK and Norway.
    Crisp white and blue are played out... GIMME SOME ORANGE LEDS AND SUM 1000K HIDS!...just kiddin, but i kinda like the look

    I would like it as sidelight, when im parked with like 10%-20% brightness. Police cba unless i drive with it imo.
