    Hi i have just installed the rear led lights from KUFATEC (2008 sportback )
    They went in no problem , but i need them vag com coding to clear the bulb error in the display. Any one that can do it local ? , theres a drink in it !

    I am going to get a lead my self but have to wait on delivery , so as of now my rear indicators are not working fully because of the faulty light in the display.

    That would be great if some one can help me out ?:respekt:

    Me :p

    But you dont need vagcom to clear the bulb light on the dash - it should go off once the new bulbs are fitted - you sure its wired in right.

    I done Blazin's not so long ago and his didnt have any dash errors - just needed to code them via vagcom and it worked.

    PM me and sure we can sort it!

    In Old Trafford BTW - not far from United ground!

    LOL - you guys! Nige - Understand ur pain mate - it breaks my heart too as i've left the Audi scene but cant bare to leave the forum... :sorry:
    and Nathan, find your cable mate as you can have a go next...

    The guy came round and it didnt work though.

    But the bulb errors came on the dash and it doesnt look like there's a kufatec loom in place.

    Anyone got pics of what the Kufatec loom looks like fitted to the lights as im pretty sure the bodyshop who fitted his lights didnt fit the loom :S

    It coded up fine but the indicator and other lights were still on but the LEDS werent :S

    ***EDITTED as god knows where half of my first line went :S

    Thanks to kaz for the coding , we are thinking there is no bloody loom in place, if you want a job doing , do it your self.
    Thanks again

    So they plugged & played or not as such, lol, typical, from an early age I always work by the routine of test your work before putting your tools away, how could they of tested if it isnt working.

    I've coded it with this:

    Byte 9 to Dec = 0 - as the final brake light
    Byte 10 to Dec = 0 - fog lamp as a taillight
    Byte 12 to Dec = 36 - dimming rear stand light

    Dont delete the original code mate - make sure its saved in your phone so you can put it back to standard!

    I thought the loom is plug and play though :S

    It just goes inbetween the connecting wires as far as i know :S

    I done Blazin's an his worked fine so there's no reason why yours shouldnt - its got to be the wires mate...

    Ahh right - As before, Blazin did the wires on his car and i just coded it.

    I thought it was plug and play but obviously not!

    Im sure i can give the wiring a shot but never done it before but Nathan has them on his A3 so better of going with him. If you have probs, Use Matt (Derbyshire) and failing that use Blazin and failing that, I'll give it a shot :D

    Nathan should be able to sort it though (providing he finds his wire). I did code it but did get errors as the lights werent wired up properly..

    It should get sorted..

    IIRC without the loom the lights wount work at all as the plugs are different. The looms are handed ie left and right they look the same but the pin configuration is different. So may be they installed the looms on the wrong side, did they wire the middle leds to the number plate lights. I hope you didnt pay them

    Im the other side of Buxton, 10mins from

    This may possibley be the prob as the LEDs didnt light up at all.

    And i doubt the number plate one is connected either as the LEDs didnt work on the lights on the bootlid.

    Me, if you drive to Venice, Italy, lol, dont trust these northerners with wires, cows maybe or sheep in N8's case, lol

    Nah Matt is the one up north to do for you as I'm in the south anyway when in UK or I'd help.

    Right - between Me, Patrick, Matt on the phone (and even a call to Nathan), we still didnt sort it :S

    So he's going off to see Matt and we're pretty certain he can get it sorted!

    Been a right nightmare these lights!

    Well looks like this one has beaten the forum , as i have no idea where to go from here apart from take it into audi , although i am sure they are going to question if they are a retro fit.

    If anyone is confident they can code them to work this weekend i will pay a handsome fee. To much stress now for me the novice !

    Matt , you are a legend Thanks again.

    Although when i left yours i have now a list of mods for you.

    Chrome TT air vents ( there are some on ebay at the moment but they look like the really old ones ?? am i right ?

    S3 chrome pedals
    Chrome light switch.
    facelift , switches below sat nav.
    S3 front bumper and s3 black grill

    Slightly gutted as i have just replaced mine with the standard black optics grill, but after seeing yours , need that s3 front end !

    As you say i can hopefully sell my phantom black 2008 front bumper and grill

    Happy for you to source the parts and fit.., i can arrange spraying of front bumper

    HURRY UP ! HURRY UP ! HURRY UP !

    Seriously thanks for this morning.

    Patrick
