    Hi all


    I am trying to enable 'side markers' lights on my halogen headlights when dipped beam is on. As you can see from enclosed photos the DRL strip on halogen lights is made of two parts - the left 'side marker light' and right part DRL part. During the day both parts are on as a DRL strip. However, when dipped beam is on only the right side of the strip works. I think it would look better if both parts were on and looking for a mod in VCDS. Any help would be appreciated. I have tried all options which mention DRL/side markers to no avail.

    Hey thanks for quick reply, only way I could enable it was to change the 6th digit from 0 to 1, but now I don't have high beam even when I change it back!!!!

    The Bit 6 seems to be changed correctly. That is the only change I made to make mine to work. I'm in Cardiff UK :)

    Anyway, check the link below for full description (it's post no 16):

    code for halogen drl

    Unfortunately I am not able to check my settings at the moment so you have to keep trying. I should be able to check it for you after the weekend if that's of any use.
