    Hi

    Does anybody know how to make the interior light stay on longer when you open the car. They only stay on 30-45 sec before dimming down.

    Just is a bit of a pain when trying to load the car in the dark.

    Any help would be great.

    all I can find bud are the vcds codings for dimming value:

    Adaptation
    Channel 001-004: Personalization - Key 1-4
    +00001 = Passenger Door
    +00002 = Rear Left Door
    +00004 = Rear Right Door
    +00008 = Luggage Compartment
    +00016 = Auto-Lock/Unlock
    +00032 = Comfort Opening of Front Window Regulators
    +00064 = Comfort Opening of Rear Window Regulators
    +00128 = Comfort Opening of Sunroof
    +00256 = Rear Shade automatic
    +00512 = Interior Light Dimming 1 %
    +01024 = Interior Light Dimming 2 %
    +02048 = Interior Light Dimming 4 %
    +04096 = Interior Light Dimming 8 %
    +08192 = Interior Light Dimming 16 %
    +16384 = Interior Light Dimming 32 %
    +32768 = Interior Light Dimming 64 %
    Note: Adaptation value is the sum of the individual options.

    Therefore if you have any of the functions above already active you need to include them in the new adaptation value - so say you wanted dimming at 1% (00512) and comfort opening of sunroof (00128) then you add these together (00640) which then includes both these options, just add up the ones you want and pump that number into the adaptation channel and save it.

    Right i have just double checked my car when the doors are open the lights still dimm out but the boot will stay on as long as boot is open.

    The Adaptations would be great if i had VAG-COM, thanks.

    Think i really need to get the software downloaded.
