    Its a doddle mate. Will take a competent VCDS user minutes to give you the unlock/lock beep feature..........if you have the facility available within the module. I know the newer cars have it as its one of the most popular things that people want doing.

    I've done the lock/unlock beep on mine.

    If I remember correctly, you go through 46 Central Convenience, Long Coding, can't remember which Byte (might be Byte 7) but click through them until you find the option Locking/unlocking confirmation (horn) via remote control. Tick those boxes and save. Pretty simple but if you're worried, just take a note of what you clicked so you can easily just change it back if its wrong.

    Also, here's a little guide to follow for the Coming Home lights cominghomelights - Audi Retrofit

    Double check your coding and is your wire earthed? As it only needs to be touched once to turn on as I found out on here, I then taped it up

    My wire isn't earthed anymore seems to be the leaving home lights only work if you haven't locked the car within a set time just unlocked it now and it worked. However if I unlock it then lock it without opening the doors they go out immediately once locked I think they are meant to work like this ?
