Hi all

I’ve spent the last few days going through the forums & haven’t managed to find a resolution so I’m hoping someone may be able to help!

I’ve recently completed a facelift conversion on my 2006 a3 8p to the 2009 model. I’ve managed to get the indicators on the mirrors working correctly but I’ve been having issues with my headlights (not xenons).

When I installed the headlights only the main beam was working & I was getting faults for parking light left and right not working. I saw on a forum that it said to move a pin from one port to another. I have done this and now my DRL’s are acting as my sidelights.

I have purchased a light switch which includes DRL’s on the first twist and installed.

Here is a list of what my lights do:

DRL: Main beam + DRL
Side light: DRL
Main beam: DRL + Main beam

Hoping someone can get me to the bottom of this

TIA

Joe

Does the headlight switch have an extra 2 pin connector on the rear, if so, that is the wrong 1 for a start that only facelift cars with 063 CE modules support.

Wiring changes & coding has to be done, it's not just plug in & hope for the best.

Will check if it has a connector on the rear, any idea in terms on what coding on vagcom as a good friend of mine has it.
