Can this be done on a 07MY car?

Cornering Lights via Front Fog Lights or would i need a new CECM

I think ive seen Seats and VWs the same age with it.

Would be a nice mod as i think it looks a treat!

Well if it helps at all i've had it activated in VCDS on my car but it's a 61 plate. As long as headlights are on the independant fog will light up according to the steering angle. Not sure if it activates when indicating before actually turning, don't think it does.

It wont work on earlier cars, facelifts with the newer CE board can be coded to work yes.

So what did you do to enable it then, just VCDS coding. what was the coding so i can try as it may work on early cars after all :)

Sorry I don't know as Trups did mine. It was one of the options and seemed very straight forward along with LED tail lights on with LED DRLs, gauges to light up, not just needles on ignition, tear drop sweep of rear wiper.

Ref newer CE on mid 08 onwards cars:

I have researched the new CE fitment to a prefacelift car, it is a massive job, 1 I have made spreadsheets for & still working out if its possible overall, the wiring involved is vast with 150 wires alone to change over along with merging the ce with the conv module, I plan to do at some point if I have time as it would take a week & would be based on a test run not permanent at 1st, massive job.

Could you email me an autoscan of your car Ryan please, as I have even facelift modules on my car, so why mine didnt work is strange.

I'm too faint hearted for that lol, unless the new model uses an upgraded version of the newer CE. :think:

Just seen your post Phil, my car has a high CECM but it's a 2006 (55 plate), you think it can be activated on mine?

I think this looks a bit weird, like a bulb's out when only one side lights up! If you want proper cornering lights buy a car with moving lights, otherwise this looks poorman as the fogs are fixed, so you may awell either just swith them on and have both "corners" always lit or leave them off IMO

The cornering lights actually moves with the steering wheel? I didn't know that, now I'm a bit curious as to how it'll look on fixed lights lol

the cornering lights work on pre and post facelift cars and it does look a bit odd sometimes when only one fog is iluminated as the steering wheel is turned . tbh you dont even notice there on as xenon lights seem to drown out the fog lights anyway.

not had chance to try on anything less than a 2007 . but for theyt few mins it takes to do if you have vcds then its worth a shot . just go on the 2007 instructions. see if the option is there in the long coding
