    Found these on aliexpress they show a LED in the keyless entry module ! The LED may be there in our cars but it is blocked by the door handle trim or can be added to the module .

    There’s no hole or cut out like on the a6 where the light comes through. Need to look into this further

    Did you have to do any coding when hooking up the ambient lighting stripes to the rear door modules or do they just work? Thinking about upgrading the rear door modules and afraid can't access it without ODIS...

    I don’t have the coding for the rear modules. From what I have discussed on here the software in them need to be flashed . This is somthing that @DJAlix has said he can do, but I haven’t had a chance to meet with him yet .

    Is your rear ambient lighting working now? Adjustable from the MMI menu?

    The front is tied into the B@O light pipe and works fine . The rear I am waiting on The coding but it is also paired with the light pipe I added . The custom front stuff I made is tied into the footwell illumination. The front stuff is adjustable via the menu as it is just connected to existing lights . The tears will be too once the module has been coded . It works on the test mode at the moment but not controlled by the MMI so I know my circuits are good and it is just a software thing

    As far as I understand they need to be flashed with the same perimeters as the modules that have ambient lighting

    Your rear door module 5Q0959595E is for ambient lighting already, my guess would be you need to code 5F to tell it ambient lighting is installed rather than coding the door modules itself?

    No I have turned it on in the module but @DJAlix said something else needed to be done or I have missed something.....

    @larbel @jrumball Do you guys happen to know the part number for the connector and/or pins required to retrofit the illuminated door inlays? I have a set on order but realized I didn't order a harness.

    Hello , does anyone have a tutorial how to add ambient lighting to dash trims?
    Or add illumination behind 3D dash trims?
    I found these trims with led lights searching to google , looked oem but there are not exist acording audi oem parts.
    Any DIY work about adding fiber led to trims would be acceptable.
    Last pic is my interior but missing the dash illumination i am looking for.

    The dashboard exists but they’re rare and supposedly for cab and LHD only, instead of LED lightbar at the bottom, the whole thing lights up. Good luck finding them tho and even if you do, you wouldn’t find door trims to match unless you have a cabriolet...

    Is this not possible just translucent trim that has been lit from behind ? Maybe a solution for retrofit.... May give that a go =)

    Tons of ppl in China added LEDs to the 3D trims and I can get them pretty cheap, but they're all LHD :(
