Vehicle Lights: Malfunction!


Registered User

I’ve had this warning message ping up for a while now. Initially I believed it to be a simple bulb out/near end of life warning, but after reading the vehicle manual the addition of the words ‘lights malfunction’ points towards the switch or headlights.

I have the xenon factory lights setup, and no visible error is present. Both bulbs operate, both drls operate, the shutters for main beam both work. Anyone had any experience of what’s most likely at fault here? I’ve had great help from vwaf on what a code read may tell me, however since then I’ve managed to narrow the issue to headlights or switch only.

Code reads cost, so if there’s a chance the switch is at fault, I’d happily change that first and take a chance.

Thanks. Paul.
