    Hello guys,

    I am new to this forum. And I watched you "myturbodiesel" chanel on YouTube. You are great. I sold Porsche Cayenne GTS 2008 and bought VW Touareg 3.0 TDI Individual. It is so more comfortable than Cayenne.

    Now I have question. :)

    I have installed LED bulbs in all taillight places. And of course I now have light error on dash. Although bulbs are canbus but for some reason it keeps popping up.

    I have watched VCDS coding for led taillights but I don't have that byte on my unit. Central El. Etc... So can you help me with my problem?

    Regards

    Welcome to the forum. welcometomyturbodies

    Personally I wouldn't bother with LED lights. I did a VCDS scan on mine the other day and is picked up.

    VAG Error Code: 00109


    Fault Location:
    Turn Signal Lamp: Driver, Left Mirror (L131) - Electrical Fault in Circuit

    Possible Cause:
    Wiring/Connector(s).
    Voltage Supply for Left Mirror, Driver, Turn Signal Lamp (L131) faulty.
    Left Mirror, Driver, Turn Signal Lamp (L131) faulty.

    Possible Solutions:
    Check/Replace all faulty Wiring/Connector(s).
    Check Voltage Supply for Left Mirror, Driver, Turn Signal Lamp (L131).
    Check Left Mirror, Driver, Turn Signal Lamp (L131) Operation.

    As taken from my new Free EOBD II Error Codes software

    The lamp flashes the same both sides. These are LED bulbs and they don't do a replacement you have to buy a new light assembly which is a waste of money for just a bulb. I was told the other day that the rear fog lamp bulb it LED, again no bulb you have to buy a new light unit. That's VW arseholes for you.

    Thank you for trying to HELP AND RESOLVE ISSUE. But does anybody of you knows what byte and bit is like on Golf Vi? I suppose it is way different but maybe someone will now.
    13Tdidude I know everything of LEDs because I work with the over 7 years. I am exclusive distributor for South East Europe of one big factory in China. I just need directions of coding to try to resolve this problem.

    Watch YouTube video VW GTI: Ep. 79 OEM LED tails installation and coding to see what I want. You definitely don't understand my question.
