    I switched my CECM and now the Lights don’t work

    Hi, my DRL switch has never brought the rear tail lights on before on my model. I followed this wiring. The pictures are for my exact CECM. I’m getting live feeds to the DRLs as well

    I switched my CECM and now the Lights don’t work

    I haven’t done yet mate, been busy this weekend. And my VCDS cable soon comes, and it will be a first time ever coding. And the reason my car wasn’t starting was fuel related if you will..... :/

    I switched my CECM and now the Lights don’t work

    I found out why the car was dead and it was a big school boy error, and I don’t feel like sharing why as it’s that embarrassing

    I switched my CECM and now the Lights don’t work

    Cheers mate but I would rather try myself. If they can do it, then there is no reason why I can’t, even if I have to learn the hard way. It’s all new experience to me but I’ve learnt so much in the last few months. I’ve made a lot of progress on my car this year at the cost of my hours, but I...

    I switched my CECM and now the Lights don’t work

    Little update. The car is dead....at the moment :/ Basically it starts up and then cuts out straight away. its been fine since I changed the cecm, but I fear the change is what might be causing the problem. Looking into it. Looks like it could be due to the key not being coded to the new CECM...

    I switched my CECM and now the Lights don’t work

    Hi mate So it was a friend who done the coding, but he copied the old module unique code and pasted it into the new one. Starting to think the cables are at the wrong pins for the new module. If it’s saying open circuit that must mean there is no connection/continuity But what exactly do you...

    I switched my CECM and now the Lights don’t work

    Cut a long story short. I installed Bi xenon headlights to the car. My CECM was not compatible for xenons. I changed the CECM to the correct model for my car that allowed Bi xenons. The Xenons work (except DRL, open circuit fault) But now my rear tail lights do not work. The break lights...

    HELP WITH HEADLIGHT SWAP ON A3 8P

    Hi mate if you don’t have the right control module, you can get a new one (recommending checking ebay) but only certain models of the control module will work with your car. And only certain modules allow for xenons You will need to check your MHz on your car key when you open it. They can range...

    Installing Bi-Xenon headlights

    Well after doing more research and wiring the cables into the cabin. Come to realise the pins I need to insert the cables to, are not on my model of CEM.... “8P0 907 063” (There is no letter at the end, where I have seen people have the CEM but with a letter at the end: “063A” ) So if I buy a...
