Led 2016 led rear light upgrade

Post by Lewis1983 » Sun Feb 03, 2019 6:48 am

Hi guys

I have ordered some 2016 rear lights for the caddy and they arrive Monday so was hoping to get them installed first thing

I know some coding needs to be done, but I have borrowed VCDS for few hours off friend of a friend so I am stuck.

I know there is a thread about this but I am waiting to be upgraded at the moment so I can't access at present

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Don't know if there's a thread with details on coding for LED rear lights, there was some photos of them in a thread but I don't recall any mention of coding requirements.

That's for the Caddy4 rear light, I know because I wrote that how-to.
This guy is asking about some LED rear lights, I assume the Chinese version that's for sale on eBay.

Maybe he thinks the new ones are led?

I wonder why the new style lights didn’t have and foam around the outside like the old ones did?

Let's just wait until the guy replies. I've taken his post as it is written, not assuming he's confusing anything for something it's not.
