front fog lights

Post by daz-uk » Sat Jul 06, 2019 7:30 am

My 2014 caddy never had them fitted when I got it, if I fit some OEM ones, are they easy to wire in? and would they need codeing in?, my light switch in the cab has the symbol for front and rear fogs on it.

They are very easy to wire in, with the oem fog light loom.
I even make one....HERE
With this they are wired as from factory, and once coded, will show up bulb out warnings on dash etc, and can be further coded for cornering fogs too.
The problem may be that your BCM may not support fogs, you'll need to check that first. Try and get the part No. of it.

Do you know the correct part number for the BCM that supports fog lights etc?

There are a few. It generally needs to be a midline one or higher.
You need to replace with a Caddy specific one though. Ones from other VW's, even with the same part no. differ internally. This makes them scarce. (and why there is little information on them)
Best to see what you have first. Get the part No. ( mine for example is 5K0 937 086 S)
Even better disconnect the battery, remove the BCM, and check if it physically has any pins in T52a/25 (where the black plug goes, pin 25) and T52c/25 (where the brown plug goes, pin 25).
If you have vcds, you can also try coding for fogs, see if it accepts the coding
