I recently added 2 x LED strips to each footwell. They was originally made to plug into a lights outlet but I have wired them into the grey plug (pin 17) on the J519 module under the dash (drivers side) as per the OEM ones. I was hope they would work via the MMI screen. BUT I have turned on the ambient lighting function on the MMI via the green menu but it still doesn't work.
Question do I have to use VCDS to enable it on the car for it to work OR is there another problem as for why this wont work the way I intend?
Really appreciate any help on this as I am stumped.
Yes I seem to remember having to enable the lighting with VCDS (or other app) first. The Ambient lighting in the green menu will enable the screen that lets you adjust the brightness, but the feature needs to be enabled in the module that actually powers the lights too.
I thought so, I just had a few bits enabled on my car to but the only problem is the closest person I know is and hour away from me. I am looking for someone closer to pipe up just so I can get it enabled. It's all wired in already.
