Retrofit Automatic Light control

Post by larcho » Wed Sep 11, 2019 3:15 am

I own a 2019 Polo Comfortline fabricated in Brasil, I know a few components are probably different from the Euro version but I'm thinking there shouldn't be too many differences. I'd like to add automatic light control to my Polo.
I've seen a lot of these aftermarket solutions that come with an integrated light sensor, but I'd like to go to something more factory set:
I checked my light switch knob and it seems it's the older/classic kind of switch with the big connector, which makes me believe the lights are not controlled by the BCM, so for starters, I need to upgrade/move the lights to be controlled by the BCM, is this even possible?

Thanks in advance!

Just to shed some more light to my current situation. My BCM model number is: 2QW937090A, fabricated in Mexico, I assume these are used throughout South America.
The 090 at the end gives me a bit of hope as it's of my understanding that the 90 there should stand for the most equipped version. BUT I notice that the 3rd socked (C) is not connected and empty (without pins).

By the way, I just found this post: https://www.team-bhp.com/forum/diy-do-y ... alled.html he seemed to successfully move the light control to the BCM. Does Ciclo still provide wiring support?
