Footwell light polo AW 2018

Post by tfpc123 »

Hello guys
I'm new to the forum. My name is Tiago and I'm from Portugal.
I bought my VW Polo AW in 2018, and wanted to install lights on the feet (I'll buy the kit at carsystems). Has anyone here done this retrofit? I already went to Elsa online, but the information is wrong, because my BCM has 3 connectors, and in Elsa online says that my car only has 2 connectors, I do not understand why ...
I have connector A and C with 73pins and B with 46pins.
My BCM is 2Q0 937 089.

Maybe the following information may be helpful for you, it is applicable for the Golf mk7 and mk7.5, I don't know if it is applicable in the Polo AW.
Search term in BCM adaptation channels = FR

Footwell light = Fraumbeleuchtung

---------
Example for Golf:

Footwell lights + Ambient lights (2 front + 2 rear ... Ref: 5G0947409)

Address 09, SECURITY ACCESS--> 31347
Adaptation

Leuchte30FR LC72-Lasttyp 30,not active ,16 (36-LED Kleinleistung)
Leuchte30FR LC72-Fehlerort mittleres Byte DTC-DFCC 30,00 ,16 (02)
Leuchte30FR LC72-Lichtansteuerung HD AB 30,Always ,16 (Always)
Leuchte30FR LC72-Lichtfunktion A 30,not active ,16 (Footwell Light)
Leuchte30FR LC72-Lichtfunktion B 30 ,16 (Terminal 58xs dimmer) -power supply for ambient lights function. if lights ON (AUTO-ON/side lights/low beam in light switch positions)
Leuchte30FR LC72-Lichtfunktion C 30 ,16 (Interior Lights) -power supply for footwell lights function. When open the doors.
Leuchte30FR LC72-Dimmwert AB 30,0 ,16 (I choose 60) -60 is my setting, ambient
Leuchte30FR LC72-Dimmwert CD 30,0 ,16 (I choose 100) -100 is my setting, footwell
---------

Tip for all those who read this post:

You all should / it would be good for all of you (POLO AW owners) to share the adaptation channels when you make successful modifications.

Hello guys.
Thanks to the help of my friend n4s and Helder from Portugal, we got active the footwell light in the AW Polo;)
These are the following adaptation channels:
  • Foot - Foot well lighting = installed
  • 2C64 - Dimmwert AB 32 = 100
  • 2C64 - Fehlerort_mittleres_Byte_DTC-DFCC_32 = 2
  • 2C64 - Type_Of_Load_32 = LED Kleinleistung ohne Open Load Diagnose
  • 2C64 - Light_Function_A_32 = Footwell light

Hi,
My name is Gabriel and I’m from Brazil.
I’m also trying to retrofit the footwell lights on my 𝐏𝐨𝐥𝐨 aw.
I installed them and did the coding with vcds. Everything is working, except that the option to reduce/increase the brightness is not showing on my screen...
do you have any ideia what’s happening?

Thank you!
