Hi, I recently retrofitted a rain and light sensor to my A3 8v (2013) and everything is working well in terms of auto wipers, lights etc. Even the coming home lights work well (I.e. come on when dark as expected) however the leaving home lights do not always work - whenever I leave the car during the day and return to the car in the evening the leaving home lights don’t work even though the auto lights activate as soon as I start the engine.
when I turn the engine off and exit the car the coming home lights activate - what’s weird is, when I unlock the car again the leaving home lights start working again - is this how it’s supposed to function??
in short - if the lights were on during the last journey then the leaving home lights will activate if dark, however if the lights were off during the last journey the leaving home lights don’t come on even if dark.

^^^ for the coming home/leaving home settings (i.e., the original topic), the setup for adaptation channels is as indicated below in the Central electrics module @ address hex09 - except that whereas the channel group is shown as Comfort illumination in the picture, for an A3 8V, this may be Außenlicht_uebergreifend instead.
PS: I've highlighted the CH channels in the yellow box, but not note the settings for the LH channels as well
I have a similar problem, also for me everything works fine in terms of auto lights and rain sensor but the CH/LH lights won't work even buying the application on the OBD app. Does it have anything to do with the fact i retrofitted it? P.S. i've tried these options and still don't work..
I have a similar problem, .............. the CH/LH lights won't work even buying the application on the OBD app. Does it have anything to do with the fact i retrofitted it?..
maaks: Hi. "retrofitted" - what do you mean by "retrofitted"?
The steps in my previous response sets-up the hex09 module (the module that OBD11 calls "Central electric") to enable the CH function and the LH function- assuming that the car has a light sensor fitted to the windshield. These changes are normally all that's required for bog-standard halogen headlight assemblies.
However, and notwithstanding that the channel Außenlicht_uebergreifend-Coming Home Leuchten in my screen-shot has the setting low beam - on some cars (depending on the type of headlight fitting that's installed) after this is done, you will also need to program the command Coming Home oder Leaving Home aktiv into the appropriate Leuchte-sets for the low beam lamps. A Leuchte-set is a bank of 19 x adaptation channels with the word "Leuchte" in its title and with the same parent name accross all 19 x channels. A Leuchte-set controls an individual light of the 35 x exterior lights on a MQB platform vehicle - like the Audi A3 8V.
For example, the 2 x Leuchte-sets for the low-beam lights are:
Leuchte6ABL LC5 left-side
Leuchte7ABL RB1 right-side
I don't know what type of headlights are on your car - but for HID fittings, additional changes are required as follows:
Low beam left-side
Leuchte6ABL LC5-Lichtfunktion C 6 > Coming Home oder Leaving Home aktiv
Leuchte6ABL LC5-Dimmwert CD 6 >127
Low beam right-side
Leuchte7ABL RB1-Lichtfunktion C 7 > Coming Home oder Leaving Home aktiv
Leuchte7ABL RB1-Dimmwert CD 7 >127
If you want other car lights to participate in the CH/LH activities (i.e. tail lights - perhaps). similarly program the above Leuchte commands into vacant channels in the allied Leuchte-sets
With retrofitted i mean that my car didn't come with auto lights from the factory so i installed and coded both the auto light switch and rain/light sensor and everything works fine apart from CH/LH; lights won't stay on when i get the Key off the ignition and and they won't come on when i locking/unlock the car. I've read your response...but i haven't fully understaded what's the problem with It. My car has Xenon headlights..Hope you can help me
Tried but still doesn't work, tried with both manual and automatic, with manual if i give a shot of High beams and then open the door they stay on for the 20 seconds ad set, but i don't want these Kind of mechanisms, i'd like them to turn on/off when i locking/unlock the car like every other car. I even tried with buying the application and still doesn't work...crazy

^^^ OK - so at least the CH function works in the manual setting. Does LH work at all and are there any error messages on the hex09 module (Central electrics) - perhaps related to the rain-light-sensor?
Also check the following channel settings in hex09 module:
CH/LH General settings Außenlicht_uebergreifend-Menueeinstellung CHO LHO > Menuesteuerung aktivieren (this places a switch in the MENU for the CH/LH function- make sure that this software switch is enabled) Light sensor-Einschaltgrenze_CHO_LHO > 600 lx (this sets the twilight light-level threshold for CH/LH) LH settings
Leaving-Home Verbausstatus > Enabled Menueeinstellung Leaving-home Zeit per BAP > 60 seconds (this sets the on-time for LH) Menuesteuerung Leaving-home Freischaltung per BAP > active
CH settings Außenlicht_uebergreifend Coming Home Leuchten > Low beam Coming Home Verbaustatus > automatic Coming-home Einschaltereignis > Driver door Menueeinstellung Cominghome > 20 seconds (this sets the on-time for CH) Menuesteuerung Coming Home Werkseinstellung > active
I have set up everything like you said it but still doesn't work. My concern is about the menu option being disabled in the software. I think it doesn't appear in my menu yet, this is what i have right now: Car > exterior lighting > lights when giù get out (ON), lights when unlocking (ON) I had a suspect that the adaptions wouldn't work but i just solved a problem with side mirrors so the OBD works fine
Forgot to tell you, there's are no errors in hex-09 related to the sensor. I think my concern is right because my other problem was with mirrors not folding when locking the car and i had to do it manually, i finally found online the coding to make the setting appear on the MMI and it was OFF, i enabled It and now it works just like factory. Also, one last thing, i tried buying it again but even the application turns back OFF by itself, don't know why honestly. (The reason i bought it again is because i was showing a friend how CH/LH wouldn't work and went on the application for CH/LH lights and found out it turned OFF by itself)
Ok, i made It work somehow, found the coding to make the settings appear on the MMI so right now i also have Automatic lights (set in medium) and DRL lights (ON) in the exterior lighting settings. Now i just would like the fog lights ti stay off during the CH/LH, could you give me any advice?
vwjap: Yay don 👍🏻 Hopefully no more frustrations this year

chfis: hi DV52, is there a way with a mk7.5 R to change the colour of the needle that is in the tachometer / speedometer in the AID?
Nov 30, 2019 21:26:16 GMT
chfis: Not sure if it matters but my car is an Australia 7.5R
Nov 30, 2019 21:26:57 GMT
dv52 (Australia): chfis: G'day cobber!! Change just the color of the tacho needle? hmm..... I don't think so - but happy to be told otherwise by more knowledgeable forum colleagues

dv52 (Australia): Ron: good initiative, but isn't 0.16.2 a release software version (not a "beta-test matter)?
Dec 1, 2019 22:36:34 GMT
testeronline: Don, no idea any more, I am in the beta testing group and just been upgraded to 16.2 so I presumed this was still a beta test issue. But I cant confirm as i cant see whats been released to general users.
Dec 1, 2019 23:36:05 GMT
testeronline: Well now i have double checked I got an updated just now on my phone but as you say we were already on 16,2 so very confused about what the upgrade was about other than the language change they quoted in the release.
Dec 1, 2019 23:42:51 GMT
vwjap: There was something on this where release was 16 and beta was 15 a few days back
Dec 2, 2019 15:34:04 GMT
testeronline: Yes similar thing, different versions of the sofware according to which google location you connected to and I was upgraded to a higher number and then later downgraded to a lower 1 (as that was the current beta version). So right now we are all on same 1)

michelm: Hi. The rear wiper of my Golf MK7 2013 Highline doesn't go back to its neutral position after wiping and stops at random positions. Does anybody know which code to use to fix this?
Dec 2, 2019 21:55:09 GMT
dv52 (Australia): michelm: could be lots of reasons for wiper problem - alas. What's the long-code value on the WWS module (it's a subsystem of central electrics module)? Have you made any changes lately (look at your history records)?
Dec 2, 2019 23:29:20 GMT
dv52 (Australia): oops.. forget WWS module question in my previous reply - just realized that the problem is in REAR wiper
