I am looking to see if it is possible to have my dashboard lights turn off completely while I have my headlights on for night time driving as I don’t want to get distracted. In the head unit I can turn off the footwell and door lights but I want to be able to turn off the backlight for the heating and radio buttons. Bonus points if it is a setting in the head unit that can be turned on and off so that I don’t have to code it each time I want them back. Double points if it can be a setting whereby this behaviour only happens with headlight switch on the “on” position and not when on “auto” 2015 mk7 GTI (UK)
As John has told you very well, you can dim the LEDs that illuminate the control panel and control buttons, but I believe, although I am not entirely sure of it, that they cannot be completely disconnected; I suppose that to do so you would have to disconnect the entire instrument cluster.
In the clock of the revolutions account, if you look closely there is a photoelectric sensor that activates and deactivates the lights of the frame; Maybe deactivating this sensor can do what you want, but honestly I don't know.
To check this sensor, you just have to illuminate with a flashlight towards that point and you will see how the LEDs on the box light up.
In addition, I think it is very important and necessary when we drive at night, to know some important information about our car, such as the speed at which we drive, the temperature of the coolant, even the oil, the engine revolutions, the lights we carry on, and above all to see the position of the switches in case we want to open a window, turn on the heating or the air conditioner, activate the hazard indicators (all four), etc, etc, etc .; It seems to me that all these controls must be turned on for our own safety.
bman: I have a 2015 passat (b8) and would like to program 3rd brake light To flash with hazards on with OBDeleven I have tried the adaptation shown here but it will not accept this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

vwjap: Not many developers look on this forum and if their at home this maybe the last thing on their minds, sometimes they fix it and it just comes back into play, maybe pm obdeleven with your problem
