Default 2012 Golf Sportwagen remote start

Hi all,

I just had a remote start installed in my 2012 Golf Sportwagen yesterday. It's an Idatastart. Seems to work fine, except when it's in operation, the four way flashers flash continuously every five seconds, and the park lights are not on. They told me that was the only way they could do it.

I know this car is an oddball, so I checked out the wiring diagrams (free ones online) for 2012 Jetta, 2012 Golf & 2010 Jetta, and they all show different park light wiring. The installer said the only thing he can do is unhook the four way flashers, then nothing will come on with the remote start. I disagree, there has to be a way to trigger the park lights. I've done enough remote starts in my day that makes me think there is always a way. Does anyone have any feed back one way or another? Thanks!
