Agreed! And, with my MkIV anyway, those auto locks can do some serious arm pinching!

good link!

I also did the Emergency Flashers during hard braking(abs activated) it is actually pretty nice feature I love it. most people don't pay any attention when they drive so flashing the 4 ways would be good way to get their attention in a situation like that.

Has anyone figured how to set the fogs to stay on with the high's on vs. shutting off? I have been able to set this on all of my past VW's that had a fog installed from the factory with exception of my MK6 TDI. There is not a direct box or coding that I've been able to find in the 09-Electronics module and it's not represented in the pull-down selection either.

If you know something I can't find I'd be grateful!

In the MkV, you have to code the instrument cluster to UK (or another foreign country, if you speak that language) to enable this. Perhaps this is the same for the MkVI as well, not sure.

Well....I'll have to go try that and see if it works...will report back!

***Note*** after trying to re-code the dash to all other countries available, this did not work and I am still on the search for a way to make this work!

How about having the car unlock all doors when I hit "unlock" on the remote once, instead of making me hit it twice?

I did that mod on my '02 and '03, but can't find the instructions now, even if I thought they'd apply to a 2010 Golf.

You can do this from the MFI without vcds. there is an option to unlock all doors with or just the drivers on the first click, ill take a pic later when I have a chance if you still want this.

I found that last night after I posted, but I'm sure others would appreciate the pics if you're willing to click and post. If not, say so and I'll do it.

Thanks much!

I looked for this tonight and couldn't find it in the MFD or on the VAG COM. What's wrong with me????

Where did you guys find this feature?

It's in the MFI menu (hit "left" while parked) under Convenience.

Auto-unlock is the "unlock when the key comes out" one.
Under "manual" is where the other is, but I don't remember what it's called. I think it's a checkbox option.

Does that help? I'm about to go to bed, but can produce pics later if needed.
