Default Bulb out error light after led tails install help!

I've had my led's installed on a 2011 golf for a while now and I am tired of looking at the little error message on my dash telling me all of my rear lights don't work. I have a VCDS and want to know if anyone can give me step by step directions of how to get rid of the error light? I've read some posts on here of getting into the central electronics options on the vag-com but everytime I try to access it, I get a message telling me that it's invalid or some crap. The build date of my car is 11/10. Here are some pics:

Since you have VCDS, I would suggest emailing an autoscan to Ross-Tech. New Mk6 electronics no longer have the cold diagnostics on/off bits that can easily be changes. Now Byte 18 in the central electronics control module (address 09) controls all lights. VW has made this more dificult in the newer cars. Here's some info:


For Byte 18 info, look here.


More rear LED info in this thread: (read the whole thread before making changes)


Have Fun!
