    Headlight Question

    Update for today. Downloaded and installed the latest version of VCDS and ran an Auto Scan. Module 55 showed no faults. I ran the adaptation reset with the light switch in all three positions and there is no change. Running the Output Tests and everything works and I can see the lights move and...

    Headlight Question

    Well, nothing was broken and the electrical contacts were clean in the connector. I removed it, sprayed it with PB Blaster, exercised it through its full extension and reinstalled it. When it was reinstalled and plugged in, there was no change. I'll try the VCDS adaptation again tomorrow...

    Headlight Question

    I have the horn beep turned off as I think it's annoying. Just one of my quirks, I guess, as I can hear the lock click when I press the button on the fob. Do the headlights work now as the beep has returned? Wondering if they were related...
