    Re: Daytime running lights

    they were most likely requested to be disabled by the previous owner. find some with vagcom to get them enabled. it's all done through the software, so no wiring is involved.

    Will VW Disable DRL's by request or is there a fee involved?

    They will not since DRL's are a safety feature.

    If you put the Euro Switch in, what happens if DTRL's are still enabled via Vag Com? Will it blow something?

    Re: Daytime running lights

    the switch shouldn't have anything to do with it. But you do need it to use them alone.

    As luki13 said the euroswitch won't affect DRL functionality since it doesn't control them. All the other lighting options will not work since there won't be any wires from the ecm to the switch or wires to the the accessory. Unless you get fogs or the coming home option, there's really no need for the euroswitch.

    I may be forgetting, however I believe the stock headlight switch only has two positions, on and off. The euro switch has a parking light position in addition to fog lights.

    You can get the programming done before you get the switch AFAIK.

    The switch is on and off. So with the DRLs disabled, you have no DRLs, then when you turn your headlights on they come on. Once you get the Euro switch it'll have the position for parking lights and other stuff.

    AFAIK - As Far As I Know.
