ACC Live / Ignition On - Help

Post by nizzex » Mon Nov 13, 2017 9:23 pm

Hi guys

I need help. I want to fit some DRLs and can't find a acc live / ignition on. I want it to live only when key ignition is on. I can wire my DRL to come on with headlights but I do not want that. Where in the engine bay can I wire in? The fuse box in the bonnet isn't much help. I tested a few fuses and all are live?

I may be wrong but I think you can code using VCDS to turn sidelights (front) as DRL (so are live when ignition is on) you could then use this feed and loop to DRL's.

How did you looked for fuse ? If its in tdi.then there are few in engine fuse box , if its 3.2 or 3.6 engine , then only in.fuse boxes on the side of dash.
