Vw golf mk6 gtd 59 drl issue
« on: 18 August 2020, 17:58 »
Hi sorry If there are loads of other posts but new to the forum and just needed to know if xenon led drl headlights are compatible with BCM 1K0 937 087D. The car is a 59 plate gtd that came with rear led and front afs xenon headlights. Have had coding set to 04 for byte 18 etc charged £114 to be then told my module needs to be 087K. Any help would be appreciated.

DRL LED Xenons BCM what needed

Just a note but if its a 59 it wouldn't  have had leds rear from the factory. Only optional front xenons could be ordered, LED rears not until build week 22 of 2010.

On a 2009 your BCM will probably not support the front DRL LEDs and what will happen is you won't get fault codes but the LEDs simply won't light up. This is what happens with BCMs with part number 1k0 937 087D software version 0537. You need at least software version 0575.
On a 2009 with factory xenons what is required is the newer LED light lenses 5k2 941 754 d + 5k2 941 753 d and BCM 1k0 937 087 E (software ver 0575). The rest of the bits just transfer from the older lights. Then just code them in. When i say just what i should have said is theres quite a few bits of coding to change.
