    Not a new problem. The DRLs are actually the headlights (as opposed to a separate bulb/s) but the process to turn the DRLs off doesn't work so they stay on all the time. So either VCDS to turn the DRL off or put up with it. VW have said (to me) that they won't fix the actual cause.

    They wont do it because it is illegal to disable DRL's if factory fitted

    Yep, H15 high beam dual filament globes.

    Mind you I'm talking Amarok, but they're basically the same setup, same globes as VW passenger cars.

    I run seperate LED DRLs and coded the park circuit to activate as DRLs so I have taillights during the day.

    Because my DRLs are now always on with the park circuit I then needed the LEDs to go out when the headlights came on to be legal, hence tapping into low beam as a trigger to turn them off.

    I suspect I've overlooked something that is causing my 'auto' lights to stop working.

    As for your issue why don't you try pulling the light switch out (easy as) and unplug the connector to isolate the switch being the problem.
