    Remove "Turn on dipped headlight message" with OBD 11

    Does anyone know how to code this message out with OBD 11. There are times when there is no need to turn on the dipped headlights but the message wont go away on the dash until I turn on "auto" or dipped headlights

    My Tig does it every time I turn the ignition on in the garage I presume because its sort of darker in there it thinks the headlights should be on.
    It doesnt do it if the headlights are on auto as they come on if door is shut

    That's the reason why I was hoping to disable the message as I don't need the headlights to turn on in the garage when I start the car, only to have it turn off when I drive out into brighter sunlight. The Polo has DRL lights anyway so dipped head lights are not really necessary until the early evening

    This is actually a pain that lasts longer than just exiting the garage ... I have the same on my Golf R.

    Essentially the R is VERY sensitive to light and often I am the only car that has its lights on. It often still is an hour to sundown but that very 1st bit of dusk pre sunset triggers the auto lights. I don't need the lights yet, but turning it off "auto" gets me that d@mn annoying message.

    I WANT, no NEED to turn it off.

    Probably have a better chance of coding the light sensor to be less sensitive..


    If it annoys you but ive always been a have the lights on early type and when im driving I cant see them so dont worry about them

    Same with DRL's they are a safety device and also illegal to disable them so why worry driver cant see them
