Hello everyone! I've been looking for someone to code my car so that the tail lights turn on even during daytime, as daytime running lights. My 2021 Macan was totalled because some guy "didn't see me". So this is something I've been wanting to do on my 2022 Macan.

I'm in the san francisco bay area and so far I've had no luck with dealerships (Redwood City and Stevens Creek) and tuning shops (BR Racing and Sharkswerk). And spending thousands of dollars on a PIWIS(?) just for this is not practical...

Would appreciate any advice here! thanks

haha but I also prefer having only the DRL turned on at the front. If I turn the light switch to parking or low beam positions, the positioning lights also turn on, and in the case of the 2022 Macan the front fog/horizontal lights turn on in place of the four-point DRLs when at parking light position

I have done this in my Macan. Turn it on for a while, then decided to turn off. This also illuminates the instrument cluster when headlights are off…

If you find someone with a LAUNCH X431, you should be able to code with it…. You can actually get a LAUNCH X431 in Amazon for a more affordable price… and you could do a bunch more things with it (including diagnostics).

Code:
System Selection > Front-end Electronics > Coding value--Exterior lighting--Exterior lights, DD lights with marker light = Yes
{Default: No}

Problem with this approach is…….you go to the dealer for a problem…..numb nut tech just auto codes the car to troubleshoot a problem. Your edit gets wacked…..happens , believe me.

Get your own unit.
