    Default disable automatic lighting

    hi folks,

    Is there anybody who knows how to disable automatic power
    of main lights. Problem is because if you leave lights sweetch
    off than you don't have lights on for interior.

    If you want to have armature lights on than you have to
    sweetch lights on manualy. But when you do this,
    lights are powerd off first and than on again. This is not
    gut for bulbs.

    thanks for help

    If I'm not mistaken all the dash bulbs (which I think you're referring to) are actually LEDs, so powering them on/off over many cycles isn't going to harm them at all.

    problem is that when I start engine, lights are automaticaly powerd on but
    leds and meters inside are off.

    Then I need to sweetch lights on to get leds and meeters on.

    Here is problem that when you sweetch main lights on,
    they firstly are powerd off and then on again.

    I would like to make main lights powerd off when I start engine

    Cheers

    I have the impression you don't have auto lights (ALC) but that your lights are programmed for 'daytime running' (Tagesfahrlicht); there are several versions possible but it has to be programmed via tech2. I think you have version 4 and what you want is version 1 (or disable it complete); however not everything is possible on all MY.
