fixing up the inside

1. Is there any third party MFD upgrades out there or am I stuck with red/remanufactured red? The screen on my MFD has partial failure in moderate heat or cold. I found a guy who I think is in Singapore which used to do upgrades. Is there an outright swap for a newer version I could do? Found mixed reviews on searches.

2. Problem with my passenger headlight. I've swapped the igniter/bulb from the driver (it doesn't work), I've swapped the passenger light/igniter to the driver (it works). Is there a relay/fuse somewhere I can check for? Is this a ballast issue? A critter ate my wiring issue?

For headlight check fuse SB48 and check if you are getting power down to the plug at headlight housing T12q/pin6.




Headlight washer relay in panel C position #4 located drive side behind lower dash. May want to look at fuse SC36.

Cool, thanks for the info!!

Checked continuity on both fuses and both are good. This seems to be a problem between the ballast and whatever tells the light to turn on.

I think the central electronics module (BSM?) control the lights

That too, the question I have (which I lack the proper tools to fully diagnose) is where is the problem. It could be ECU, harness between ECU and ballast, ballast, or even the housing itself although probably not the case since when the igniter and bulb are out of the car it works fine on one side but not the other.

So don't know how much this matters, I ran a continuity test at the fuse in the engine bay. It has continuity. So does this mean there's a bad electrical bit somewhere or is this an ECU problem that can be fixed with VAGcom?
