    Ok bought the rain sensor 5Q0955547A and fitted it tonight.. wipers not working when i put water on the windscreen.
    Wiper stalk is in the intermittent position.
    I cannot see RLHS in the obdeleven 09 submenu 2
    i did see RLS about 4 times somewhere in the 09 section.

    Rain sensor should work without coding. I get auto wipers only when the car is started, i cant remember if this was the case before altering settings via vcds

    more on facelift models. I got hint from this article, where icardiag mentioned that in all VW cars from MY17, some of the BCM modules are moved from coding to adaptations. http://forums.ross-tech.com/showthread.php?10616-Modules-reporting-zero-code-string&styleid=2

    @iby104 you had any progress on your coding? If the light-switch is not working same as old switch ( except the auto mode ), I suspect the faulty light switch.

    I used switch 5G0941431AF,
    and sensor. 5Q0955547B

    My switch arrived early while I was waiting for the sensor. So I installed the switch, without doing any coding and it was working fine for a week, ofcourse apart from the auto option.

    It does seem like the switch is faulty, but i will hope rule this out tomorrow, when i see my friend with the golf gtd. If it is, il order another switch. I bought this 1 about 6 months ago, just didnt have time to install it, cant return it.

    Just a thought on my last thread about auto wiper and rain closing.. do you have to have the auto headlight switch for all the rain stuff to work ?
    Also in submenu i do not see RLS at all .. has anyone got a screen shot of that menu with the RLS showing up ?
    Thanks.

    I bought if from a Dutch breaker who only had the one from a 2017 Leon, I just hope it's the right one when it arrives. He didn't take credit cards or PayPal and it was a pain transferring Euros to his bank account. Just Google 5G0941431AF and see what comes up, that's what I did.

    No you don't need the switch for the rain sensor to work. It should work without coding or switch.

    You need to read some previous posts to see the screenshots. So, scroll up..

    They are hard to come buy especially at a sensible price, mine was €35 but it is €20 for carriage, it was the only one I could find when I searched a couple of weeks ago.

    Cheers.
    I have bought this as a stop gap.

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VW-Polo-...e=STRK:MEBIDX:IT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649

    I think it will work on auto lights .. buy i may only have rear fog lights until i track the correct switch out.
    Can anyone confirm this before it arrives ?
    Thanks.

    Hi guys, ive managed to try another switch from a 2017 golf gte, this only has rear fogs but the auto lights worked spot on, and i had no errors on the screen. Turns out the autolight switch i bought is faulty, it threw up the same errors on the gte as it did on mine. Damn ebay seller sold me a dodgey switch for £30

    Il buy another switch and let you know how i get. Thanks vikram for all the help, much appreciated

    Absolute LEGEND!!

    Got the sensor and switch last August and gave up after trying OBD11 and VCDS on the long coding for about a month.

    Spent 5 mins tonight in OBD11 adaptions and the everything worked, except leaving home lights. Factory reset the light settings in the the car and boom, leaving home now works.

    Can’t thank you enough for finding this solution!!
