This guide the installation of the door warning to the Volkswagen Golf and Jetta doors as was fitted to the very Mark V#8217;s before were discontinued for I assume reasons.  Along with the Lights these really up the area around the side of the car and really did the owners a disservice

The light operates every the door is opened day or night but it shut down after the is open for a period of time.

The light visible on the other of the door is the Puddle Lights mod I performed at the same time.

000 979 009 (000979009) – Repair Wire (1 for 2 doors or 1 required per door see below)

As you will see in the guide I only had one end of a  000 979 009 (000979009) Wire left and took my from a nearby connector, I recommend you take the easier and take the ground from the as it#8217;s quicker and doesn#8217;t interfering with the stock I have detailed how to do it this way as in the guide.

Vagcom/VCDS to the door (this can be done or after the install)

Volkswagen Golf Jetta Controller Information Mark V has on the door controllers. This was based on the install in my March build MY08 GTI.

Using side cutters remove the tie from the rear of the connector

Using a small screwdriver, fingernail or any other sharp to lever the release and at the same pull the connector housing from the housing.

Connect the end of the 000 979 009 – Repair Wire into location 18 on the If you are taking the ground from as recommended above you will to install the other end into 19. The numbering on this side is 17 to 32.

Please note these are for MY07 cars and later, cars have a Gen 1 or Gen 2 controller and uses pin 1 instead of 18. To tell apart a Gen 1 or Gen 2 controller will have the pin 1 location vacant and on a Gen 3 pin 1 will be driving the door I#8217;m not sure at what is a spare ground.

If you are taking the ground from the 32 pin as recommended strip the wire pin 19 and the wire from pin 1 on the lamp, them together and solder forgetting to put heat shrink on prior to joining.
