Is having the xenon+halogen+fog lights all on with the highbeams possible?

Is this possible with coding only, without having to splice and rewire anything?

I have seen people do this on various forums but I have no idea how they do it. I've looked and I can find no concise answer. I would be interested in doing this if it is possible to achieve with coding only.

And if it is, is there a way to make them go on only when the flash to pass is pressed, versus when the regular high beam mode is engaged.

Possible yes with coding. I think terrphntm has done it with no issues. You will have your low beams/fog lights on and be able to do flash to pass/or leave the high beams on while retaining the fog lights.

FL_UND_NSW_NICHT_GLEICHZ needs to be changed to nicht_aktiv

It's in the ALSZ module.

FL = Fernlicht = Highbeam
UND = And
NSW = Nebelscheinwerfer = Fog light
NICHT_GLEICHZ = Nicht gleichzeitig = Not at the same time

Now - is there a way to make the halogen and xenon high beams be on at the same time?

For that you will probably have to do some wiring (bridge) for both to be powered when the stalk is moved either forward or back. Ex pushing stalk forward for bi-xenon high and using the projectors shutter to trigger the halogen highs.

How about the other way, wiring the xenon high beam to come on when you pull the flash-to-pass halogen high beams on. That is the one I would be the most interested in if wiring is required. Do you know what's needed? I would not mind attempting this as I have 2 pairs of headlights, so I can practice on one pair before making a permanent change on the 2nd pair.

Hmmm, yea you're right doing it that way will be easier. The current in the high beam positive wire has enough juice to activate the bi-xenon shutter solenoid. Simple way is just to bridge off a wire off the high beam positive to the positive on the shutter. Should work, if not maybe the ground wires need to be wired somehow as well.


I hope terraphntm or sillieidiot chime in soon

Yes, you can have bi-xenon highbeam and inner halogen highbeam activated via NCS Expert.

I believe it's this line in the LCM:
PWM_WERT2_FL_BIXENON from wert_02 to wert_01
