Latvia’s ghost lane?

Adding Interior Door Handle Illumination to the Volkswagen Golf and Jetta – Front

This guide is not yet complete – any information contained within has not been confirmed yet.

Parts required:

  • Suitable LED and resister for 12V operation.
  • 000 979 009 (000979009) – Repair Wire (1 required for 2 doors or 1 required per door – see below)
    I’m not sure if there is a spare ground on the controller or if an existing one has to be used.
  • Interior fabric adhesive tape – Fabric Adhesive Tape for wiring looms and harnesses
  • Trim Removal Tools
  • Selection of heat shrink tubing (3-5mm), soldering iron/blowtorch, solder
  • Vagcom/VCDS to code the door (this can be done before or after the install)

Volkswagen Golf & Jetta Door Controller Information Mark V has information on the door controllers. This guide will be based on the install in my March 2008 build MY08 GTI.
