    Default Coding for hatch release and pubble lights

    Hello, Don't know if this is out there yet. I just installed the Rear Hatch release button from ECS along with the 4 door puddle lights (Bold to replace those lame reflectors. However, there isn't any coding to get both working at the same time. In most cases, to get the puddle lights to work, you just increas the code number +64 for each door. On my 2012 GTI, I start out with the OEM code of 001204. Different from other sources I've found. So I changed it to 001268. But that doesn't allow the hatch button to work. Then I changed the driver's door code to 001261 (Hatch button instructions say change last Byte to 1. That worked, but now the One Touch feature for my windows quit working. Damn!! So after working my way up the numbers and seeing what did and didn't work. I found it!!! If you change the drivers door code to 001265, everything works now: puddle lights, One Touch window feature, and Hatch release button all work now!!! Yeah!!
    Any other questions, give me a shout out!!

    Thanks for the info! I was planning on installing the hatch release on my MKIV. But great information for anyone with MKV or MKVI's!
