    Airbag Light and VAG-COM Questions

    Hi all,

    Just installed an aftermarket drivers bucket seat into my 2014 R8 V10 - tried to put the correct resistor in there but evidently messed up somehow. Airbag warning light remains on even after clearing in VAG-COM.

    Does anyone know if when the airbag warning light is on, are all airbags off? Or is it just a warning that the side airbag doesn't work? I'm leaving for a longer driving trip in two weeks, if the former I'll have to really push to get a new resistor installed / clear ahead of taking off, but if not I don't mind a warning light being on the dash for a while

    Separately, was wondering if anyone knows if it is possible to clear a spoiler fault light long-term? I installed a Liberty Walk ducktail spoiler that involved removing the entire OEM spoiler motor, and now the light is on (comes back as soon as you clear in VAGCOM). Not a huge deal but if it can be cleared that'd be great

    Finally wondering if anyone figured out how to have tail lights come on as DRL? Searched through the VAGCOM thread and doesn't seem like there was a consensus. Additionally tried the coding here but didn't work / only replaced my turn signals with my backup lights...

    You maybe able to code out the airbag light, check the instrument cluster (17).
    Spoiler can be coded out in the long coding of central electronics.
    Tail lights I have less experience with, but that should be located in central electronics too.
