    2013 Polo dipped head lights on all the time

    Hi, my sons just bought a 2013 Polo and we have found the dipped head lights are on constantly. They turn onto side lights when turning switch to side light position but when the switch is set to zero they are on all the time.

    Is this normal, or a fault?

    Annoyingly normal, a really stupid idea that you can override with some snips...

    Hello, if you look on YouTube, there are a few ideas how to disable these lights, I did mine by removing the lights on and off cluster, and taping up a pin at the back, now i only have the side lights on, i hope this helps, from the 'new person '

    If you take out the switch you can remove or even just cut the offending wire. You can use this wires output to feed proper external DRL's in the genuine fog light housings with DRL fitting.
