Just installed mine the other day,  as with everyone else all works except illumination,  but do you really need it,  how many times do you look at the wheel once you know the buttons,  yes it's annoying but not end of world

I'm with you 100% I'd love it to light up,  potentially you could run a lighting wire through slip ring to the leds in the wheel,  as long as slip ring has extra cable it's possible,  but for now I'm OK ish with it not lighting up,  there isn't going to be much inside them switches so easy to find the lighting wire?

it might even be possible to parallel up a mk5 wheel electronics box (the one in the wheel itself) with the new wheel, i might give this a go first, doubling up on the lin bus cable, this is all just wishfull thinking as i don't want to pay out tones of money for more mk6 parts just for illumination

just thought of something else the power to the switches only comes on when ignition is on, use this to power the leds by a bit of poking around in the switches, this would obviously be lit all the time including day times but worth a go

Not sure how you gonna do it. All communication between module and SW goes only on 3 wires. That 3 wires are responsible for all buttons and illumination.
There is no slave module in mk7 steering wheel. It is integrated with buttons. In mk6 its separate small box.
In my opinion, the only way to get the buttons illuminate in mk5 is to swap steering wheel module for mk6 one. There is only one problem - steering angle sensor. In mk5 it is in steering column. In mk6 in steering rack.

But sadly Eddie not everyone on eBay for the 390 there going for is able to get the correct wheel,  if we could get them cheap we'd all have the correct one obvs

Plus looking up the part number of the wheel I have on etka it comes from the scirocco and polo,  polo being the car you mentioned earlier,  so surely should work? Edit just looked up wheel which is correct for both cars but switches are different part numbers for each car.

Plus could anyone confirm who does have or has seen illumination working if it's red or white,  as I'll just but the correct left hand switch module and change it,  if it defo works

One other quick thing for now,  anyone with dsg paddles confirm the plus and minus light up,  as you could back feed power into this to make illumination work?

I was convinced I actually had the Polo wheel with it not having cruise control but having red stitching.

Cheers I was looking up the polo switch part numbers last night,  ic the 442 C has cruise but I'm more interested to know if 100% it has the mfd buttons on the wheel or the stalk,  I have previously seen polo wheels with only left hand buttons

Edit after checking Google images and cross referencing that with etka,  there is only one set (can't buy either side separately) of switches without any cruise buttons on,  6C0 959 442 (no letter's) these are priced cheapest out of the 5 sets at approximately 150 quid,  a bit annoying once you've bought a wheel but if you 100% want illumination then as Eddie has proved these are the switches you need

Interesting. Do you think a different airbag/multi function loom would be required too?

No not at all,  just different set of switches,  I'll let you know in a months time or so when I buy a set

If you find some cheap on the bay let me know. If these work I'll just swallow the cost and buy a set too. Saves a much more expensive Mk6 steering rack being fitted.

Sorry to be slightly off topic but where would the coding be to enable / disable mfa wiper stalk Ed?

Wondering if that is a simple fix to me not being able to access the menu screens on my clocks.  @vRSAlex Are you familiar with this?

Hi Eddie,

Can u explain the process followed for the steering retrofit.  Since you have already cracked i..very eager to know how did pu accomplish this. Specifically the mk7 button illumination on while fitting on mk5.   

Thanks,
roshan

so i removed my wheel bits today to check part numbers as the wheel 1k8 419 091 AP can be fitted to the polo or scirocco according to ETKA

but what is specific to the polo is the air bag, so i have a polo wheel as the airbag is 6C0 880 201 G

but looking at ETKA you can have buttons 1K8 959 442 (possibly white illumination? But doesn't work with CH controller regardless ) fitted to both polo or scirocco, i have these buttons

or there are other buttons for the polo all starting with 6C0, so 6C0 959 442 (no letter) are a set of switches with NO cruise that light up red and will work with the CH control module, sadly its not that simple to find all this info about your wheel if your buying from eBay but if your lucky enough to get 6C0 buttons illumination should work. if your really desperate for buttons to light up the you need to order buttons from TPS for approx 150 quid.
