Well. My 2nd set of brand new switches from TPS have been modified and they also only light up on one side. Frustrating.
Dragging up an old thread....

I'm do this at the moment and have the same problem.

All buttons work, and horn, no illumination, as we know.
So I did Si's wiring mod, but only one side of the buttons illuminate.

Did you ever get to the bottom of it?

Picked up a mk7 golf mfsw and have a CH module on order. OBDeleven for coding. With the exception of button illumination, should what I have be enough to get button and horn function?

so this is button illumination working on the Polo Scirocco 1K8 wheel with 1K8 switches (no cruise)

over the last 48 ish hours i ordered a set of buttons for my wheel which i thought would fit, but as i didn't fully check the PR numbers in ETKA i ended up with a smaller set of buttons for my wheel, not good. returned them to TPS and as i was ordering yet another set that were now more expensive they exchanged them.

last night i was at work and had 12 hours to kill and my original set of buttons with me, i started tracing out the illumination circuit on the switches and decided just to give it a go of powering it up directly with 12v.

I won't go on anymore other to say that i tried feeding the 12v to the illumination pin of the DSG paddle but bizarrely only lit up one set of switches even though i tried both sides of DSG paddle.

I found a point i could solder a wire too i tried this with 12v on it and all buttons came on.
 
so now i'm stuck with a set of switches on back order from TPS at a cost of 218 quid just to see if i could illuminate them.

thankfully TPS refunded (which i didn't think they did) the lot so today i'm happy.

The Issue for me is i DON'T WANT 5 or 7 extra buttons (adaptive/standard cruise control)  on my wheel just to get them to work with the CH module using the LIN Bus 2 settings, i'd rather have the standard buttons and either live with them not lighting or do my mod which you'll see some pics of soon.

we are really lucky in the MK5 that the power for the switches is ignition fed (terminal 15) so 12v is applied only when ignition is on, we can use this to power the led circuit inside the switches for it to work.

oh and one other thing if you want the extra buttons with cruise so it works out the box then as Eddie already said 6C0 959 442 C will get you buttons with standard cruise 6C0 959 442 D with adaptive cruise these cruise buttons will not work in your MK5 but will light up from the CH module,  all the other standard buttons will work as long as you have the CH control module.

if you have buttons 1K8 959 442 (these light up red NOT white as i previously thought) then follow this to get them to light up

remove the switches from there holders T8 torx, remove the back cover of the switch that the black plug goes in 5 pointed safety torx (jam the T8 in there)

now look for this terminal



this is common POSITIVE they put the resistors in the negative (cathode) side of the LED this  common positive powers all leds on both switches.

Annoyingly i could only find somewhere on the front of the switch so be very careful when putting back together incase you rip the copper track off the board as you'll be bending the wire back round the circuit board.

so put the circuit board back together and route the tiny wire to here





solder to terminal 2 the +12v, now when you turn the key all the buttons will light up including in the day time.

test before putting it all back together





any questions feel free to ask

I have a Scirocco of 2009 then with electronics Golf 5 2008 and I welded the wire as in the picture but the keys are lit only on the left side where the wire was welded!

does anyone know why?

steering module 1k0 953 549 CH and red Keys!

Installed this beaut. Replaced clock spring (C), swcm (CH) and cc stalk (G), also mfsw wiring loom 5G0971584G.
Presently have no horn function. Only buttons that work are on the right. The OK button reduces volume and the silver buttons advance or start over/goes to previous music selection.
No other buttons function.
Think I've tried most Lin 2.0 coding combinations..
0000532/534/512/514/732/734/712/714
All with the same result.
Tried Lin 1.3 and no buttons function.
Anyone have an idea what the issue is?
*car is an 07 GTI w/ mfsw

Thanks for the reply @olsen-72
Tried that code. Confident I have the correct loom  (airbag, controls + 1 blue + 2 brown).

It's interesting because I've read that some of the steering wheels are actual mk7-look with previous generation internals and actual mk7 wheels won't work. Can't imagine everyone in this thread doesn't know the difference lol. Looking at back up plans in case I can't get it to function as other's have.

MFS button are from the Polo(6R/6C)?
