Hi all,
I own a 2006 EOS and I know I had the coming/leaving home lights but I cannot seem to find where to activate it again.
My car unfortunately had so many issues that in the two years since I have it, it was in repair shop for a year accumulated.
I don't know if they deactivated it but I've looked in the settings and have no option on that (or at least I don't find it).
Looking forward for your help!
Best,
João

If you have a hi-line model with comprehensive cockpit display I think you can find the settings there. If you have the basic information display like mine it has to be done by settings using a diagnostics tool or get a dealer to do it on next service. There are lots of customiseable features like that, but unfortunately when workshops start replacing, repairing or resetting modules they can wipe these optional settings. No big deal if you are paying for a service with a diagnostics check included.

The same is true of all doors auto locking above 8 mph feature for security and many other useful options.

Hi voxmagna,
Thank you for your answer!
Although I was hoping to be able to do it myself at least now I know it can be solved.
Besides the coming home lights and door lock what other features are there to be programed? Do you know where I can find it?
Best,
João

You either need to let a dealer do it as I said (cheapest) or spend money on a good diagnostic tool that will hold your hand and do it for you. Read here and study their wiki to find out what you may be taking on:

I was amused by the screen preparation requiring a small part of the screen to be roughed up with a relatively large sanding disc! There are adhesive that bond to smooth glass. If I really wanted to roughen the surface on a windshield like in the vid, I would mask the profile shape and use a spray gun type grit blaster. A home comressor at 100 psi would be sufficient.

I mounted an OE RLS sensor(without mirror) on my screen using silicone. It's stayed stuck for 3 years, but can be removed cleanly. Most rearviews now are fixed with a really strong 3M double sided pad - no grinding required. The genuine OE RLS with dimming mirror fits on a substantial metal mount pre-installed on the screen. EOS screens come in 2 types - those with the mount and others without. Those with mounts have a standardised tint for the RLS sensor to work.
