All Lights Shut Off When Turning Off Vehicle
Thanks to Tim S for these instructions

WARNING: I will not be held liable if anything occurs when attempting to change anything in the VCDS software. These instructions are created to the best of my knowledge and are as accurate as I can make them. Please be careful before you save your settings and always run Auto-Scan before any changes are attempted.

Load up VCDS, click on the Select button under Select Control Module

Click on the 09-Cent. Elect. button

Click on the Coding - 07 button

Click on the Long Code Helper button

Click on Byte 15 and check mark Bit 5 - Parking Lights OFF with Terminal S OFF and Light Switch at Low Beam

All lights should be off when the key is out of the ignition, even if you have your light switch to the far right (everything on). The default setting would leave parking lights (front and back) on after taking key out of the ignition.

I guess this would save your battery in case you forgot to turn the light switch to off, but I am not 100% sure about this.
