Do you want to turn them off permanently or with welcome lights?

I'm not sure and not tested.

Try to change PWM_KZL to something else. I think, the default is wert_04. Play with KZL values for license plates.

The other option, take the bulbs off and turn off the bulb checks(cold/warm tests).

I hope it is not illegal in India. In US, you need the license plate lights on at night else you get a warning and ticket.

Why don't you just take the bulb out or disconnect it?

If you have time, just find out which value would turn them off so it would help others to disable the license plate lights.

otherwise just take off the bulbs and disable the bulb checks.

Every car should have PWM values for KZL..

Simply set the hex values to 0 via nettodat coding and they should not be illuminated anymore.
