Default Exterior door handle and mirror lights

Evening...

Sometime in the last 48 hours, both my front exterior door handle and under mirror lights have stopped coming on.

The rear door handle ones work fine, so my uneducated guess is it's something common between the other 4 (fuse/relay?)

Any clues greatly appreciated!

For clarity I'm referring to the pretty LED under mirror lights that light up the road, not the indicators...

Hi! only a silly question:
Are the side mirrors folded? In my car, when they are, neither the mirror leds nor the front handle lights are turned on.

Cheers

Bingo, that was it! The only silly question was mine.

That's not at all! Thanks to the forum I've learned a lot about the car and it's time to help when it's possible.

Best regards from Spain

Via software, that is, VAG Com, I'm afraid that it's not possible. I was looking at the possible codings and I didn't find any reference to the mirror lights. Similar problem with the auto-folding mirrors...
