I think this has something to do with not lighting up on unlock?

As I said before the BC configuration are all set golden for the led bars to light up.

CONFUSED! lol..... I wonder if another visit to the bmw dealership will be a good idea.

After all they try to send me back with BS excuses such as "oh its because 1 series is different from 3 series"

I started this thread only because after searching for 1~2 hours, I did not find any useful information regarding this topic. Maybe it is just me?

My rears did not light up during the day either.. However, they would light up when I unlock my car even during the day. I always have it in the auto light setting.

I wanted my rear lights to be on all the time when I drive, even during the day, so I got a local person to code that in for me.

For me, I got the car with the rears not lighting up during the day.. I would find it weird if they used to but stopped doing it.

Maybe the computer had a glitch in the system when you were pulling out the connections on the old tails and plugging the new tails in.

Might want to see if someone can code that in for you.

Hmmm... Maybe a local bmw shop will code that in for me????

When I went to the actual bmw dealership and asked everything regarding

this they really refrained from wanting to code anything into the vehicle. I

dont know why, but i guess its much of a hassle.


It is a small thing but I just want those pretty led bars greet me everytime

I unlock I just hope the local shop has better news for me when I pay

them a visit

You should not need coding to do that. I would look in your BC or iDrive menu under lights. I know after a SW update at my dealer my original tails did not light up when I unlocked the car. They did before my SW update. ALL I had to do was reset my light preferences in the BC.

I wish that was the same for my situation.

I tried everything possible I can with the BC configuration.

Even the mechanic at the BMW dealership told me that the configuration is correct.(At this point I dont know if I should believe him or not. I feel as if they dont know anything)

Far as I know the configurations in the car are all set to light up, and it does not.

I also tried to do a 30min reset procedure that I saw on another thread. Pulling out the negative of the car battery for 30 minutes resetting the car.

Did not work.

I think that the only options left for me now is to ask local shop guys to look into the coding of the vehicle.

My LCI tail lights used to light up when I unlock the car. However, it stopped working since this morning. When I turn on the car it turns on (and any other driving mode). Just that when I unlock the car from outside, it no longer slowly light up like before.

Weird..
