BMW CCID check control...

I have been meaning to post this link on how to check when one of your light bulbs is out or is just about to go out. The system measures the resistance in bulb's filament and sometimes will report a bulb is out even before it burns out. Use this great DIY on how to read the CC-ID code....

Basically you...

Scroll the up/down BC button up or down on the indicator stalk until the word "Check Control" comes up.

Press the BC button on the end of the stalk.
A fault appears (Light out)

Press and hold the bc button for two seconds or so and you´ll get the code.
If its a bulb, it´ll be an FRM code

Go to
Scroll down to FOOTWELL MODULE and check.
