How to turn off always on headlight markers?

Post by SmurfN »

I assume it has to be programmed somehow? Im not sure how its done, since the previous owner is the one who made the blinkers always on.
Didn't pass my MOT because of this. (even tho it was fine the last time). :roll:

How would i go about doing this?
its a 2006 E87 with xenon headlights.

Sorry totally off topic, but what's that front bumper? it's not the OEM one, (at least not for the UK) looks like one off a more modern M car.

You can do it in Bimmercode easily it's a very versatile coding app but you'd have to purchase the full version and you may need to get yourself a Veepeak ODB2 adapter because those cheap Ebay ELMs are very unreliable.

Bimmercode doesn't currently support pre-LCI E8x models like OPs.
