2018 F30/32 LCI rear fog coding

Has anyone figured out how to code the rear fog lamp function for the new 2018 F30/32/82 LED tail lamp clusters? Please note that these are not the same as Euro LED tail lamps already discussed in this forum; they have different reverse lamp sections and no apparent fog section, but it must be there if this version is now standard on the same 2018 cars in Europe.

I was able to make the correct headlamp switch modification (grind off 3 tabs) and did the coding that worked on my old 2015 F32

[For reference:
FEM -> 3060 -> NSL_Verbaut (Value= Verbaut)
REM -> 3063 -> Mapping_Nebelschlussl_L_output (Value = nsl_l)
REM -> 3063 -> Mapping_Nebelschlussl_L_function (Value=nebelschlusslicht)
REM -> 3063 -> Mapping_Nebelschlussl_R_output (Value = nsl_r)
REM -> 3063 -> Mapping_Nebelschlussl_R_function (Value = nebelschlusslicht)]

The yellow fog lamp symbol lights in the instrument cluster, but nothing happens in the tail lamp.

Picture of new 2018 tail lamp is attached, and can also be seen at: http://www.motortrend.com/2018-bmw-4...pe-tail-light/.

Thanks a lot for any ideas!

2018 BMW F30/32 rear fog coding SOLVED

Answering my own question, after a bit of experimentation, I was able to program the outer (fender) turn signal lamps as fogs, as follows:

FEM -> 3060 -> NSL_Verbaut (Value= Verbaut)
REM -> 3063 -> Mapping_Nebelschlussl_L_output (Value = 0x20)
REM -> 3063 -> Mapping_Nebelschlussl_L_function (Value=nebelschlusslicht)
REM -> 3063 -> Mapping_Nebelschlussl_R_output (Value = 0x21)
REM -> 3063 -> Mapping_Nebelschlussl_R_function (Value = nebelschlusslicht)

Everything else works as before. This also works for F82.

As everyone says, "Do it your own risk."

Now, does anyone know the coding for the inner (trunk lid) turn signal lamps? Experimentation got me nowhere -- perhaps there is a "dependency", , ,

Funny... I had just taken pictures of my car and was planning to post them with a similar question.

I tried changing values to the ones you listed:

Quote:
REM -> 3063 -> Mapping_Nebelschlussl_L_output (Value = 0x20)
REM -> 3063 -> Mapping_Nebelschlussl_R_output (Value = 0x21)
But the werte box border turned red and I got an "invalid input" error when I tried to save it. Any thoughts?

I have a 2018 440i with every option except track handling, headlight washers and heated steering wheel.

Try:

REM -> 3063 -> Mapping_Nebelschlussl_L_output (Value = 00x20)
REM -> 3063 -> Mapping_Nebelschlussl_R_output (Value = 00x21)
