Now he'll have to take that leave 2 son of internal fires left and right side to the rear case REM located next to the battery

This manipulation was used to transplant on foreign flashing

[CODING]

The coding of new fires is not required, since there is no error on the idrive but against there will flicker flashing at each startup

If like me you do not want flickering lights here is the mod has to do with the E-sys software

Flashing Rear:

REM 3061 FRA_H_L_KALTUEBERWACHUNG /nicht_aktiv
REM 3061 FRA_H_L_WARMUEBERWACHUNG /nicht_aktiv
REM 3061 FRA_H_L_IS_LED /aktiv
REM 3061 FRA_H_R_KALTUEBERWACHUNG /nicht_aktiv
REM 3061 FRA_H_R_WARMUEBERWACHUNG /nicht_aktiv
REM 3061 FRA_H_R_IS_LED /aktiv

Reverse lights:

REM 3061 RFS_L_KALTUEBERWACHUNG /nicht_aktiv
REM 3061 RFS_L_WARMUEBERWACHUNG /nicht_aktiv
REM 3061 RFS_L_IS_LED /aktiv
REM 3061 RFS_R_KALTUEBERWACHUNG /nicht_aktiv
REM 3061 RFS_R_WARMUEBERWACHUNG /nicht_aktiv
REM 3061 RFS_R_IS_LED /aktiv

REM / 3061 / BFD_R_WARMUEBERWACHUNG /nicht_aktiv

Hey guys. I ran a new wire from each inner lci taillight to the box by the battery. Which slots do i put the wires in for the inner turn signals/ brake lights to work? The locations in this guide are currently already used in my F80 for the slot numbers.
Everything else is working besides that. Thanks!

Hello

Yep. Already had it done. Thanks anyways! Did your method use flashing or tapping for the inner turn signals?
