My car is a pre-LCI (06'). One of my first upgrades is installing LCI tail lights using the Bruce Miranda adapters. It is still installed and working fine.

Anyway, that was a few years ago. I recently took my car to the shop and had them register a new battery. A few days later, I noticed that the tail outside corner lights are on when the car is in daytime running light mode. However it is off when the car is driving at night and the all the lights are on.

Doing some research, I find that it has something to do with the outside corner lights in DRL set to ACTIV.

How should the fix be approached based on my car's hardware combination? Should it just be approached as programming as if the car came stock with the LM2 (even if the car is pre-LCI)? But then how will that work if I have the Bruce Miranda adapters for the tail? Unfortunately nomis_nech moved away so I can't take my car to him. Also, the shop that worked on my car pretty much had no clue on what happened to my tail lights.
Very weird. When the battery was done was it a BMW shop? Perhaps they had registration problems so did a software update and it changed the LM2 settings?

I would approach it with just changing LM2 settings as if it came with the car. With the adapters you may find that some settings have no affect because they are hard wired in the lights.

Any idea what the "dual voltage" code does in LM1?
Was trying to get the angel eyes to be brighter, but as they are LED-s, there's probably a resistor killing the voltage somewhere, so did nothing for me. Maybe someone could test it out

Not sure where I am doing wrong, but whatever I do to update, it doesnt seem to work. When I read back after updating, it reads original values itself, no the updated ones. It doesnt give me any error while coding, everything seems to be normal, coding active and coding ended.

Any suggestions? I badly need to disable the disclaimer, its driving me crazy and a few others, mainly auto fold and unfold mirrors when you lock and unlock the car, rain sensor activated sunroof closing etc.

thanks in advance.

I have the poverty spec m-ask, 6 speaker stereo powered via stereo and added aftermarket amp, dropped levels by changing it from STEREO to HIFI in the MASK ecu...also turned off the LOUD option as presumed it would help further

Alongside HIFI, there is a TOP HIFI and a FLAT option you can select too...changing to top hifi gave me extra options on idrive too, but none worked (eq, reverb etc) so changed back to hifi. I didnt try flat so not sure how this fairs, but overall switching from stereo to hifi drops output to about half
