Still havent gotten the opportunity to do this but I have a question for Allan and system experts.

Is there a way to disable the stupid "Radio Mode Switched On" message?

Another faulty design my BMW. My stereo is completely off and I still get the message on my display with an exclamation point when I turn the engine off.

And by the way, if anyone of you on this thread have a question dying to ask BMW M engineers - please see my thread here and add it to my running list:

I don't see that message
Hold the START button down for several seconds when turning off the engine.

I know......for a complete shut down - press and hold the engine start button for a couple of seconds but as an engineer myself - that message should not be there and be regarded as a fault when my stereo system is already off as I have pressed the volume button already to turn the stereo system off myself.

Update: I just re-read the owners manual. It appears the only thing pushing the volume button does is it turns the "sound output" off.
And that's why I get that message.

So I guess there is no power switch for the stereo system?

That answer makes sense that the radio on/off is really a volume mute, and in the case of the CIC, it does the same thing an pauses video DVD playback as well. I just looked at the code in both the CAPPL and CIC modules and didn't see anything related to the radio visual message.

Another add to your ask BMW M Engineer list perhaps.

Coding for Panic button enable/disable

Hey Guys,

I've already learned so much (big thanks to zerocks1) and just wanted to give back on one of my findings. I wanted the panic button functionality that is usually found in US based cars where you hold the trunk button for a few secs and the alarm sets off so using NCS Dummy 0.5.0.0, I found the modes for a specific module (CAS) which led me to the solution:

To enable Panic button on remote, two things need to be changed:

1) Module: CANS
PANIK_ALARM
nicht_aktiv to aktiv

2) Module: CAS
SONDERTASTE_PANIKALARM
nicht_aktiv to panikalarm

Equally, the above can be reversed to disable for those that find it annoying when wanting to unlock the trunk and the alarm goes off - difference of holding the button for 2 secs (trunk) versus 3 secs or more (panic alarm).

Hope this helps.

Nice find. I hadn't seen that posted anywhere. Keep experimenting, we love guinea pigs!

Good news - got lights to turn on while unlocking.

Module: LMA
WELCOME_LIGHT_ACTIVE
nicht_aktiv > aktiv
WL_AL > aktiv

But I was missing one crucial thing! Set the light switch to auto! and hey presto, welcome lights come on during unlock..

Couldn't figure out a way to get this to work without setting the light switch to auto (A position).

Keep us posted

Oooops. I should have pointed that out. Always something simple. None the less, congrats!

Normal behaviour with welcome lights

Hi All,

Does anyone know if its normal with welcome lights for it not to turn on intermittently? Not sure if there is a delay timer somewhere (I'm aware of the home lights timer in iDrive) that is triggering the lights not to come on sometimes (even when light switch is left in the Auto position).

For example, I could unlock the car in the morning and the lights come on. Do it a few times and its consistent. Leave it for 15-20mins come back and the lights don't come on when unlocking!

Any ideas?
