"check side lights" error message ?

I keep getting when the lights are on to "check side lights" I have no running or stops or turn signals out. I did not check reverse lights.

The side lights that flash on the fender when the turn signals are on work fine.

Anyone have an idea if there is another light somewhere? Mirrors?

I would have never checked that.

They were replaced or updated to LED halo bulbs about 4 years ago.

LED bulbs without a resistor will trigger the error. Are they currently working? I recommend the LED set from Weisslicht if you go the LED route. You can also code out the hot/cold check from them with BMW Scanner 1.4 or INPA if they work and you just want to get rid of the check error.

I just checked and sure enough the right/passenger side is out. On this model they only come on when the head lights are on. Its very hard to see them.

I've never got a code with these bulbs but I did not install them so I dint know what in there. They are LED. I looked up the ones you mentioned from Weissslict and ECS has them, might as well install them.

Thanks again!!!
