You can unplug the iBus adapter and see if the light issue is caused by the Ibus adapter settings. If they are still out with the iBus adapter unplugged, then you will need to send a blank .man file to the LCM with NCS Expert.

How did you get there?

Completed full bushing / ball joint refresh. Every single on other than tie rod ends that were replaced about 18 months ago. Biggest project I have taken on with this beast but it drives AMAZING NOW!

I gently snugged everything in my garage and had the alignment tech torque all the loaded bushings when on their 4 post rack. Thankfully the alignment shop is only 4 blocks from my home.

Prepping for my new retrofit 4.8iS front bumper currently in the paint shop. I tested my new front PDC harness and 4 used PDC sensors. I had to reprogram the PDC module for 8 sensors from the 4 in the rear only and plug everything in. It was literally a beep fest holding all the sensors pointed up without triggering on the ceiling of our garage. Ended up appointing the wife as my assistant In the end, everything showed good and patiently awaiting the call from the paint shop letting me know it's ready.

Next up will be the $700 in front flares.

Pretty boring, but between ducking in/out of the house to catch the Broncos game (also pretty boring), I changed oil/filter, rotated tires (5 wheel rotation with full sized spare), and roughly adjusted headlights to aim higher. My nephew took the E53 skiing at Breckenridge Saturday with 4 other USAFA Cadets. The driver's window regulator died on him. Arghhhhhh.

AM.

Cool Routine work

Took the wifey's X5 to the local Euro wrench and had the front radius rods replaced (bushings were shot) and new motor mounts installed. Idles like a Rolls now instead of a jalopy.
