Bimmercode - How to use rear lights as signal lights.

So, I found this video.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GN01Pa91PcM

Thought it was cool. Came here for help but I also found the solution.

I tried it but it didn't work properly.

With some help from the video creator, I managed to get it working for the X1 ECU!



Here's how it goes:

Bimmercode > Body Domain Controller > Expert mode.

The codes below are found in LceLampMapping3 and 4.

What to modify: Keep in mind the names might be somewhat different in the X1. H2 becomes 2H and H becomes 1H. Other than that, this should hopefully work.

MAPPING_TAGFAHRL_H2_L_OUTPUT - sl_2_l
MAPPING_TAGFAHRL_H2_L_FUNCTION - Value 0x06
MAPPING_TAGFAHRL_H2_L_PRIORITY - Priority 1

MAPPING_TAGFAHRL_H2_R_OUTPUT - sl_2_r
MAPPING_TAGFAHRL_H2_R_FUNCTION - Value 0x07
MAPPING_TAGFAHRL_H2_R_PRIORITY - Priority 1
--
MAPPING_TAGFAHRL_H_L_OUTPUT - sl_l
MAPPING_TAGFAHRL_H_L_FUNCTION - Value 0x06
MAPPING_TAGFAHRL_H_L_PRIORITY - Priority 1

MAPPING_TAGFAHRL_H_R_OUTPUT - sl-r
MAPPING_TAGFAHRL_H_R_FUNCTION - Value 0x07
MAPPING_TAGFAHRL_H_R_PRIORITY - Priority 1
--
MAPPING_STANDL_H1_L_PRIORITY - Priority 3
MAPPING_STANDL_H1_R_PRIORITY - Priority 3
--
MAPPING_STANDL_H2_L_PRIORITY - Priority 4
MAPPING_STANDL_H2_R_PRIORITY - Priority 4
--
If you also want to disable the orange signal light and only use rear lights for signal, complete the following.

MAPPING_BLINKER_H_L_PWM_LEVEL_1 - 00
MAPPING_BLINKER_H_L_PWM_LEVEL_r - 00

I tried it but it doesn't really work properly on the X1. Can anyone familiar with the functions of the codes tell me how to debug this and make this work on the X1? It triggers both rear lights when I use it.

I also have a few things coded, lights wise I have hyperblink. I don't know if these would interact or not.

This is the code he posted:

MAPPING_TAGFAHRL_H2_L_OUTPUT - sl_2_l
MAPPING_TAGFAHRL_H2_L_FUNCTION - Value 0x06
MAPPING_TAGFAHRL_H2_L_PRIORITY - Priority 1

MAPPING_TAGFAHRL_H2_R_OUTPUT - sl_2_r
MAPPING_TAGFAHRL_H2_R_FUNCTION - Value 0x07
MAPPING_TAGFAHRL_H2_R_PRIORITY - Priority 1
--
MAPPING_TAGFAHRL_H_L_OUTPUT - sl_l
MAPPING_TAGFAHRL_H_L_FUNCTION - Value 0x06
MAPPING_TAGFAHRL_H_L_PRIORITY - Priority 1

MAPPING_TAGFAHRL_H_R_OUTPUT - sl-r
MAPPING_TAGFAHRL_H_R_FUNCTION - Value 0x06
MAPPING_TAGFAHRL_H_R_PRIORITY - Priority 1
--
MAPPING_STANDL_H1_L_PRIORITY - Priority 3
MAPPING_STANDL_H1_R_PRIORITY - Priority 3

MAPPING_STANDL_H2_L_PRIORITY - Priority 4
MAPPING_STANDL_H2_R_PRIORITY - Priority 4

The first thing you need to be aware of is that the layout of rear light clusters on the F48 varies between markets (I.e brake light, indicator light, whether led or not). In brief bulbs/led can be in different position). There are also different regulations, for example flashing brake light when doing high speed emergency braking is not permitted in the US but is std in EU (can be coded). Using coding for a different model in a different market will often not give the results you expect.

Yep, which is why I wanted to ask if there was someone here that has perhaps done this and would know how to sort this out. Because it works, just not properly!

I have hyperblink coded in, that's why.

If I were to code this will blinking speed remain the same. I do not want “hyperblink” as you stated above

Yes, hyperblink is a separate code. I have long coded it out.

Neworgri - can you provide update on how coding has performed over time as well as how to not have hyperblink?

No issues whatsoever, performs great!

Hyperblink is a separate code and has nothing to do with this.

Hi Neworgri,

I also tried "Rear DayLights as Signal Lights". It's fun is not it.

Thank you.



P.S.
Since I did backup, I can always return.

Hello, has anyone done or know how to make the fog light turn on at the position of the light at 0? I wanted to connect the fog with the headlight at 0 because the angel eyes get stronger, when I turn on the headlight the angel eye lowers the intensity.
