Amber Headlights Coding

There's a local to me who has the ability to program bmw stuff and he tried tinkering with the z4 head lights. So far he was able to get the middle light to be off similar to the euro programming.

The point of all this is to get rid of that egg yolk ambers under the head light. I've read the threads about breaking them or doing the full euro coding, however I would just like them off. Can anyone chime into which keyword or parameter changes this light :



In red is what I'd like to turn off, the white has already been turned off.

Thank you

SIDEMARKER_US set to nicht_aktiv (circled in white)

From what we had tried it was off in all switch positions. It would still flash for turn signals.

E86Z - can you confirm Pungo's ONE line disabled ALL parking lights? I recall last time I attempted this, there were THREE bulbs and I was only able to disable the outer 2, but could not disable the same inner one as yours.

It seems like there are multiple ways going about this, whether it's 1 line that disables all, or disabling each individual light. Hoping to get some clarity from those that have done it successfully. Ideally I'd like to turn off ALL of them, but keep them intact for turn signal purposes.

As we had tested so far it still worked as a turn signal. The third light I will keep on as it does not bother me unless someone can chime in with the keyword to disable it.

I will take pictures of each different scenario once it is done.

So Pungo's code didn't disable the 3rd (inner) light?

pungo's code should disable the left most light in the picture I've posted.
I do not have the equipment to code myself, I will be meeting with someone who does soon.

I already try it, it only disable one part, but the other part stills on, It does not look good with only one part off, we need another code to disable the other part.

Bump for update, simply looking for the one line that disables ALL 3 amber bulbs or the 3 individual coding lines needed to disable each individual bulb. It's the inner most bulb closest to the grills that we are having trouble identifying.

Dude, I have all the software and cables but not the time and patience to figure it out. If you're dedicated to figure this out, lmk. I'll let you borrow them only if you can learn how to recode my AMP

lol screw the amp, just get intravee. digital music via carver system sounds pretty good. radio and aux sound like sh*t.

ORRR you can figure out the headlights and I'll swing by your place with a six pack as a token of appreciation for doing mine! seems like pungo posted the code for disabling the ambers:
