Mein Auto: 2004 BMW 745Li
Exterior Light Malfunctions!

My 2004 745Li is telling me a few errors, but the lights are working..

Right Front Turn Signal Malf
Left License Plate Malf
Left Rear Turn Malf
Right Front Fog Malf
Left Front Parking Malf
Right Backup Lamp Malf
Left High Beam Malf

Again, all of these errors on my dashboard, but the lights that are referenced and all others seem to work. Except the left license plate light, which I replaced and got to work, but the dash still states there is a malfunction there. Any ideas?

I just had to replace the battery, but I haven't registered it. I'm waiting on the cable to come in to do so. I'll give that a try, thanks.

Yep, that will mostly be the cause of your problem. You must always register your battery. Good Luck.

Mein Auto: 750i
Parking lamp malfunction 2006 750i

Driver side parking lamps don't come on on my 2006 750i with now 100K miles. The same thing happened 14 months ago and after driving on for about 4 weeks, the lamps came back on and everything was fine until now. Has anyone made similar experiences?
Thanks.
