Corona Rings at Unlock

I just installed the CREE LED H8 setup from ModMy3 on my E92. I noticed that the corona rings used to fade in/light up when unlocking the doors. Now they do neither.

I can see them perhaps not fading if the LEDs require less wattage. I'm just not sure if/what the reason is for them not lighting at all. No errors showing on the cluster.

Anyone with similar experiences or some insight on the matter? Thanks in advance.

Perhaps the installation (or you, accidentally) reset the "Welcome Light" setting in iDrive? Settings > Lighting > Welcome light (checked). This preference is stored for each remote, so if you usually use the same key fob but happened to switch to the other one recently, that could also be it.

Nice thought, but I just confirmed that the setting is still active (and I'm using the same key).

Strangely enough, after starting and driving the car out to dinner, it's working now... Just thought I should document this for posterity's sake.

Sorry for the asked and answered thread.

Edit: It appears that unlocking and locking the doors multiple times between starts will create this phenomenon. It happened again... after repeated showings of my new rings. Start the car, problem fixed.
