F80 LCI taillight retrofit coding.

recently purchased a set of LCI taillights and wanted to see if there currently is coding available that I can do for them to function properly. I would choose to do this myself over tapping the wires in my trunk if at all possible. thanks!

You need custom wiring harnesses for both the Inner and Outer Light Assembly, and Coding.

awesome! thanks! anything else? there will be no flickering correct? I was looking at the f30/80 coming guide last night and there were some settings for that but I think that was only for the replacement bulbs correct? thanks again Shawn. I'm going to have some time tomorrow and if it's ok with you I may try and make a guide for the sli adaptor I installed. I took a few pics during the install and figured out the correct wires. my install was behind the instrument cluster.

That's it, and no flickering for OEM LCI LED Tailights.

so that coding basically adds the functionality for the inner brake/turning light? I see that I have to run 1 new wire from each inner light assembly and attach it to the wiring harness near the battery. just making sure. thanks man!

Yes, that coding changes / adds correct coding for LCI lights.

You wrote you already had the wiring harnesses though, so now I am confused. You need to adapt 4 to 6 Pin connections.

Does anybody knows which pins need to be added on the REM module and which one goes to which side?

Hey Shawn,
What do these codes do exactly? And where can i get a custom harness from? The custom harness's (Convert 6 to 4 wires) I have seen you still need to use a clamp supplied scotchlock to run the wire (5th wire) from inner taillight to the outer taillight.
