Not quite sure what you mean. At least in the F10, F01 and the F30 it works.

Ok, so let me get this straight..

We can get the display to stay in day mode (white) but as a result, you lose the auto toggle of the iDrive screen between day/night.

Is there a way to toggle the iDrive screen between night/day mode via button assigned to presets 1-8? (sorry, my car is still in the middle of the ocean so I can't test...)

The toggle does not change the iDrive from day to night mode, it just changes its brightness when the car is in night mode. You do loose that, but you can still adjust the brightness via the iDrive itself. As far as I am concerned, a minor inconvenience in exchange of getting rid of the ugly orange night mode in the cluster.

I think I might have some insight into what the problem is.

You Jeg23 (and possibly all f10s?) have the extended instrument cluster.
If you don't have that one, only the little bc part showing date/cons. etc will move from white to orange at night. The backlight of the gauges (ie tacho) will always be orange.

As for the 'iDrive nightmode' marsb007 probably means the navigation day/night switch.
As memory serves, I think you can assign a preset button to this. Alternatively, leave it in daymode it doesn't bother me that much personally.

That's exactly what I meant... I guess I'll wait until I get my car. Seems I had the wrong ship, but when I touched base with my CA, he gave me all relevant info (I'm on KLine and not WW).

Btw I tried this for you and both the modes (day/night) as well as the menu where to change them can be assigned to a button.

@JEG23 - While you were testing this, did you come across the opposite whereas the Night Mode is always on? Maybe Werte=00?

Shawn,

I did:

KOMBI->3007 KI_Dimmung, 24->DIM_NACHT_AUS->werte=FF

Orange all the time.

Thanks!

So I wonder which one wins if both DIM_NACHT_AUS and DIM_NACHT_EIN are set to Werte=FF.

It probably will flash a message urging you stop messing with it

You can easily change a simple code so that it remains in daytime mode all the time:

KOMBI-->3007 KI_Dimmung, 24-->DIM_NACHT_EIN-->Werte=FF

The default value is Werte=0A. This hexadecimal value relates to the sensitivity of the sensor that determines the threshold at which the display changes into its nighttime mode. When set to “FF” it stays on the daytime mode constantly.

Attachment 352316Attachment 352317

At least for the F10, you can still select the color of the decorative lines in the extended display (orange or gray), depending on your preference, using the code in my earlier post.

KOMBI-->3000 Anzeige_Konfiguration-->HINTERGRUND_FARBE_TAG-->Grau or Orange

Do you mean you can't find it in the ecu?

Or possibly you don't yet know about Esys and coding, in that case you will find this thread interesting:

Is this still working for everyone for the F10? Someone posted that after changing this it reverted back to amber after 10mins.

What was originally posted in the other thread was using an entirely different HUD FDL Code, not these KOMBI FDL codes.

Sorry, I do not. I haven't bothered testing it as I am fond of 6WB the way it is.

Lol. Very tempting.

Your NV background pedestrian detection codes worked flawlessly btw. Excellent write-up. Will try to post a video of the results soon. People here need to know how good a job you and others have done for cars with NV, which until this point has remained turned off most of the time for my case.

Thanks a bunch. :thumbsup:

If coded correctly will this daytime instrument cluster work on the E70 (X5)?
