Question F32 Halo Brightness Adjustment

Need help adjusting brightness of Halo Rings while headlights on. Everywhere I am looking it shows code for it
FEM_BODY 3062 MAPPING_STANDL_V_L_PWM_LEVEL_1 (for left and with R for right). Challenge is that in my F32 there is no Level 1
I see:
.........Standard
..........Reduced
.........Rear
--------Level4
..........Level5

Also Values are different. Anyone done the mode or know how to do it on F32? Thanks!

I just did this on an F32.

You want to change the _STANDARD ones. BMW renamed LEVEL_1 to STANDARD.

Also, the default value is now 10% (it is 8% on F30's). We just used the pull-down and selected 100% for all 4 rings.

make sure you change all 4, the 2 STANDL ones and the 2 PARKL ones.

I think the STANDL are the outside rings and the PARKL are the inside rings.

I don't know what all of the other 7 settings are for or what they do.

Thanks for tips. I would never guess the Park one....

I don't want 100% brightness but would like to get it to 50%. There is no option for 50%. If I remember correctly it was 8%, 10%, 100% and several voltage settings. Do you know which setting to use to get it to 50%?

I did just one and all halos went to 100% MAPPING_STANDL_V_L_PWM_STANDARD...

for the sake of it did also the R and the PARK ones but only doing the STANDL_V_L took the halos from 8% to 100%

I coded mine for 50% too.

Instead of changing the function value in the pull-down list, you can edit the werte value directly. It's the percent PWM value from 00 (0%) to 64 (100%).

Note that the werte values are in hex, not decimal! Don't set the value greater than 64.

100% = werte 64 (6 * 16 + 4 = 100.)

50% = werte 32 (3 * 16 + 2 = 50.)

25% = werte 19 (1 * 16 + 9 = 25.)

The werte doesn't want to save. I am hitting edit, change the value from 0F to 32 in the window but when click off it still shows 0F. Is there a trick to change werte value?

Yes, you need to hit the door looking icon with yellow arrow in the upper right-hand corner of the lower edit window.

You have to click the little door icon in the value editor box, or I think, you can press ctrl-enter to submit it.

Humm, the defaults for this were 10% on the F32, not 8% like I've seen on F30's. Is your car an F32, or an F30/F31?

The guy I coded this for (F32) called and said that he still sees the halos dim when the headlights are on rather than being as bright as the DRL's.

I verified that the the halos were still dimming and checked that the coding took.

I tried re-coding the other 10% values to 100%, but no matter what I tried, I could not get his halos to 100% with the headlights on.

Can anyone verify that they can see the halos at 100% with the head lights active on an F32?
