2011 328i iDrive System says Rear Turn Signal Malfunction.... but works fine?

Hey guys,


So for some reason today my iDrive system kept dinging with a reminder about the Rear Right Turn Signal Malfunction....


However, the error occurs ocassionally, and I had someone stand behind the car and turned on the signal and they said it worked. At night when I turn right I get the error but in my mirror and I can see that the light is active. What is going on? Do I need to take it in the dealership? I am out of warranty...

The car was owned by my uncle. At a 4-way stop, someone find stop ad nailed the right front side of the car. It was only $3k to fix the car but it was handed a salvage title and then a rebuilt title. He got a new x5 so gave it to me. so I am pretty sure there is no warranty.

Might be loose bulb. I replaced bulbs and got rear brake malfunction several times and looking at the bulb closely saw that the glass had deteriorated and loose. Try some bulb grease or try getting a tight fit on the bulb and it should take care of it. 2008 335i coupe 6mt prem nav sport comfort Titan silver corral red.

I popped open the cover in my truck and pushed the cables in. I turned on the blink about 10-15 times and it did not go off.... We shall see tomorrow....

How does 3k in damage warrant a salvage title?

Well that alert came back on again.... But now it only does it once out of 5 or 6 times I use the signal. The sound is annoying... Anyway to turn it off? I already have an appointment on Monday with the dealer...............

I couldn't tell you... It was pure body damage too... Needed the right fender, right headlight assembly, dented out a spot on the hood and it was good to go. My Uncle just bought out the lease had an indy mechanic fix it up and now I have a previously salvaged 328Xi....


Anyways, is there a way to disable idrive sounds?

The bulb holder is probably broken. I had that happen on the rear left; I pulled out the holder and saw that one of the bulbs fused to the socket in the holder. I'd pull the holder out and inspect it.

So I need to replace the holder and the bulb? Or will I need to replace just the holder?

If your question is do you need to buy bulbs and the holder, the holder comes with bulbs attached. (They did with the E92... I'm pretty sure with all E9Xs).

Ah... Gotcha. Thanks for the tip. I'll upload a video clip of what my light is doing. I opened te panel from my trunk and fidgeted with the cable and the singing is gone but. Agee lights in the corner do not work.... I found someone post that a new light is around $30-$50 so I am off to find te part number.....
