e90 335i Software Issues with Angel Eyes and Brake Pad Sensor?
I'm having some issues with my 07 e90 335i that I recently bought.
First, I installed a pair of Umnitza's Predator Ice V5s. A week later my driver side angel eye went out. It still wasn't working even after trying a new bulb from Umnitza, and the original yellow bulb. I got the headlight assembly checked by a third party shop and they said that this was caused by an issue with the module that controls the headlights (I can't remember exactly what its called).
Second, today the red lift and brake light signal came on. According to the manual this means that my brake pads are past due for replacement. However, the indicator that gives you prior notice to replace the pads never came on (the yellow lift indicator with a mileage countdown). I bought the car from a BMW dealership used at 44,000 miles about two months ago and have only done 2,000 miles thus far. Maryland tends to be pretty strict about how much brake pad has to be left when a used car is being sold, so having this issue was very surprising. After doing some searching in this forum, I found that this might be due to a software issue.
Also, the week after I bought the car they replaced the radio unit and had to do some reprogramming to set up the iPod dock. Not sure if they would have any effect on what's going on.
Does anyone have any idea what is going on and what I should do? I really appreciate the help. Thanks.
