Pathway lights quit working

Randomly, the pathway lights have stopped working when I unlock the vehicle with the remote. At first I thought I had key B, instead of using my regular key A. After figuring out I was using the correct key with my settings, I checked the lighting settings in Idrive. All boxes are checked appropriately, but still not working; however, the door handle lights are working.

My battery is relatively new and I'm not getting any discharge indicators/lights. Any other ideas?

I also noticed the "follow me home" lights aren't working when you pull the stalk backward after turning the vehicle off. At least I don't think they're working, I don't recall if they ever worked originally. Every other BMW I have/had has that feature.

Is your headlight switch in Auto? If not you're operating in the dark.

Yes on auto. Adaptive lights are working just fine. It just seems to be the pathways and follow me home.
