Daytime running lights off (Dealer says "Not possible")

7698 Views 19 Replies 15 Participants Last post by  MOPAULY
Called the dealer today to schedule an alignment and asked if they could also turn off my daytime running lights. Dealer said this is not possible. He also asked a tech and tech also said no...

I have a 2006 750i

Any thoughts and advice is appreciated...

the Dealer is mistaken , you can shut your DRL's off .
Just find a coder in your area , or you can buy the OBD 2
plug & download the software & do it yourself .
What he said. :thumbup:

What is amazing is that there are so many BMW service managers that don't have a clue about these cars.
I have 03 745 li with no DRL on . It's cool lights off. Trying to decide if I want the angel eyes on for DRL, when I code the vehicle.

Mine are currently disabled...so it IS possible. :p
I understood this is not possible to code?

It can be programmed but you need to have the right cable and program. Alot of people on here use INPA. If you google INPA or search on here you will get lots of info

It is a ODB2 cable, but not just any ODB2 cable...Do some searching or reading in the programming section.

If you find all that overwhelming, confusing, or if you are just plain lazy like me then you can also have someone code your car for you. I am in the process of having Okee from Triple_O_Coding ([email protected]) code my car remotely (over the internet). He will send you the correct cable and the files needed. Simple, and although not free it is WAY cheaper than the stealership and he can code a bunch of things the dealers either don't know about or won't do. :thumbup:
thanks, what cable ?
Programming codes for BMW 2004 745Li

the Dealer is mistaken , you can shut your DRL's off .
Just find a coder in your area , or you can buy the OBD 2
plug & download the software & do it yourself .
Great info. Thanks.
Can anyone tell me where I can find a list of these programming codes?

Happy driving all.
Mine are off also
Want to turn them on and put May be white LEDs or yellow for drls
for the time and hassle to build your own box, I'd say find a coder or Indy that will do it for you. 10 minutes with Progman is all it takes.
