i believe there's a DIY somewhere to cut a wire giving that power. As much as I hate that damn thing, I for sure don't feel comfortable cutting things.

I'd recommend the coding route though

yea the cutting route is outdated since coding is so readily available, easily reversible, and not all chopped up for dealers eyes

i would say by your other thread about the auto level, that you have a more serious issue then just the bulb with that headlight.

auto level is the left headlight. i drive around with angel-eyes and foglights, so it doesnt really bother me.

bulb issue is the right headlight, which i'd like fix if possible.

How can you code out the little amber led? I coded out the turn signal bulb but the little led is still on.

Sometimes it works, sometimes doesn't.

BTW can anyone link me on how to get access to those LED's to snip the cable?

I've got the same problem on my E92 328i 2007, the tiny LED in the corner died and now I have an error on my BC. Anyone found a solution how to change this little LED?

Btw, if I cut the wire (one of the methods suggested), will this error on my BC disappear?

I have searched up and down on all forums, and I can not figure out how to code out the tiny little LED lamp from the corner. I was able to code out the marker lights, so they only come on when I signal, but the little LED in the very corner is a mistery. onebadmofo, tried to PM you but was not allowed to, so if anyone knows, I have an 08 E92 that I would love to do it please. Thanks.

I know that if you want to replace the LED you need to open the headlights up. There is a metal piece in the corner that is screwed in place, and that has the LED mounted to it.

Why has no one realized you can pull the pin and remove the wire! No cutting, no coding, no light!!!!!
