Uncoding LCI tail lights

Hi Folks

I'm selling my 335i unfortunately so I've returned it to stock. I've put the pre-LCI tail lights back on and used Carly to code all the voltage checks back in. However, the outer tail lights now don't illuminate!

Indicators work. Fog lights work. Just not the outer 'driving' tail lights. Inner tail lights are fine! I've checked the bulbs with a multimeter and they are fine.

Have I missed something? Something in a module other than FRM?

I've got a coding laptop too if I need to use that but I did initially code the LCI lights with Carly.

Thanks

Code your FRM module back to default with NCSExpert and an Expert Mode profile.

Thanks for the tip and apologies for the delay.

I've just been out to try and sort this. I've used NCS Expert with an expert mode profile (with manipulation off) and used FA_WRITE (I also tried SG_CODIEREN) to write defaults back to the FRM module but still the outer tail-lights don't work. Indicators work fine, but not the tail-lights!

I also tried pulling a TRC file, editing the nicht_aktiv to aktiv for the cold/warm bulb checks and writing that (with manipulation back on) but no dice.

I've used a multimeter to confirm the bulbs are ok too. I'm baffled.

Any other tips anyone?

Thanks in advance
