Easy way to disable angel eye dimming!

I was messing around this evening with my car. Eventually, I managed to disabling the angel eye dimming.

PWM_RL_BL_1_FKT_SL
Change value to wert_01

Thats it, Enjoy!

ps. this only disables the dimming of the angel eyes and increases the voltage to 9.7v, which is what they run at when the head lights are off. By modifying the nettodat the voltage can be increased even more; however, that's more complicated.

Just finished changing the nettodat file. It's freakin' amazing how bright a set of GP Thunders can get!

well just bought my car, and now you've convinced me to get GP Thunders.
Now I just have to figure out what PWM_RL_BL_1_FKT_SL is.

Definitely not in NFRM, just checked.
Also don't notice my angel eyes dimming at all when the bixenons are on, do they all dim by default?

Early build (05/2005) 2005 325i Canada spec.
Not sure about FRM version, will have to check when I hook back up to the car.

Note that I don't notice any angel eye dimming when I turn on my headlights either...??

sounds like to me you have original FRM and they do not dim then, i've got a 2009 with FRM2 and they do dim.

FRM 3 is the latest for the LCI tails and LED lighting

Does this mean you increase the power to the bulbs?

Could you do that to a set of LEDs AE ?

Depends which ones. Won't work with lux since the driver is a constant current regulator. Any voltage from 5-32v DC will output 1A.

All the other angel eyes with just current limiting resistors will get brighter, but life will decrease. They already have a high failure rate as it is....

That's correct! The early FRM doesn't have the Welcome Light feature, so the only way to get AEs or fogs or low beams as Welcome Lights is to wire it or get a harness unfortunately.
