Halo rings not lighting up upon unlock

I've searched everywhere but can't seem to find a solution to my problem.

The Halo Rings should light up upon unlocking the car but they don't. Everything in the computer is configured for the rings to light up and my lights are always set to "auto".

Battery is also fine since it just got changed less than half a year ago. I don't think the rings ever lit up ever since I bought the car. It just came to my attention since a family friend's 07 328i had the rings light up so I was curious.

Any one know the issue here? Thanks.

Your "welcome" lights are selected to be "on"
I know when mine didn't light up was due to a weak battery, you replaced yours but that doesn't mean anything...check the voltage.
Also your doors are locked for a few minutes before unlocking right?

I'm wondering if your car is not coded to have welcome lights which to me is so stupid that some cars have some features and others don't. Make it all one!

Of you unlocked and locked the car more than twice before driving then it will stop lighting up the next time.

No, it will not light up even the first time.

Is your light switch on auto? If not then there is your problem. Can't tell from your avatar but do you have xenon headlights?

What do you mean your computer shows you have lights turned on upon unlock?

Based on your build date, your car has FRM1 and it doesn't support welcome lights. You will need to retrofit FRM2 or FRM3 or find a way to hardwire it.

my has a mind of its own
i replaced my cheap halogen with depos. After a few days/weeks it stopped lightning up whenever i unlocked the car. Idk what the issue is because there are times where all the sudden it would light up upon unlocking it. Also the rear license plate lights react the same way. Help!?

There is a sound symbol, and light symbol for unlock. Both of them are active.

How come this other 2007 328i has it? He doesn't have the sound option upon unlock though...

I do have the door handle lights as well as xenons.

The light symbol is for the flashing of the turn signals upon unlock. Sound option is only there if you have the alarm installed.

BMW changed to the FRM2 starting in 03/2007 production.

Ahhh, I see. This might be the reason why then.

Thanks for your help

Since I probably have an FRM1 I just wanted to point that out. Not sure if there is a difference between e90/e92

Also note I have CA on mine.

E92/E93 had their own FRM until FRM2 post 03/2007.
