All of a sudden my welcome lights on my E92 LCI have stopped working.

They are enabled in the iDrive menu and I have tried with the light switch in auto, 0 and fully on modes, when it has been dark outside.

The only lights that come on when unlocking the doors are the door handle lights.

Any ideas?

Usually a sign that the battery is starting to die, the computer starts turning off non essential electrics

+1 on the battery, other things will start to not work like the rear screen demister, bang in a new battery and all will be well again.

The replies here are spot on.I had the same issue yesterday and just replaced my battery. Now they work all the time.

Thanks for the info. The battery low message did pop up fairly recently so seems to make sense.

£102 seems like a good price - includes fitting?Is there a difference between batteries used in start/stop cars and non-start/stop cars?

Which is the right one from Eurocarparts. When typing in my reg, some of them are £390, like this one:

ECP have a discount code on at the minute, 102 wasn't fitted or coded as I am miles away from them. head over their thread in the classified section and ask them what battery is needed for yours.

Or one of these perhaps - Ctek MXS 5.0 (for AGM batteries).
Still edging towards buying anew battery though!

The cold weather also makes batteries perform worse.
I'm about due a new one myself. Had the low battery warning and the lights not coming on. Not ideal during these shorter days and longer nights. used the CTEK on it over night.

My door lights and cabin lights come on but the headlights don't, despite the option day time lights being on in the lights setting... I've not had any battery related lights on the dash come up either.
