DRL's work with one key and not the other?

hey guys,

got the car back from the dealer, and the halos are no longer automatically on in Auto headlamp mode...but they work fine if i turn them to the on option using the rotary dial to control the lighting of the car...

but when i use my second set of keys the halo's are automatically on....

is there a setting in idrive or somewhere that i am missing, its baffling me...

i tried to explain it as clearly as i could, but basically, my halo's come on automatically during the day with one set of keys and not with the other set of keys....

any ideas?

thanks a lot

each keys are personalized, you have to save the setting on each key separately.

I know that a lot of the idrive functions such as radio station favourites are stored against the specific key. So if a second driver gets in the car with the other key the other set of favourites is there. It may be the same with this idrive programming choice.

Try putting the second key in the car (with the other far away if you have comfort access) and program the lights again. See if that keeps the DRLs on.

Going from memory hear, but I think there is a topic called settings, then under lighting should be the option to enable the DRL's.
