For those who installed LCI tailights and do not have anyone around to code...HELP!

For those who have taken their cars to the dealer, what did you tell them? I made an appointment for next Monday at my dealer just in case I cant find anyone to code it locally...I told the dealer that I installed the 11+ LCI tail lights in my car and have me the basic "well you need to install the FRM3 blah blah blah...". I told him this was not necessary and all the service tech would need to do is just code/disable the bulbcheck with an autologic tool. Will they know what to do? I also have a tune on the car--will that be erased.


I don't want to drive 100 miles to the nearest member who can do it

The dealer doesn't have an Autologic. That's an indy shop tool.

We do remote coding all the time. Let us know if you would like a quote!

Do you think the local "German Specialty" independent shop could do it? They specialize in all german makes, specifically BMW and MB...hm.


I texted Mike about it and while I am tempted to get more things coded to reflect the price, I am not ready to get other things coded yet. I just want the LCI tails coded first and foremost!

You would have to call and find out. It's an expensive tool so most shops won't have one.

Yes they can. It's located within the CIP/RETROFITS section and can be performed in a matter of minutes.

Most reputable independents will have an autologic in hand, with current subscription.

Thanks so much for your help I will print off any information I find in there and give it to them just in case.
