Any local E90 LCI guys around today?

Hey guys, I'm pretty sure my passenger side taillight died. The LEDs are super dim and 3 are out altogether. I wanted to know if any locals might've free to let me swap out a taillight and see if it works or if this might be a separate issue exclusive to my car and not just the taillight.

Thanks

Where are you located? I'll be helping another member with the exact same issue tomorrow (Sunday) during a coding appointment. If you're not far away, I'll see if I'll have time to meet with you too.

Sorry I missed you. I didn't get an email notification that you replied for some reason. If I have any appointments in the area this weekend, I'll let you know.

It's certainly not a software issue. It will either be the light or the module. Seems very unlikely that its the module, based on your description.

It's definitely hardware, I've had both sides replaced under warranty. The contacts get corroded and lose the connection.
