Did you press the M button? Check your settings on your i-drive.

I am not sure, but I know that some options are recorded via the key you use at the time, so if you switched keys you may get different setting.......Steve

The shift lights are set to "ON" in both the M settings and the key dependent settings. Is there somewhere else I need to turn them on?
