DCT Shift Lights

Hey all,

I searched and reviewed the manual but couldn't clear this question up completely. On my '11 E93 I have the shift lights turned on in M mode, and they work fine. They also work when I start the car and select it with the stalk/OBC, but the car does not remember the setting and each time I shut the car off, and then restart, the shift lights are not on unless I select it again in the OBC. Is there a way to get the car to remember this setting? Thanks!

I believe you can set it under M key mode, M key mode allows you to bind certain characteristics to the key. Its under the M mode settings and then toggle right several times.

agreed....also, make sure that both the obc and m key settings for the shift lights are activated. at first I only had the shift lights activated via m key settings/idrive, didn't work..I had to activate the setting on the obc as well...

I take it you don't have iDrive? My setting sticks, but I used iDrive to set it.
