Basic mode are macros or shortcuts to expert mode
that he wrote.
You’re basically turning off voltage monitoring that was
intended for Edison bulbs. That would give you a blown bulb
error if they were to burn out.
Not meant for LEDs

Yes, I understand.

What I'm trying to figure out is if "coded the indicators in the basic mode - to not monitor and set to LED" does something different than the steps listed for expert mode... and what those different toggles are.

I suspect the basic mode steps are at minimum hitting FRA_H_L_IS_LED and FRA_H_R_IS_LED (left and right rear turn signals), but I don't know what else is being done, as it's not a very specific list.

Mini has been known to rearrange the menus, ( what you see in expert mode). During dealer recodes .
So Stephens shortcuts tend to fail.
Thus I do expert mode only. I then have complete control of parameters.

Basic mode doesn’t cover everything possible.
Like for instance: brake force display. Which steps in expert mode have been discovered here on NAM.

Well, that's what I'm trying to find out – the specific parameters that "Coded the indicators in the basic mode - to not monitor and set to LED" translates to.

I don't even have basic mode. I have ESYS (the original "expert mode").
That's why I need whole thing in terms of expert mode toggles.

Search here for BimmerCode expert instructions for led coding.
They equate to e-sys commands.

Do not change short circuit.

these will be found in esys.
Do the rear turn signals too
FRA_H



BL_R_IS_LED => aktiv
BL_R_WARMUEBERWACHUNG => nicht_aktiv
BL_R_KALTUEBERWACHUNG => nicht_aktiv

BL_L_IS_LED => aktiv
BL_L_WARMUEBERWACHUNG => nicht_aktiv
BL_L_KALTUEBERWACHUN => nicht_aktiv

Ok, so "Coded the indicators in the basic mode - to not monitor and set to LED" means:

FRA_H_L[R]_IS_LED => aktiv
FRA_H_L[R]_WARMUEBERWACHUNG => nicht_aktiv
FRA_H_L[R]_KALTUEBERWACHUNG => nicht_aktiv

Right? Nothing else from the 'basic mode' step?

-------

What about BFD_L[R]_IS_LED (et. al.)?
Right now that's set as 'nicht_aktiv' with my stock tail lights ... shouldn't that be modified to LED as well with the new ones?

Correct.
Funny you mentioned BFD.
No one has brought that up, not even me!!

I failed to mention that I went ahead and coded the BFD
to LED when I swapped my bulbs to LED. Long before I
Started coding for BFD.
SoI can’t tell you it needs to be done, but it didn’t hurt to do it.

FIY I’m not using UJ lights. I’m using LED Euro tai lights ( amber turn signals)
Did a swap for LED brake and turn signal bulbs months ago. As only the running lights were LED rung.

Rear fogs coded to work as another set of brake lights
I was able to code my rear fogs to work as brake lights. But somehow I messed something up and now the main brake light o my lights up the lower part and not the full circle. I have factory led.

I just looked at mine and I have the same problem. I didn't notice when I coded the rear fogs as brake lights. I guess I was too excited that I made them light up that I didn't see the mains only on half.

Help, anyone?

Photo please

When you say circle, I think the LED which is the running light, not brake light.
Brake lights have upper and lower bulbs.

Here is a photo of mine. It looks like the top bulb in the brake lamps are not lit now that I have coded the rear fogs as brake lamps. Is this right? Thoughts?

Not right.
Use a backup that BimmerCode stores.
