Curious - what's the benefit to deactivating? What does a cold/hot check do?
TIA

The bulb check warns you if the bulb is out. It sends current to the bulb and expects a response, if not you get a bulb out warning. By defeating it you no longer get that warning. People who want flicker free LED lights deactivate. I'd rather have non LEDs and know when my bulbs are out.

Make sure the mirror adjust switch is toward drivers side, that activates it. Toward passenger side won't work

in addition to that, your car should also have the power folding side mirrors.

Is there a way to enable fog lights with just the parking lights on?

My car is 2016 F56 S automatic if that matters. LED lights.

did you try to do these steps?

Go to Multimedia --> External devices --> select the USB symbol --> Additional media --> Video

then you can select the directory where your video files are stored if needed.

Multimedia is one of the icons from the centre console like telephone, radio, navigation (if equip) , mini connected, etc.*

I got a 2016 F56 MCS.. Since you have a newer version of the centre console, you may want to check your car's manual on how to play video via USB.

The steps that I provided are from the manual. You don't need to do coding for the video playback to work. Video in motion is when you want to continue watching video when the car is moving. I think by default and for safety purposes, the video can only be displayed on the screen when the car is in Park (P) and not in R, N and D.

I thought cant see video (un movement or not) only with coding
