    Hi

    my welcome light feature no longer operates, any idea why? idrive has the function ticked off and the headlight is always on auto. used to function, just stopped working. resetting the idrive does nothing, tried both transmitters without success

    thanks

    Does your steering wheel heater, heated seats, and rear defrost work when you first start the car? Does your CD changer shuffle when the car is started? Any of these could be signs that your battery is undercharged. If you can't monitor these features you may just want to charge your battery and see if the welcome lights come back. Also, was your car reprogrammed recently? Some car key memory settings can change during programming. Hope this helps.

    I forgot to note: If you do end up charging your battery, only use the charging terminals under the hood. Do not charge the battery directly! You will cause more problems than inop welcome lighting. ;)
