Default F25 LED Bulb Error Fix.

Problem, I have not been able to find much about replacing the OEM incandescent turn and brake bulbs with LEDís. Like many I was disappointed that my new X3 did not come with LEDís for the turn signals and brake lights (My two year older F10 does have them) so I started pulling together as much info from all the forums I could find and then started filling in the holes. I have read good and bad about Error Free LED Bulbs and did not wish to cut any wires to add load resistors, so I looked into coding as an alternative (I just started coding on both my FXX vehicles with great success).

Result, I am 99% sure I have figured out the codes which check for front & rear turn signals, brake lights, fog lights and reverse light errors on my F25. I tried it this afternoon by removing a bulb then coding that particular bulb to ďnot activeĒ and it worked, the BC warning and fast flash rate both went away immediately. Now I am going to order regular LED bulbs and see if there are any problems. If this works I will post the codes for others to use.

Did you have any luck with this? I have a similar project going on with my E83 X3. I'm getting the bulb out warning signal on the dash.
