Default Side lights after TOAF drl setting

Hi all

I had set my lighting to DRL when using TOAF a while ago. I realised it was no good for our MOT and read somewhere on here there were issues with the LSM after this setting. Lo and behold I remembered to reset the LSM back today and now the side lights dont work. Have I fubarred my LSM now or was there an easier fix?

I cant find the post where it was being talked about and I have not conducted any fault diagnosis yet on the car. I just noticed it when I was moving the cars around.

Cheers for any help

Jon

IIRC you need to zero your LSM and re install it properly with T4

Nope, you need to read the contents of another LSM complete with something like BMW Scan 1.4, then write those contents to the TOAFED LSM, and edit the VIN and mileage to that of the original LSM.

You can't rectify it with T4, even if you virginise the LSM and recode it.

The more I hear about TOAF the more I think leave it to the experts

Yea you did mate. I had already done the deed by the time you had posted and thought to myself sh2t I must go and reset the LSM before I do any damage. As it was on my project car I totally forgot whilst I was doing other things on the car then today moving the cars around I noticed it and thought big hairy hanging things I forgot to reset the LSM. Damage done!!!! Hopefully Erics file from TOAF will put me back on the straight and narrow or I will have to follow Brians advice

To damage with fiddle factor. (I TOAFED my LSM)
To bodge or fumble. (I used TOAF and TOAFED the IPK in)
To look wide eyed in panic, an expression of horror. (I am TOAFED)
An effective laxative. (I TOAFED myself when the car would not start)
A call for help or assistance. (Ok, its not my fault, I only TOAFED it to dim the lights)


Please take this post in the light hearted hand in which it was written...
I have and will continue to use TOAF for some functions, whether you do too is totally up to you and I neither encourage or discourage its use....
