door handle exterior LED not working?

Hey guys,

Z4 n00b here.

I picked up a 2012 Z4 35i last night and it has LEDs in the door handles (as well as an "ambiance lighting" line item on the window sticker) however these LEDs do not come on when I unlock the car, nor does any lighting in the footwells.

The headlight switch is in the auto position per the owner's manual and I'm wondering if there is another setting I need to change or if there is an issue with the car that needs to be resolved.

Thanks everyone!

Check pages 68 and 72 of your electronic manual. If the headlight switch is off then the courtesy lamps will remain off upon unlock. Also, holding the interior light switch by the rear-view mirror for at least three seconds will do the same thing.
I don't pick up my z until next week ... Since I can't drive it I have been reading the manual!
Hope this helps.

Wow thank you!! That did it. I pressed that light switch and it all turned on.

I feel a bit silly but am glad I asked. Thanks again. A good thing just got better!

Congrats on your car by the way
