You can use modified FA to push FDL changes without modifying VO in VCM.

...and tester of Dealer refuse work when FA not same as in BMW system saved to Cars VIN. The same work if coding FDL or by FA not written in VCM.

I am here in the united states. Purchased the lights from the UK. when we connect them into our cars that already have led lights, we have an Issue. we have is unlike the UK that has a seperate turn signal and brake light leds. Our turn signals and brake lights are the same on these lights.
Theres not much coding going on here in the united states. I need to hire someone to code these lights to fix them. to get them working. Theres a few of us having this issue so far. the horizontal line is the turn signal and the verticle line is the brake in the UK.

As I understood repinning is just needed if you do not have LED lights.
Could you please send me the instruction? 

Thx a lot

RE: F56 LCI tail lights (union jack), FA/SA?
I don´t think so, the insctructions are only for LED headlights, if you have no LED headlights, you have to repin more

Non-LED:
   
With LED:
   

I only have the instructions in german, if that´s okay

So is it HELC, just like any other LCI Taillight retrofit?

Ok, maybe I needed to mention that I am talking about European cars. Maybe it is different for US cars.
I got the confirmation from different people that no repinning is needed for cars with LED, just coding.

Yeah, German is fine smile
Thank you

I know, I have done it several times without repinning (except non-LED minis), but that´s what the EBA said smile
