hello,

I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked.

this is likely a faulty lamp module (aka light switch center) or possibly a faulty ignition switch. I would start here. A fault scan on a factory BMW scan tool (not a basic dtc reader) will likely reveal the issue with certainty.

Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.
