How to Program and Code a Newly Installed Tail Light on a BMW with ISTA
Installing a new tail light on your BMW can be quite tricky sometimes due to some compatibility issues with your new parts and your vehicle model. Oftentimes, the process requires programming or coding to make sure that the system in your vehicle is in-sync with your newly installed tail light. This can be done with the use of programming and coding software such as ISTA.
A video created by ADAS AIMING By Jack Short shows the exact process of how to program and code a new tail light using the ISTA software on a brand new 2021 BMW 740. Check it out on the video below:
Among the common compatibility issues in installing a new tail light is the difference in the region where the product was designed for. Compatibility between car parts may vary between regions that your BMW vehicle was built for. If your new tail light was designed for the European market, you will need to program or code it for a Euro-style setting in your BMW vehicle. There are a number of functionalities and hardware differences between an American-style and European style tail light. So you need to be aware of what these differences are on your specific BMW model before deciding on installing a new one.
