    Hi guys, new on here, bought a BMW 3 series a week or so ago.

    Having a problem with the front interior light. The rear one comes when opening the door and fades after locking. The front one comes on occassionally but not always.

    There is only one button on the light to press and I can't figure out how to set the lights so that both come on and go off as you would expect.

    Finding this very annoying indeed. Que me trying it out everytime I'm at lights... alot of door slamming etc!!

    Any advice for a new and highly frustrated BMW owner?

    Cheers,

    Mitchell

    Hi really basic reply here but might be worth checking,

    take the bulb out and have a look , and also the holder it does into.
    I took my front holder/bulb out as I didnt like the light coming on at the front every time i opened door or got in car.

    Could it be bad bulb, loose holder connection, fuse?
