Description

ModLight2 is our module for E39/E38/E53/Range Rover L322. ModLight2 adds several new functions to your vehicle. It uses digital, two-way IBUS communication with your BMW, i.e. reads IBUS telegrams (for example, the ones that are transmitted from your GM module when you press remote key buttons or when you turn your key to ignition position) sends digital commands to turn on lights (welcome/goodbye lights) or to add additional blinks to turn signals (comfort turn signals function). We are giving our best to develop our modules with functions as close as possible to the OEM functions from newer BMW models. ModLight2 is fully compatible with BMW:

5 series-E39 (all features)
7 series-E38 with LCM (all features), non-compatible with E38 equipped with the LM, instead of LCM module;
X5 (E53) (all features)
Range Rover L322 (all features).

All LCM and GM modules versions are compatible. Installation in the car is really simple, you must only connect three wires to your car’s wire harness: constant (permanent) 12V source, GND (ground) and IBUS wire. All these wires can be found in many locations in your car.

Once you connect these three wires to your car, modLight2 module is ready to use. It has simple two buttons user interface which you can use for enable/disable or configure its functions.
ModLight2 adds the following functions to your BMW E39/E38/E53 car:

  1. When you unlock your car by clicking Unlock button on the remote key it starts function “Welcome Lights” which will make one of the following:
    a) starts parking lights for 10/15/20/25 seconds and at the end it ads the turn signals too for 1 second. You can add the foglamps to this cycle too.
    or
    b) starts the high beams + fog lamps + reverse lights for 10/15/20/25 seconds and then turns off.
    or
    c) starts the modLight cycle patterns number 1 (you can see it on the video or on the website in the video description).
    or
    d) starts the modLight cycle patterns number 2 (you can see it on the video or on the website in the video description).
  2. When you lock your car from the button on the remote key it will start the “Goodbye lights” function which will do one of the following:

    and/or
    Triple blinker (comfort turn signals) – when this function is enabled and when you click the left blinker (turn signal) to blink once, your modLight2 will add 2/3/4 additional blinks.
    *Please note that the Triple blinker feature is “experimental”, so please don’t expect it to work absolutely perfectly, it fails from time to time, but that happens really rare.

  6. Welcome message – when you engage the key to position IGN (ACC2) modLight2 module will send a message who will be displayed on the HIGH IKE dashboard. You can see the available messages here: Welcome messages available in modLight2
    You can enable or disable this function from the user interface of the modLight2 module.
  7. Auto lock when your car reaches 16km/h and auto-unlock when you turn off the engine.
    This function  can be coded to your original GM module with BMW scanner, NCS Expert or any other coding software, but there is older E39 cars which doesn’t have this function available and thats why we added this function to our modLight2 module. Please use this function only if it is not possible your car to be recoded for OEM automatic locking function (E39 before produced 1997).

    Very good! Thank you!

  2. BMWFAN1985 (verified owner)

    Interesting gadget. Do you ship to Estonia?

  3. Stafan Kiryakoff (verified owner)

    I can’t live without it! I’m in love with modLight2, thank you very much!

  4. Pete C (verified owner)

    This is a great little product. In my 39 I connected it at the CD changer plug which already had a Dice fitted, so I used the supplied harness and spliced/soldered it in place and suck it to the hole left by the changer. The programming method is basic, but easy to understand and takes only a few minutes to zip through and set your desired options. So far I’ve had no reliability problems with the product or the car. Highly recommended.

    Using that already more than 1 year, and still cant get enough
    Seriously good device, works great and all functions are perfect.
    Many thanks!

    Amazing! Easy installation! I own a BMW E39 2003 and modlight2 works fine. Just plug&play!! I installed it on the trunk, behind the cover of left tail light there is a big white connector with the cables, easy to identify. One advice: in program mode you should be fast pressing the up button and enter button to select funtions and options menus. Otherwise it gets out of program mode and you will notice it because you won´t see the confirmation green and red lights. it took me a few tries to catch the trick . The instruction manual is very clear but I think it should be more detailed. There are funtions not clearly explained.

    Please I wanna know where do u sell that product

  8. Julian (verified owner)

    I’d still buy it even if it only had the welcome/goodbye lights. That function is so simple yet it’s one of those things I didn’t know I “needed” until I hooked it up and pressed the key for the first time. Almost all of the time the comfort blinkers work as intended, though I should mention that sometimes there will be a 1 second delay in about 1 out of every 40 taps of the turn signal. That is the only flaw I’ve discovered so far, but it happens so infrequently it doesn’t really bother me at all. All in all with the lock/unlock lights and the additional features that this little box has, the E39/E38 (with models being 20 years old now) blends right in with new cars of today.

    hello to all BMW lovers. I want to share my feedback about ModBMV. First of all, I want to thank the person who created this handy device such as Modlight, Thermostat Mod and other BMW car products. I have bought these devices and am very satisfied. Feature-rich, essential features that we use every day and we love that comfort and they work flawlessly. It is not the first year that I have ordered Modlight for friends, everyone is very happy. Today came the Thermostat Mod, I have already installed and feel the difference in engine operation and in driving dynamics, I reduced the temperature and was satisfied. Many thanks to ModBMV. I wish you all the best in your new endeavors.

    Best E39 Mode Ever! Works as described at all with zero faults! I now have a 20 year old 5 series (2001) with modern features.. Remote Folding Mirrors, Follow me home lights, comfort blinkers etc etc.

    Great bit of kit and easy to install! Literally took 10min to install as i’m a neat freak and tidied the cables so it could take less time to wire up. Programming looked scary to start with but it was simple using the 2 buttons.
