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.
Most likely the issue is an internal fault inside the bc1 (the control module for body and lighting functions).
The only way to verify is via a proper diagnostic on a bmw/mini diagnostic computer. When this module is replaced, it requires programming, something that can only be done with a bmw/mini diagnostic computer.
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.
