In disassembling the Tupperware, I noticed a light in each Plastic wing.

What are they for? I have no burnt out fuses. They have no power going to them normally. They don't light with the turn signals. The filaments look okay. They look like real BMW parts. It's a mystery.

They are courtesy lights, they should illuminate along with the map light whenever the ignition is switched off. Designed to assist with safe disembarcation from the "ship" in the dark, they go off after about 45 seconds. I suspect someone has not reconnected the plugs after maintenance. Have a fish around in there the wires should be there, they work well and really annoy your HD mates when they see them in operation.

You will never know they come on until you shut her down in the dark. I get startled by it some times as I am not expecting it.
