Do the steering wheel lights ever turn on?

I thought these were DAPP active lights? I don’t ever recall them turning on.

Mine come on while using Assisted driving. They blink yellow if I am not holding the steering wheel correctly. And green when using adaptive+.

Thanks, Thats what I thought. I'll check again, but mine don't seem to do that.

I think there is a setting, dont ask me where, to turn on the lights in the steering wheel. Let me go look in a minute and I'll see if I can find it.

These lights also turn on when you’re using the Maneuver/Parking Assistant system. I use this each day to pull in and out of my tight parking spot. So magical to see the car steer itself!

Now that you mentioned it, I don't think mine have ever come on either.

The option to turn the lights on is here (I already had them enabled):

Thanks! Ok the yellow does flash when I take my hands off the wheel. Haven’t seen the green yet.

This is weird I don’t have this menu to toggle the light elements. I have DAPP too.

I've only seen the green in the Traffic Jam Assistant when it takes full control of the car. I don't recall seeing the green any other time.

Did you try to get to it by going to Driving Settings -> Driver Assistance?

As @Elle BMW said, I've only seen it come on in full hands free driving mode with TJA.

Video in the other very long thread about TJA:

The green only appears (in my experience) when you go into hands-free drive assist on highways at sub-40mph traffic.

Green definitely comes on for me when self-parking.

@Chuck

They definitely work in Assist Plus Mode (TJA). I guess I just didn't notice them last time I used it.

If you have the reverse assistant, it turns the steering wheel lights green while reversing

The steering wheel lights also turn red if the car gets mad at me.
