eyebrows not working

Hi,
Eyebrows on my 520i e60 do not work at all. There are no error messages on the iDrive and all the fuses are ok.
What could be the problem?

Thanks,
Slavisa

Well I checked all the fuses in the trunk and in the glow box - they're all fine.
I read somewhere that someone also had the same problem and solved it by performing software update.

You are correct there's a glitch in the software, chap on here says it takes 10 minutes at a dealer:

It was a software problem. I went to the dealer. It took them about an hour to install new software.
Everything works now.

Software problems...whatever happened to a good old fashioned relay. On a serious note, I've heard about the problem before and I'm glad you got it sorted out.
