e92 headlight bulb failure(s)

Hi Guys,

Both my high and dipped beam lights on the passenger side headlight are not working. My guess is that some kind of relay module common to both bulbs has gone since both the angel eyes still work on this side.

Any ideas?

Cheers!

Have you tried the bulb connector to make sure the connection is good?

All the basic diagnostics have been carried out; swapped bulb from other side of car etc. etc. It's definitely something to do with the headlight electrics rather than a bulb or connector.

Have you resolved this issue? I'm heaving the same problem. Dealership connected that car to the computer and found lots of errors. They cleared the errors and the headlight started to work again. Now after 3 days it failed to turn on again. Im assuming there is a problem with the module/controller.

How have you resolved this issue?

There's only one bulb for dipped and high beam - it's Bi-Xenon and that's what the "bi" means. It's a single D1S HID tube. The Corona rings have an H8 halogen bulb.
