Yes, both

What's weird is that it happened of course when I was driving home. I noticed in another cars reflection that they weren't on.

Before this happened, the fogs initially weren't working, (they stayed on for like 30 seconds then turned off), so we swapped the supplied "decoder" for a different capacitor and that fixed the issue. But now the angle eyes are out. What gives?!?!

I'm also worried if I go to the dealer that they will void my warranty if I ask them to fix it.

Why would I have an error for both angel eyes then? There is something more complicated going on then just simply having the option turned off. Thanks though.

What about if I checked the fuses for the angel eyes....maybe the fuses blew because of the distribution of the current......I believe there are replacement fuses in the glove compartment.
