daytime running light problem

Idrive said right one went out thought it was my h8 but it wasn't I swapped out the bulbs and it still doesnt work, im guessing its wiring?

Anyone see the issue before? I know bmw won't work on it with my h8 installed and i no longer have the oem's anyone know the part #?

Is it still under warranty? If it is, bring it to the dealership and let them replace the bulb.

If not, you're just going to have to get someone help you verify that all lights are good. I've had a bulb error and the bulb was still working, it was just on it's last leg and eventually gave out a few weeks later.

At worse, there might be an issue with your LCM. Did you do any lighting mods?

Is the drl on your car the angel eyes or the halogen high beams? I can't remember. Try flashing your high beams and seeing if one side is out.

Yeah its still under warranty, they will replace it even if its missing? It's def not the bulb I swapped lux h8's to test it. I never tried any lighting mods other than lux angel eyes.

The ground on top of the angel eye is secure? Sometimes the AE will illuminate but if the ground is weak it will throw a code.

Sir,

I have exactly the same problem with the white LED bulb on left hand side day time running light.

I check the voltage , it is out of voltage.

I am think if it is a wiring problem or some controller issue ?

any idea ?

I'm in the same boat here. Both just stopped working, error and everything, after I swapped for another two H8 bulbs, twice. Nothing special, just different temp bulbs.

I just recently had this problem fixed at the dealership. I had replaced my AE's with a set of LUX H8s and after a few weeks I lost power on the the passenger side AE. I swapped the LEDs and saw that they both were working on the driver's side. I took my car in and told them I had aftermarket AE's but the driver's side didnt work and I knew my LEDs were good. The technician told me there was a loose connection and they re-soldered and wrap a loose wire. I can only assume that it was I that caused the disconnect during installation of the LUX H8s. Now had I replaced the stock bulbs, I assume the fix would have been free, but it was a pain in the ass to get those LUX H8's in and I was willing to pay for them to fix it.
