    Hello, i have recently installed my angel eyes dtm style to my e46 2003 saloon and i am facing a problem. Every bulb seems to work fine but when i turn the car on for 20-25 seconds the dash front light warning comes up for both sides and when i have the lights to low beams the side lights are...

    I have had my 2004 E46 325xi for a year and a few days as of today. The one I purchased was equipped with the AL HID Xenon Headlights and unfortunately for me has caused me nothing but problems. The current problem however may turn out to be the most expensive. About 2 weeks ago my driver side...

    Ok, I've read many post on this topic but have yet to find a valid conclusion to the matter. A month ago my driver side headlight randomly shut down on me, my first suspicion was that the bulb blew. The car being 13 years old, that only made sense to me. So i went and spent an arm and a leg on...

    I just purchased a 2004 325iT and the driver's-side headlight is out - the xenon doesn't work, the daytime running light does. The previous owner told me that his mechanic told him that the bulb and the wiring are fine - it's the ballast that needs replacing. I've done some reading and it...

    So after some research on why my passenger side xenon bulb would intermittently go out (similar to this thread). Research led me to believe it might be the igniter but I first wanted to swap the bulbs around to rule them out. My big hands were making the process difficult and in the process...

    Hi, my 2008 328i coupe has all front right headlights out except for hi beam. Is this likely ballast/ignitor? Angel eyes, low beam and adaptive light for turning (not blinker) are all out. I have only replaced lamps before and that was on an 06 325i. First lighting issues on this car thus far...

    some recent updates are that I'm having trouble with my driver side ballast, and sometimes when I turn my car on the HID doesn't come on. Sometimes I have to start the car 2-3 times before it pops on. Replaced alternator, battery, bulbs, and ballast. (also replaced ballast looked fried so I...

    Alright, so I have exhausted multiple separate efforts in order to try to fix my intermittent/dead headlight problem on my 2003 325i. The passenger side headlight used to only intermittently go off and on and somewhat recently it just didn't come on again at all. I tried replacing the ballast...

    I'm retrofitting my stock ZKW Halogen headlights with aftermarket projectors. I just ordered a pair of OEM Ballasts. The ballasts have three plugs. I know what 2 of the plugs are for but I'm not sure about the third one. I've attached a couple of pictures. The only thing I can think of is...

    2005 330XI WITH XENON FACTORY LIGHTS. I have been told they are Xenon, Bi-xenon, self leveling, auto this, and auto that. Surprisingly, while I have searched seemingly the world for definitive answers, including my original car sticker, I see nothing to indicate whether the lights are xenon or...

    Hello, I recently had an issue with my passenger side Xenon. I narrowed the problem down to the Ballast. Purchased one off ebay and replaced it. Fired up fine. The second day, the driver side Xenon (opposite side) turned off, so i turned it off and on again, it fired up again, no problem...

    I am in the process of completing my halogen bi-xenon retrofit with Morimoto H1 3five kit from TRS. I would like to know how to mount the ballasts to the headlight before I take out my old headlights. I know that the OEM ballasts have a mount on the headlight itself, but they point up and...

    Khoalty replacement Resistor / Ballast for Eagle Eye LED Tail Lights Recently I was lucky enough to get sent a test set of these replacement resistors for my Eagle Eye LED tail lights. I’ve had EE tails for two years and the passenger side resistor that came with my tail lights had begun...

    My recently purchased 05 330ci has stock HID xenon with autolevel and the lights turn when I turn (whatever that is called). Driver side low and high went out with error light on the dash and fog lights came on automatically. Took to dealer and they swapped xenon lamp control modules (ballast?)...

    I recently swapped the driver's side igniter/ballast on my 01 330xi with an igniter from a 5 series, and Ive noticed that the light output is totally different from the OEM igniter/ballast....are they different voltages or is my lens foggy all of a sudden from the switch?....any info would be...

    I have a 2001 330Ci with factory Xenon's, and recently they have been flickering together every so often. Last night I turned on my lights and they constantly flash on and off at 1 second intervals, both at the same time. I was able to make it home on just my fogs, but I clearly cannot drive it...

    Real quick problem with a quick diagnosis hopefully... My front right Xenon HID bulb is not working (on the dash I get the little car logo with a red low beam logo on the front-right side of the indicator). I've swapped the bulbs, ignitors and now ballasts and the problem still persists on the...

    I have DEPO P46's with CCFL angel eyes I bought from Khoalty about 4 years ago. While everything works perfectly, my inverters have gone bad from time to time. 2 years after installation, one of them went out. I emailed Khoa and had two replacement inverters sent to me. Another year later, the...
