    We all know these cars can be quite unclear about what they want... Mine has been beeping twice recently - always twice, and seemingly at random times. Not while driving tho, with accessories or ignition on, sometimes when turning it off. It's not the seatbelt chime and it's not the low...

The problem is, when I go to turn the lights on they do any of the three: 1.)Turn on steady for anywhere from 5-15 seconds then flicker and turn off 2.)Flicker then turn...

    So why cant you use all these cheaper headlights from anonymous websites( we all know them) if you had the factory HID/ XENON headlights? I thought it was just a differrent bulb with the ballast am i a wrong? Were the headlights shaped differently or something like that. I have a 03 330i 4 dr...

When i try to use my left signal the rear drivers side light indicator turns on, and when i use my right the passenger headlight indicator turns on. When I wash my car or it rains, the problem goes away for...

    Alright so my brake light switch went bad on the car and I have replaced it. The problem now is when I turn the car on the brake lights aren’t on, but once the pedal is pushed the brake lights stay on... I looked at the fuses, pretty sure they are #9 and #32 and they looked fine. Cruise control...

    I want to install an underbody light kit, angel eyes, a DVD/CD player with a 7inch screen, some lights in the footwell and it seems like adding a sound system is not going to be good for it. Is there some type of capacitor you can hook your lighting and extra electronics through so it does not...

    I have been trying to find info on some sort of lighting upgrade solution for my e46. I have been doing some research and haven't really found anything on some of the questions I'm trying to answer. For example, The LCM seems to be very capable but is mostly locked up along with all of its...

    So I've gone and bought a 16 year old German luxury sports coupé (mileage unknown) for 5% of her original price. No way she wasn't going to need some TLC... We failed inspection on the following points: battery not securely fastened excessive play left front ball joint worn tire left rear...

    Okay so I recently purchased the WeissLicht LED License Plate Illumination Upgrade Kit from bimmian.com and I thought all would run well with installation and fitment judging from the install video.... Well you can guess what happened with that! :excited::excited: So my main problem here is...

    I recently purchased some interior (under dash) lights and was going to try to use my fog light switch for them. Firstly and most importantly, would this be a bad idea? Would the wiring interfere with the fog lights in any way? Secondly, I know how to take the light switch module out, which...

    I was replacing my headlight bulbs the other day and I noticed that they were mounted improperly. This caused a hole to be burned in the projector bowl. These are OEM headlights. This problem, along with the severe water staining of my headlight lenses, has made driving at night quite the...

    So recently spent a bit over 100 on some corner lights along with some other bulbs and clear side markers but when my order came i soon realized there were many mistakes not to include the 3 day late delivery. (Probably FedEx's Fault) Ordered 4 H7 bulbs which where no where to be seen...

    Ok so I have a 2004 BMW 325i with the auto adjusting bixenon headlights. The headlights are wired way differently then any diagram or schematic I have found this far. The DRL's are not using the halogen bulbs, but rather the bixenon's. In fact the ONLY time the halogen inner bulbs work is when...

    I have a 2004 BMW 325i. Just bought it off of the world's most shady lot. I have had to tear into this thing like a mad scientist, putting it thing back together somewhat OEM. I noticed the other night though that the center bulbs in both the passenger and driver's side headlights (brights I...
