Hi, everyone I need help about my signal indicator on, on the cluster.
I have 1999 323i that come without Xenon Headlight and I do change them with the Xenon Headlight and everything was fine after the installation, but I do have a problem with the cluster on the car, When I start the engine, the cluster shows me that those litte light icons is on, it seem like the bulb need to be replace and when I turn on the headlight those litte light icons will be off (normal), would anyone help me through your experience?


Thanks

ya just go to the dealer and see if they will have them set so they dont turn on. This brought something up to my attention. I swapped out my halogens for oem xenons and my dash light never came on.

Thanks

Thanks for all of the commands, but wait a minute....
I have seen one of the E46 Members posted that he has the same problem when he swap his halogen headlight to OEM Xenon but he said his problem was solved by pull up the fuse, but I don't know which fuse should I pull it up if anyone have any idea.

Thanks

don't pull the fuse, it basically disables the onboard computer that tells you when things are wrong with the car. just get it flashed, or get those things bekkers sells

e46stock,

how much did you pay for your xenons?

PS. Pull fuse #32 or get it flashed at your local dealership.

I have brought this OEM Xenon headlight from back home, and it cost me about $1000 Canadian Dollar but it is used from someone who bought this Xenon for a Car Show and basically is a brand new unit just used about a month from the original owner but he juat need quick cash at that time.

Dealer Result

I spoke to one dealer here in Canada and they said basically if the car doesn't come with Xenon, it will be no way to reprogram because when they check with their computer, it will tell them that the car has no xenon, would that be make sense to you guys?

sorry to hijack but, on the pre face lift sedans, if you put oem xenons to replace the regular halogens, would the light in the dash just occur or will there flicker as welll?? And the same question with the face lifted ones, will it flicker or will the light just come on?

Thanks,

Will-

just have them reprogram the setting into your car. that was what i did. they can do it if ppl on this board have had the dealers done it any dealership can. their just trying to BS you so that they can rip you off.
