Hi All,

So my headlights stopped working, both driving lights and bright lights. parking lights still work.

What I've done:
- I tested for power on the fuses for these lights and there is power
- I tested for power on the wires for these lights, and this is puzzling for me.
---- Last month when I tested there was very little power on these wires.. the light on the tester was barely lit. but when I tested on the fuses I could see that there is enough power.
---- Last weekend trying to fix this, I tested for power on the wires and no more power at all. but there is still power on the fuses.

What could be the point of failure?
Any suggestion on what to change?

Thanks,
Themba

Are you troubleshooting using a wiring diagram? Google "wedophones bmw"

A common point of failure is the headlight switch and the relays.
