    Headlight Indicator Problems???

    Just picked up a black beauty over the weekend (2009 135i) and inherited a driverís side front blinker/indicator problem.

    I switched out the bulb for a new one (fail #1) then I traded the left bulb and sleeve (?) for the right one.
    The driverís side works on the passenger side and the previously working passenger side bulb and sleeve did NOT work on the driverís side (fail #2).

    So Iíve narrowed it down to the driverís side headlight housing... maybe?

    Iím hoping I donít have to replace the entire headlight housing - though Iíve heard you can get a headlight casing and transfer the working parts over...?

    Anyone have any idea whatís broken/out of alignment?

    Thank you for your help!

    Your on the right track look inside the housing of the headlight and see if there are burnt contact marks where the socket makes its contacts if is burnt is part of the headlight

    I have a situation where I'm doing wiring for the dashboard of a vehicle. For whatever reason, the turn signal/headlight switch on this vehicle outputs a 6 volt signal on the high beam wire when the low beam is on and a 12 volt signal when the high beam is on. The headlights work as they're supposed to, but the high beam indicator led is activated when the low beam is on since 6 volts is enough to activate it. Does anyone have a simple solution to make the indicator only turn on ShowBox Kodi Lucky Patcher when there is a 12 volt signal and not when it's a 6 volt signal?
