When you say burn out does it auctually melt or just blow the fuse,,, if its just blowing the fuse you have a intermittant short in the parking light circuit ,,,,check wiring to the bulbs for wear on the insulation or bare wires ,,,,especially check where wiring goes through brackets or through panels,,,,also look carefully at bulb sockets and connections,,, hope this helps

Headlights work on bright but not on dim

The dim ones are the parklights..........just a few questions first before diagnosing......when you put the switch to have no lights on ???? is the back lights on, number plate lights ??????..if not, could be the fuse blown for that cicuit......or get this....2 x blown globes...i have had this before......both globes dont work, and i diagnose for 2 hours, and find that I have both globes blown....because 1 globe does 2 circuits, the bright ones could work, but the parklights fail.......

I have no tail or dash lights?

Check for a blown fuse on the parklight circuit, or a faulty relay on the parklight circuit (if fitted).

How to install fog lights so they come on with the parking lights?

Instal a relay, wire one side of the control coil to the +12v parklight parklight 'on' circuit.
Take the other relay coil control connection to the 'foglight on' control switch (switched to ground).
Supply relay contacts 'common' with a fused +12V from battery.

2 fuses blew in the parking light circuit .

If you haven't identified the cause of the temporary short circuit or overload there is a very good chance it will recur.
Check for chafed or cut insulation on parklight wiring, particuarly around the lampsocket area.
Check for water /corrosion within parklight lamp sockets.
Check for possible problems on any wiring to towbar connection (if fitted).
Check parklight circuit connection to any aftermarket alarm system fitted

Fuse block #33 immediatly blows the fuse. controls left tail light and about 4 other circuits. Problem started after my alarm started going off for no reason. 1998 323is coupe

According to the BMW manual circuit diagram F33 feeds power through the parklight 'on' switch to left front parklight and left tail lights (all grey/violet wire).

Suggest you remove all left side parklight bulbs, then check fuse does not blow.
If it blows without bulbs installed, check wiring/lamp sockets for short to earth.

Instal one bulb at a time, checking fuse status each time.

Perhaps spurious alarm problem is related to faulty alarm wiring- especially if the alarm is an aftermarket installation. Check quality of any spliced joints to the parklight circuit for possible shorts or water ingress.
