The module you need to chance is called the LKM. Unless you trust your skills with vehicle electronics I would have this done either by a dealer or qualified mechanic.

It's a bulb replacement. If it's anything similar to my Audi, there is a cover on the back of the headlight housing that you pop off. Then you can reach in, pull the wire connector off the bulb, and unclip a metal retainer over the bulb, and pull the bulb out. Installation of the new one is the reverse. Just be SURE not to touch the glass part of the bulb. Skin oils can cause a halogen bulb to burn very hot and burn out very quickly. If you do touch the glass, wipe it gently but thoroughly on a cotton cloth to clean it off before you install it.

Are you able to go to salvage yard and plug in without removing the original,another head light switch assembly to check wether it will make a difference, as it sounds like the switch/wand is the problem

Look under the hood near the firewall on the driver side for the main set.
Look for a black plastic box. I think it has relays also.
You can check the fuses with a multimeter or ohmmeter. Sometime German will look good and be bad.

Honda CR-V 2005 low beam out while the bulb and fuse are still OK


both LOW BEAMS (you make this so hard not saying that...)
but challenging.....

is car in canada, or usa? or a?
does car have DRL. we dont know ,until you say.
and both types work different, non- and DRL.
my answer (roll dice, ) USA. no DRL

the system is simple (alldata.com)
2 fues, left and right
2 relays, one left, one right.
1 controller box.
1 switch combo.

the sequence of events
HL switch on,
this ground the Low pin on the mutiplex control box in fuse box.
this box sends 2 ground signals to both relays.
so if one headlight works you know the mpx box works
both relays close
and 12v is sent to both low beams , and there other side is grounded full time so they glow.
there are 2 fuse left and right. fuse #15 and 17

After jump starting 2006 Z4 BMW headlight low beams don't work checked fuses in glove compartment and under hood all seemed to be ok is there a relay, what do i do now


If the lights are switched then the switch controls a rely all lights are switched on bmw. Can use fog lights temporarily. Find rely test with continuity meter when on, disconnect lights first, then turn on lights switch, check for 12v at light bulb terms, if 12v then bulbs bad, if not relay is bad, test with continuity meter, rely should read 0 ohms when lights switched on, infinite open circuit when switched off. If lights work in manual switch pos then solar sensor bad.

Low beams dont turn on........... bulbs check ok...................fuses under hood ok.............need help


{: ) I wonder how you checked the fuses and the bulbs. Did you check also the HDM fuse 15amp and the HDM relay both at the underhood fuseblock? Turn on the low beam and check for 12v at the LO beam fuses. If there is voltage at the fuses but the low beam ok bulbs won't light, then there's a wiring issue from your fuseblock going to the bulbs.
But if no voltages on the LO fuses when the low beam is switched on, then the problem could be on the HDM fuse or relay, the headlamp switch, the BCM, or even the fuseblock.

I don't know where exactly in you car they are but they are on the drivers side. Check in the kick panel on the bottom or on the dash, there should be some cover you can remove. It should say fuses or something. On the cover it'll let you know which fuse is which. If the fuses are good is most likely blown headlights. But its unusual for all to go out at the same time. Sounds like you may have a short-circuit. And yes you can just change them out.

1996 328i lights not working


Do you have to pull something to turn on your headlight?
If yes, then don't pull it all the way back. You can pull that thing three time.
first pull will make you speedometer and all other things glow
second pull will turn on the HEADLIGHT
and the last (i.e. the third pull) will make your High Beam turn on
Hope this help, I have a 1996 BMW too.
