Question about BMW 325

1 Answer

Right hand side lights not working.

I have a bmw 1992 325i which has an occuring problem. When I turn the lights on, the right hand side indicator, right hand side brake light and right hand side small reg plate light do not light up. But when I indicate or brake then they work. Seems like it has some kind of double circutry that is malfunctioning, strange thing is sometimes it works fine, sometimes it doesn't.

Any ideas guys? I'm going crazy with this one, I'm getting pulled over by the cops daily.!

    Thanks for the reply buddy.! You think a bad connection/corrosion in the slots or lamp holders would cause all the right hand lights to fail? I thought they all had seperate circuits/fuses/relays?

    Could it be a bad relay or fuse?

    Thanks again. - Chris

    They are all controlled by the respective relay and fusible links of that circuit...

Rear indicate right hand side

Your BMW has an independence / resistance checking system. It will not like LED bulb.

Switch every bulb(s) back to conventional bulb and everything will back to normal.

It sure sounds like there is a break in the circuit to the right hand bulb. See if you can follow the actual wire back to where it goes into the loom. Possibly a push fit plug loose or out.

BMW 325i right turn indicator

Turn indicators blink a lot faster when a bulb is blown or a wire is diconnected. Check front and rear signal lights to make sure they work after you turn on right turn indicator.
