It's supposed to, it's a parking light, it saves power at night as you can select either left or right lights to stay on when parked.

I know it sounds strange, but "deskeech" is correct. Your owner manual explains it, and this feature is a requirement for cars in Europe.

I have a 2005 325ci bmw the hazzard light not working neither turn signal .


The simple, and most likely, cause of this problem is a blown fuse in the turn signal circuit. Normally, the turn signal lamps are activated by a single-pole double-throw switch circuit on your 325ci's steering column. That switch is also called turn signal switch and, as you know, you activate it by pressing up or down on the turnstalk (the lever usually on the left side of the steering wheel).

The hazard light circuit is a double-pole single-throw circuit that gangs the right and left turn signal circuits into one and then activates the front and rear signals as your 325ci's hazard lights.

Since they use the same circuits, the fuse is common to both and if it is blown then neither the turn signals nor the hazard lights will work.

Why is my turn signal not staying engaged when you click the handle down?


There's a plastic pert on the turn signal switch that has broken or worn down. Replacing it is impossible without special tools to remove the steering wheel. There is a procedure to follow to dis arm the air bag before you try to remove the steering wheel. A Chilton manual will give you instructions.

You may have a bulb burnt out if the relay didn't help.
Check all bulbs.

If that doesn't fix the problem, you may have a broken blinker cam inside the steering wheel. (where the blinker lever connects inside)

I would check in this order.

flasher relay

HIGH BEAMS COMES ON WHEN USING TURN SIGNAL AND LOW BEAMS ARE ON


Hello, is sounds like your issues are coming from within your turn signal/high-low beam switch. Most of the time the wires get worn or break and start rubbing around on each other causing troubles within the electrical circuit. Other times the contact switches inside the turn signal/high beam switch/lever wear and loose contact over time. You may be able to see wires leading from switch into steering colum. Check for bad wires, if none you may have to replace switch which you can get from any junkyard for bout 5 bucks plus learn how to take it apart in a junk car no one is worried about getting destroyed. BE CAREFULL WITH AIRBAGS when you pull your steering wheel to fix switch. It is not a difficult job to do.
