Bad dimmer switch. To be honest - it's a pain in the #$%. Air bag and wheel need to be removed. I'd had dealer or competent BMW shop do it.

Low beam head lights are not working. High beams only work when you put the switch on then push the high beam arm on the steering wheel

I have a 2001 ford explorer sport with no high or low beams. when i pull the signal/wiper arm towards me i get the "passing" high beam but other than that i am running on just fog lights. fuses...


yes, ideas,your headlight switch on the steering column may be going bad. try tilting your steering column up and down while pulling headlight switch on, do your headlights turn on and off by them selfs? careful!! this is a hot or positive wire grounding to metal,which could lead to a fire in the steering column!! do you ever see,or smell smoke coming from the steering wheel? if you do,disconnect the positive cable from your battery immeadiatlly!! the only way to replace the switch is the removal of your steering wheel,if you are'nt mechanically inclined,i recommend you get a 2nd opinion and go forward with your problem as it can lead to a fire in your steering wheel or fuse panel! if all your fuses are good,and only have fog lights,but no low or high beams,but pull back on the turn signal switch,you have a problem with the headlight switch.located on the 'turn signal,high beam,low beam switch' on the steering column. the only way to repair,is replace it. sorry!! can recommend autozone auto parts,advance auto parts or try used parts place.but if you are keeping the car,recommend"new" part replacement. thank you for choosing fixya.com!!if we can be of further assistance,please repost your questions to fixya.com!

I have a 2003 BMW Z4 and the headlight switch sometimes will not turn on. It's a rotating switch that works fine at times but, at others, will not rotate to the on position, almost like it's frozen or...


try removing the headlight switch if u can to see the problem before taking it to BMW/ if u can take it out u could certainly put it back and replace it with a new one if its damaged or completely stuck up and beyond repair/ BMW will surely hit u a lot by just changing the switch

2002 BMW 330XI, high beams do not come on fully when switched to on. Momentary on then off. But they do come on when you flash to pass. low beams and fog lights work good. Any help would be cool! Thanks


check fuse and relay, if its good, than you have faulty switch, only work on low but not high beam, to turn high beam on the switch move forward which is fauty or no contact, flashing high beam move toward you which has a good contact and working. it two switch in one unit.

How to adjust halogen headlights on bmw z4


The adjustment screws/nuts should be located either on the top of the headlamp assembly, behind the headlamp assembly, or near the frame rail by the radiator support.

You will have vertical adjustment screws for each independent beam (separate highs and separate lows, but will be same screw if highs and lows are the same bulb). You may also have additional horizontal adjustment screws as well

Park your car on a level ground 30 feet from a wall and measure the height from the ground to the bulb and mark on a wall (do this for highs beams and low beams if the bulbs are separate, if highs and lows are the same bulb, only do it for the lows)

If the headlights read VOR, then aim the brightest part or cutoff part just below the mark on the wall. If it says VOL or nothing, aim them 2 inches below the mark on the wall.

1994 Mercedes c280 high beams not working...


At first 1994 C280 high beams began to not connect regularly when stick pushed forward, then not at all. Drove high beams by pulling and holding stick back towards steering wheel until that stopped working, too. Shop said the turn signal switch was at fault-- had seen it many times before with W202; about $160 to replace. Haven't done it yet, but should be an easy fix?
