Hi there, never used a forum - nor know much about cars - so please bear with us.
I've had my BMW for about 18months and it's been great with not much trouble at all. About 4 weeks ago the battery died - alarm kept going off when jumped started and stayed on!! The alarm was the original system and i decided to have the alarm removed. Eventually had it removed from an auto electrician and thought my troubles were over.
Now this might not be connected at all but the taillight and headlight both on the drivers side are not working! I've changed the bulbs and no joy, just seems a bit odd both would not work. is there a separate fuse that might have blown on that side? The lights in the passenger side are fine. The indicators work on both sides though. The headlight on the drivers only works when on full power, it's when I cut the engine I can see the headlight isn't on.
Any clues? Should I be asking the electrician to look at his work as maybe the wiring is dodgy?
I'd really appreciate some advise.
