    hi there guys new member here,just bought a fantastic e39 530 m sport and i love it,the problem i have is that it has teh xenon proper angel eyes headlights fitted,when i was looking at it admiring it today the engine was running and lights turned off,the outer ring of eyes would flash once on the pass side then after a minute the driv side would flash once and carry on doing it,i put the lights on and they come on fine and the flashing stops,i try to use my main beam and the blue light comes on the dash but no lights light up,so i lift the boonnet to find that both plugs are disconnected so i connect the main beam plugs and they just stay on constantly,even with no keys in,could this be the lcm?have checked wiring and all looks fine no chopping in old system.
    thanks in advance

    angel eyes and zenons were available in 2000, the facelift was October 2000.

    theres gotta be a wiring problem for them to be on 100% all the time. might be worth getting the LCM codes read mate
