    Hi,

    Two issues on my e46 touring.
    1st issue. A couple of times, when turning on my lights, the o/s angels lights don't turn on, but the front o/s indicator does. after a few seconds it will turn itself on and indicators go out. The Angls lights are wired in the side light circuit and i am not sure if this was happening before the angles were fitted.

    2nd issue. The glass section of my boot lid will pop open at random. either drivering along stick in traffic or once outside the house. recently i have noticed that when popped, the soleniod will keep triggering and you can hear it activting.

    Any ideas on the above issuses and how to fix them. Can give more details if and when needed. Thank you.

    With the first one i'd check the earthing and the 2nd sounds more like a short circuit or the solenoid is knackered.

    The rear glass popping is a common problem, there is a strip of flexi-circuit inside the wiper/lock assembly that wears and short circuits. It is a relatively easy job to replace
