    Hi,

    I've recently bought a 316ti Compact where the headlights wont come on but the full beams work fine and both use the same bulb. So far i've tried new bulbs and checked the connections at the bulb socket which were very clean so need help of what could possibly be causing this problem. Any help is appreciated

    Cheers
    Colin

    Check back at the fuses for power, then at the Light Control Module. If there is no output from the LCM you might be brave and open it up. There a lots of little relays in there. If they are melted/badly burned get another, otherwise try cleaning the contacts with very fine diamond file or glass paper.
