    Hi guys. I recently have been experiencing some weird issues with my angel lights. The right side - angel lights seems to stop working and as a result i get a dashboard warning. If i leave it over night, or sometimes keep driving they seem to work again. So my question is :

    1. Do i need to replace them or do i need to check the wire connection? (i would assume if the light is burnt out it wouldn't come back on? or is this an indication of it going out soon?).

    A week after buying my 535,my nearside light went off. i thought it was gonna cost money to fix then i read a good tip on a forum.

    I tapped it quite hard with my fist and it came on and has worked fine since.
    Not very technical i know but worth a shot.
    Good luck.

    OP, you have an aftermarket setup so if the wiring is intact, then you will need a replacement inverter.
