    as the title says my angel eyes have stopped working on the near side.
    i had a brief look in the dark to see if it was a fuse but couldn't find a blown one.
    i didn't fit these as they were on the car when i bought it so i don't really know much about them but, is there anyway of testing to see whats wrong?

    Check the fuse again in daylight but it could be a loose wire as it joins the sidelight plug

    are they ccfl or LED?

    ccfl are known to busting in cold weather?

    check wiring as spirit says first, just turn sidelights on and have a wiggle.

    Did check the fuse again today in the day light and it looks good, took the headlight out at work today and powered it up directly to the inverter with a power probe and still nothing. so ive ordered a couple of inverters as i guess if it was one of the rings i would still get one working.
    anyway it was worth doing to clean all of the lenses and clear my teary eye out :P just gotta clean my other headlight out now ^^
