  1. Auto Electrical Forum
    Hello everyone, newbie to the forum here! I own a BMW E90 316D 2.0L, Year 2010. I recently noticed my front driver side turn signal/indicator bulb has become very dim/weak ONLY when the main headlamps are switched on. Once the headlamps are switched off, the turn signal bulb works normally at...

    Hi, One of my switches for the heated seats (facelift) is much dimmer than the other. I've replaced with another switch and it's the same. Any ideas please? Cheers, Matt.

    Folks Sorry if this is in the wrong section but my missus passat failed the NCT on lights the other day, my local mechanic tells me the bulb was in upside down, now my understanding is that it should only go one way but on looking further I see that you could actually take out the additional...

    This is a bit odd, as part of the display is fine, the part that shows which gear the auto is in works as I would expect, but the rest, that show the mileage, the trip, and if doors etc are open is quite dim, and hardly readable - is this fixable? I have tried changing the dash lighting, but it...

    Hey there, my interior backlights like the ones on the AC controlls, OBC, light switch etc. get noticeably dimmer when I turn on the headlights. Cluster gauge backlight seems fairly dim too. On the other hand, the warning lights on the cluster and the interior lighting is perfectly fine, even...

    I searched the forums and was unable to find any specific answer to this question/issue... I have the auto dim mirror option on my 325xi and have preformed a few tests because I believe it isn't working correctly. In a fairly dark garage with car running, I put a flashlight in front of the...

    Hi All, New to E46 ownership. Had mine for a few weeks now and very happy with it, but I am now having problems with the rear lights. I purchased the car with a towbar and on purchase, tested the wiring socket with a trailerboard. All was fine - so I didn't check it any further. Since then...

    I bought the car this way as the price was right and all the other faults I easily fixed, but I don't know the background to the fault. It has the widescreen. The screen appeared to have no backlight. It was readable in the right light, but not at all at night. All the functions work normally. I...

    Hi, After my old car was written off, i was 'lent' a 1997 e38 which i've slowly fallen in love with and decided to keep (with the previous owners permission of course!), so i'm fixing all the small faults that i've found. One of the most annoying is the extremely dim lights when unlocking the...

    Hi Question for e46 owners, if you attempt to close a already closed window, or otherwise put a load on your electrical system such as turning on the demister etc - when the engine is at 2000 RPM or higher such as when driving along - does it cause your headlights to dim momentarily? Thanks.

    Hey folks, I seem to be finding more problems than I'm fixing..Ha! Anyway, the interior auto dim mirror wasn't working so I got a guaranteed replacement, which doesn't appear to work either! Clown nose flashes like it should. My question is, does the auto dim part of the mirror operate...

    Hi all, I use my E36 328i 1997 coupe for track days only, so have removed a lot of the interior. In doing so I think I have disconnected or pulled out something which I should'nt have !:embarrassed She splutters when I increase the revs and the sidelights and indicators are on but very...

    Hello I've had help from this forum in the past and thought I'd come and post for my new problem! At the front of the car, when I switch on my sidelights, the near side sidelight comes on OK, but on the driver side it doesn't. Instead the indicator light (orange) glows dimly. It also does...
