left headlight angel eyes failing to light
 
So I'll start off by saying I have no experience with the electrical side of the 98 e39 I drive. Just this week out of the blue, the left headlight angel eyes stopped working. The main headlight projector still works, it is just both of the angel eyes that are now failing to illuminate.
Any suggestions on how to go about solving the problem?

Thanks in advance guys.

Look in the owner's manual to find the location of the "parking light" bulb. (That is what BMW calls it.) Remove it and have a look to see if it is good. (burnt bulbs usually have some black on the inside of the bulb)

Good Luck

Your 98 doesn't have angel eyes from the factory. Are they OE or aftermarket dealies? Then we can answer the question more fully...

They're actually a custom retrofit into original hella headlights using oem projector parts and ccfl angel eyes that I purchased off a member on the forum here.
