R u sure no description anywhere for what belongs to each fuse? Usually a fuse panel inside car and outside car. Buy a Hanes or Chilton book, if u hav look at car manuel. I suspect the connection at light connection may b bad. Just some ideas!

No there is no description anywhere but I can check again in the morning , I'll also check to see if it's the connection. Where can I purchase those books?


Could be a bad headlight switch .


Are you replacing the right bulb? Do you have Xenon or Halogens? ....http://5series.net/forums/e60-discussion-2/left-low-beam-malfunction-2008-5281-a-137638/

If one light out I would myself lean toward the assembly it attaches to to b bad. The books u can Google or any big auto part chain should have it or b able to order it, bout $20-$25. They are always good to have for us do it urselfers...lol

Hope you are doing good. Maybe it could be a driver module issue.I myself have BMW 5 Series F10 and I was facing similar problem with my headlights so I bought driver module from https://www.xenonplanet.com/ and the issue was being resolved. You can give it a try.I am it will help you if driver module is the problem.
