Adaptive headlight not working
 
I just replaced my xenon bulb on both headlights and now the adaptive headlights are not working.

I am not getting any malfunction messages or anything but the light where I switch on my headlights on the inside is blinking.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

If you do a seach you'll find that yes it is a warning about the adaptive lights.

If you don't get any message, check your switch command, is the little LED green flashing or fixed? and your main bulb headlamp side right is in position right (looking forward) or turned left or turned right?
Sorry if I don't explain correct it.

Is it the OEM bulb or after market?

It's flashing.

This morning I had pulled out the headlights and put them back in. The light doesn't seem to be flashing anymore...I put a sock on the light sensor. I'll update tonight if it's working.

It's oem philips 85122 c1. I think I might have just put the headlights on crooked...I'll update tonight.

Ok so I just removed the headlight and put it back on. It's working now lol, no idea why but 2 major things I did was fully push up the clip on the passenger side light on the big plug and driver side I just loosened the screws and let the lights move back to its original spot.

I moved the headlight a little to better fit my aftermarket m5 tech bumper.

Nonetheless it works.

Thanks for all the help guys.

Congratulation, at the first I thought the headlight had lost the bend adaptive function (like in my car), but only it were a bad connection, an easy solution...
