It could be as simple as a blown bulb or fuse. Not the easiest change but it can be done from the wheel well.

Is there any moisture ion the assembly? If so, you'll need to pull the bumper, remove the lamp assembly,fixture the moisture issue and on the housing there are 2 modules. The one on the side is for the bulb control. The one on the bottom is for the motor control.

You may find replacements on eBay or but new ones from Tischer. I would replace both bulbs at the same time as they will be different colors if you replace one from aging.

The Angel Eyes are a separate control and that's why there are working.

Don't ask me how i know.

I Love LA. It lets me ride in the winter with the top down.
