Mein Auto: 1995 BMW 740iL
Question E38 Headlight Problem

I am experiencing a problem with my 1995 740iL. Previously, my headlights turned on automatically when the car was running. Lately, they have not, but they will flicker when I apply brakes. Any thoughts?

Same here my headlights would flicker or cut out one light when I hit or bump or brake. At the same time the rear tail lights started cutting in and out. After a few $$$ the mechanic replaced the light module (LCM). Headlight problems gone forever the tail lights are another story people tell me there faulty... Lasted two weeks then.

Some bow zow back in to me on Black Friday the head lights check signal now bothers me and the headlights flash and cut out like before... Sad I feel like buying new halo headlights and a pair of new tail lights to kill the problem once and for all.

People on this website spoke to me that spyder lights are the best brand of aftermarket lights for our cars no check messages on the dash and work completely.
