e39 540 halo lights

my passenger side halos went out. I went to replace bulb, but noticed mine have a whole bunch of tiny bulbs, like 6 in each halo. All of them are out what to do. Is there something that powers all the tiny lights.

The e39 5 series didn't have "halos" until 2001 model year...you have 1997 listed...and your description sounds nothing like BMW angel eyes.

So take a good look to see what aftermarket setup you have...that way the forum can be more helpful...or upload pics if you don't know...perhaps someone will recognize what you have.

For example...did a PO install aftermarket rings (CCFL?)...or do you have a complete aftermarket headlight assembly...if so, what brand.

Sounds like the DEPO aftermarket headlights, but indeed, we can't be too sure without pics.
