    Front headlight not working

    The front right headlight on my 1983 E21 works only intermittently. It was working for the past couple weeks until I took it in to get inspected. Of course, it stopped working. I just replaced the headlight and it is still not working. What could be causing this?

    Re: Front headlight not working - some ideas

    Intermittently suggests:
    1. Fuse is corroded or does not seat tightly in the prongs. Try cleaning with emery cloth and bending the prongs a bit.
    2. The ground wire is loose or is not screwed down tightly. The cure is cleaning.
    3. Relay bad? I think 1 and 2 are more likely.
    4. Wire has a break somewhere? Again, probably not as likely as items 1 and 2.

    Do you have H4 lamps or the original USA-style sealed beams?
