  13. Fading in and out interior lights, speedo, radio

    Like said get a multimeter, voltage when engine off will tell you how good your battery is charged. Voltage when engine is on will tell you the alternator output, ideally it should be between 13.8-14.7 or so any less it is the culprit. Also with engine on turn on everything you can like aircon ,blower, main beam ,dipped radio etc and check again, alternator should keep up and voltage should still be in those figures above
  14. Fading in and out interior lights, speedo, radio

    I don't know much about your E39s previous problems but my first suggestions would be to check your battery and alternator health with a multimeter , alternators in these cars do tend to fail and as they try to charge the battery the voltage isnt enough to keep up hence you get flickering and warning lights
  15. Angel eyes upgrade to xenon

    Cheers DAN much appreciated i wonder if those error cancellers will do the job fine instead of coding Does the genuine BMW ballast bracket fit to the back of the Non Xenon angel eye headlamp with no modifications?
