I have a RHD 1997 E36. When I turn on the headlamps they do not always come on. If I switch on / off or dim / bright after a while they come on. If I turn on they sometimes light up after about 5 minutes of driving. I have checked the relay - looks okay. No power at relay when turned on but lamps still off. Any suggestions or perhaps a wiring diagram so that I can see what else is in the circuit

Thanks
