HI, I'M NEW TO THIS FORUM BUT I JUST BOUGHT A '04 545I THAT HAD SOME DAMAGE TO THE DRIVERS SIDE HEADLIGHT(CRUSHED IN AN ACCIDENT). I REPAIRED THE CAR WHICH WAS VERY SLIGHT, THE WORST DAMAGE WAS THE LIGHT. THERE WAS NO WIRING DAMAGE ECT... I BOUGHT A WHOLE NEW HEADLIGHT ASSEMBLY AND TRANSFERRED THE TWO "MODULES" OR IC CHIPS ON THE BOTTOM FROM THE ORIGINAL LIGHT TO THE NEW LIGHT. I INSTALLED IT IN THE CAR AND EVERYTHING WORKS EXCEPT THE ZENON BULB WHICH WILL NOT LIGHT UP? I TALKED TO A SERVICE TECH. AND HE TOLD ME THAT I WOULD HAVE TO PAY THE DEALER TO REPROGRAM THE WHOLE CAR, THAT IT DIDN'T RECOGNIZE THE NEW LIGHT EVEN WHEN USING THE OLD CHIPS(MODULES). THIS DOESN'T SEEM RIGHT, AND THE BULB EVEN MOVES UPON STARTING THE CAR JUST LIKE THE RIGHT SIDE DOES? ANY IDEAS WILL BE APPRECIATED THANKS.
