Need help with Halo install

Hi new to forum need help with halo lights. got some aftermarket projector halo lights for my 528i 2000. when i installed them i connected the halo to the parking lights and on the passenger side the halo rings stay on and work fine but on the drivers side also connected to the parking light the halo turns on and after 10 min they turn off leaving only the passenger side halo rings on is there any other place i can get 12volts to power up the driver side Halo rings thank you

Welcome to the Werkz

Why don't you just run them both from the same supply point? Are you sure that it's not an issue with the halo unit itself? Does you parking light on the drivers go off with the Halo? If it doesn't I'd say you've got a dodgy kit.

Hi and thanks for answering yes i tried connecting them to the same supply point but it didn't work the halo rings on both head lights didn't turn on at all. i connected the driver side halo to the passenger side supply point and it worked fine. the parking light on the drivers side has always worked fine it's only the halo rings that when i connect to the drivers side parking lights they light for 10 min then turn off. but the parking light stays on. i read on a Bmw forum that these cars won't supply 12volts from the drivers side to power the Halo rings from that side so i ask is there any other way to power the drivers side Halo rings thank you

sorry no errors on dash board remember these are aftermarket projector lights from E-bay only problems is getting the 12 volts from the drivers side to power the halo rings the head light works fine low beam and high beam it's just the halo rings that are not getting enough power to keep them on

Did you disconnect the side-lights and use that feed solely for the halo's?

Your halo's would be better employed as side-lights !
