F10- Daytime Running Light Malfunction

Hello,

New here i was hoping i could get some help on a issue i am having I went threw a car wash and got a message say daytime running lights malfunction. I noticed that there was moisture inside the driver headlight now my angel eyes on the driver side won't come on ant the self leveling thing is acting up, When i turn on the headlights i can hear like 3 clicks from something on the headlight kinda sounds like some ignitor not very sure. After the 3 clicks nothing happens, no angel eyes. Anyone have any idea what may be the problem? I don't know if the moisture blew out the bulb or worse burned out some module.

Does anyone know how to remove the headlights, Does the front bumper have to come off?

What module controls the angel eyes?

Sorry for all the question, but my warranty just expired

You can check eBay for aftermarket type in Bmw f10 headlight module. They're around $120 more/less. The oem one is much more probably like 3-4 times as much. Either one you decide make sure it's brand new and was never coded before because they can only be coded to one particular VIN number. Found this out last week as I tried to code a used one to my car.

First things first, maybe go to a shop and make sure this is what you need. Maybe just your DRL lightbulb went out and needs to be replaced. My symptoms for replacing the headlight module was I had all the error messages associated with the light. Daytime running light malfunction, adaptive light malfunction, turn signal malfunction, etc. I had water building up in the light for weeks until it finally went out on me.

Thanks a lot man! So yesterday afternoon after the car wash , i got all the warnings with my passenger light and the lights kept flickering , and my daytime running light went out on the same side so I decided to turn the option off and now today my daytime lights were working on both sides , but my passenger low beam would light up as I would turn it on but for a couple seconds than I would get the error on my I drive and it would go out again and same thing with my passenger high beam , (but now my daytimes are working properly and blinkers on that light) and it still shows a little water condensed inside . Also to point out when I was driving tonight with the low beams(normal) lights on my passenger one randomly again comes on for 5 seconds and pops the msg on the idrive and i click okay and than it shut off again and repeat again at low speeds .

Also quick question again , is the Ebay module quality cheaper , like will I have to eventually be worried our should I just go with the oem.

Also thanks I will have it checked out first ,
Do you recommend a European shop or Bmw dealership?since dealership booked till next week
