My Ride: Clean 330ci
Eagle Eyes LED tails, one fully goes out sometimes then works again.

I have EE Led tails on my 330ci. The passenger side light goes out sometimes then comes back. When I start my car they both flash like crazy for a bit. also when the car is idling and the lights are off, they flash very quickly once every minute or so. Is there some kind of relay fix for this? They are not burnt and work correctly most of the time other than the passenger that goes out once in awhile. all the individual LED bulbs are perfectly functional.

that's normal. the flashing in the beginning is from the computer check. the other flash every minute is the same computer check but at a regular interval.

ok thats fine. but what about the one that goes out? i can live with the flashing but having my brake light out randomly is very annoying. especially because it doesn't say anything on the dash because of the EEs overriding something.

I fixed the tail light by opening the resistor box and re-soldering some pins that i guess had a loose connection. search "e46 eagle eye tail fix" in google and some threads regarding the issue will come up with an easy DIY. just wanted to help out other fanatics searching with this same issue.
