Lux V3 Flickering (Video)

I did some searching and couldn't find any real help. I'd like to email Lux, but figured this is probably the most efficient manor. Maybe someone else can lend their ears. Driving home from work, I got a notification on my dash saying a day time running lamp/parking lamp was out. Alright, I get home and check out the car and find the passenger side halos to be flickering oddly... Of course it's the bitch side to work on, anyway. Here's what I'm dealing with. Any ideas? I washed the car tonight, but it's fairly warm out and and there is no condensation in the headlight. The bulbs are installed correctly, that's for sure. Here's a video. Thanks in advance.

Could be a problem caused by a bad wire connection. Did you try moving the wires at all to see if the flickering stopped? I had a connection on the power pack go bad after about a year that caused the same flickering.

I took them out, put them back in... Nothing, no difference. Lux was great though and told me to send them in under warranty. Back to halogens for now... And damn that passenger side cover. 20 minutes of fighting and then it drops in. I don't get it. Oh well.

I spent hours on that cover.... Drove me absolutely nuts.

In the end I was shown a secret hatch which is under the wheel arch. To acess it, lock the wheels to one side. Then undo both locks on the hatch under the wheel arch with a coin. Makes it so much easier..

Now that's customer service. Exactly what you expect from a repatable company!
One of the main reasons you buy Lux over other manufactures.

Here ...my two previous 3-series had a similar access panel. Should provide you with a good idea where to look on a 1'er.
