I just bought a mint 750il. The high beams do not work, the dash indicator light for the high beams comes on but the outside lights do not. Is there a module that controls them that I can check for. Any help would be appreciated.

thanks

Not positive on that specific vehicle, you'll need to reference a bently manual or equivalent. Most likely going to be in the junction box under the hood. The wires to the backs of the bulbs are plugged in and the bulbs aren't burnt out correct? Double check that first if you haven't already done so.
