what is a o/s??

My first and only thought... it might be constantly connected to power. Check the route of the wires.

i had this problem before. there is a relay switch in the fuse box which gets stuck each time u turn ur high beam on. when the high beam is stuck, look for that relay switch and take it off and put it back it should work fine. but anywayz, it has to be changed.

how can I disconnect my highbeams on an e39 until I have time to fix them properly? They fade off and on when the switch wand is in the off position.
