BMWs are known for their exceptional performance and smooth driving experience. However, your vehicle’s performance may be compromised if you do not ensure that your adaptive headlights are in good working condition. As an owner of a BMW, it is crucial that you understand the importance of your adaptive headlights and how if not properly serviced they can malfunction and affect your drive.
Adaptive headlights are headlights that respond to your vehicle’s movements and changes in your surrounding conditions. They improve your safety when driving at night or in low-light conditions, such as rain, tunnels, and fog.
Adaptive headlights turn on automatically as the conditions change, and are able to automatically switch between low and high beams in response to oncoming traffic to prevent blinding other drivers.
In addition, adaptive headlights are able to turn the light projector left or right in response to the direction of your vehicle. This allows the light to be projected on the part of the road you are turning towards rather than the road directly ahead, reducing blind spots in low-light conditions.
One of the main reasons your vehicle’s adaptive headlights may fail is the presence of water or condensation within your headlight. This is a common problem that can be caused by water entering the headlight through a crack or the headlight access door and damaging the adaptive headlight module. However, water is not the only way a vehicle’s adaptive headlight may fail.
Sometimes the headlights can fail due to a worn out or damaged part within the headlight. Due to their importance to driving safety, consider the following reasons your adaptive headlights might fail and how you can try to prevent it from occurring:
If your vehicle’s adaptive headlights are malfunctioning you will need to have your vehicle inspected and serviced immediately to ensure the safety of yourself and other drivers. Keep an eye out for the following signs that your vehicle’s adaptive headlights may be malfunctioning:
