Cayenne 2006 headlight issue.....going insane

Recommended Posts

Hi guys

I took my headlamps out to install new osram nightbreakers H7 in the high beam.

I put back the headlights and I got a check dipped beam error, the left xenon was not working, took it out and seated it again and now it showed check high beam again I took it out and reseated the unit. The high beam came on but error still showed, I drove around then the indicator error came up on the right side lamp, again took it out and reseated it.....everytime I reseat it the old error dissappears and a new one pops up.

Tried cleaning the contacts also but no avail.

Im sure its loose contacts, whta can I do about em??

I had the same problem with mine the gears had stripped so i removed the connector from the seat and installed on the back of the light before winding it back ,at least i knew the plug was in properly , i had to break the small plastic pieces from the front of the connector seat first but it did the trick . the painters screwed up the gears .

Are you still getting the dipped beam error? If so, double check both wire harness connectors. I had to use a zip tie on both because they would wiggle loose or when I slid the headlight tray back in I think I loosened it. Additionally, when I get the error replacing the bulb, even when I thought it was a good one usually solves it.
