Hi my passengers side headlight doesn't work, new fuse, new bulb .... even swapped them over from drivers side to check.

I don't have a radio code so done really want to do the manual reset of the bsi :cry:

I was wondering if i could splice into the wires for the drivers headlight and link the with the passengers side .... ie 1 relay (bsi thingy) and 1 fuse for both headlights ....

Or if anyone had any other ideas what to do :?

There is no radio code you need to reset the BSI.

Probably the engine bay fuse box (BSM), although removing (and replacing with new) the fuses for the lights can do the trick. You can replace the BSM quite easily, there is a guide to it here, follow instructions for accessing MAXI fuses ;)

I would expect the BSM to blow fuses or melt parts inside if you double the load on its parts.
