without further investigation, sounds most likely either ignition switch/loom inside steering column, or a relay issue.

Try swapping the nearside bulb with the offside bulb. If the fault moves with the bulb, then the bulb itself is at fault. Occasionally, halogen bulbs give a distorted beam pattern, and no amount of adjustment will fix it. Also, make 100% certain the bulb hasn't been inserted upside down. There is a locating tab on the bulb, so make sure it is sitting in the cut out in the bulb holder correctly.

That fuse is for the secondary air pump which injects air on cold start up to help reduce emissions. Because it is cold emissions are not monitored the same way as when it’s warmed up so it may not trigger and engine light. My guess is that it was removed because it may have shorted causing the fuse to blow or causing a drain on the battery. I would either repair the pump or leave it the way it is.

Yes you will need the dealer to correct this, the two modules are not communicating.

Remove the battery and take it to an auto parts store for a (free) test. A failing battery can have enough power to activate some circuits (warning lights, sensors, etc.) but not enough to crank the engine (even if it's showing 12 volts or more).

BMW Cars &... | Answered on Jul 06, 2019 | 18 views

Assume you've checked the voltage on the battery? Do the headlights work? There can be enough juice left to activate the dash lights or (sometimes) activate the starter relay (clicking noise), but not enough to start the car. Voltage should be at least 12 v.
If good, try removing the battery cables and cleaning off any corrosion w/ fine sandpaper or steel wool. Try again -- if no luck, then check the main ground connections (engine and body) of the black battery cable.
If still no start, might be the starter relay. Figure out where it's located (check owners manual or online), then see if there's another non-essential relay (or spare) that you can swap in for testing purposes.
Finally, if all else fails, remove the battery and take it to an auto parts place for (free) testing. After charging, they'll test it under load. Sometimes a battery's voltage will be OK, but when a load is applied, the voltage drops too low.
