1990 525i Light Control Module

Greetings and salutations, I have a 1990 525i and am experiencing some strange problems with my headlights. My driver side low beam was staying on all of the time and the high beam
worked intermittantly. The passenger side low beam never came on but the high beam on that side worked normally. I found an article on the E34 website (http://www.bmwe34.net/e34main/Maintenance/Electrical/LKM.htm ) and was encouraged enough to open the LKM and have a look inside. Mine differs from the one in the article in that it has only 3 relays instead of 4. I discovered that the base of one of the relays was melted and holding the contacts in the closed position. I carefully removed some of the plastic that was holding the contacts together and now the left low beam works normally. However I still have one low beam and one high beam that do not work. Has anyone else encountered problems with their headlights mysteriously going off and on? I will try resoldering as outlined in the article and let you know what happens. Any advice you might have would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Homer ......

I resoldered all of the components on the main circuit board and restored switchable power to both high beams and the left low beam but the right low beam is still dead. I think that I need a new LKM. Homer ...}...
