    hello fellow mwmbers

    just recently warning light has been coming on,saying i have a bulb not working , after investigation it seemed the bulb had blown, but having tapped the lens cover the light comes on, so i have looked at the connection to see if anything is loose and also looked at the wiring leading to the connector all seems ok on both issues, the trouble is once the light works it will be ok for a day then all of a sudden the warning light is on again and the sidelight is not lighting up, today i have tapped the lens cover and the light has come on again ? there is no loose connection, is there a relay or something causing the problem , its not the xenon light its the small bulb in the other headlight..

    please help

    You need a new bulb from the sounds of it. Try swapping the side light bulbs from side to side.
