    E60 530 d se 2003 (53)model.The LED on my headlight control panel is flashing. Handbook suggests adaptive headlight fault. Any body had experience of this ? The car has recently had both xenon bulbs replaced as they were flickering. They are ok now.

    Hi LIZOSC01,

    I've renamed your thread as per the forum rules which will help people decide whether they can assist you quicker, and also help future users searching for the same issue

    How long as the LED been flashing since xenon bulbs were replaced, did it come on right away or recently?

    It has been flashing for a while, I sent it to the local BMW dealer who said there was a problem there but it would be very costly to diagnose. I think their workshops were overloaded that day because they did everything possible to put me offgoing any further. Shortly after, the near side bulb became discoloured which i replaced and the the week after the other bulb just went. I replaced that. The LED has been flashing throughout.At the same time it was in the dealer I asked for a CD changer to be fitted but they said the i drive system would not accept it. They also said the two problems may be connected. I should maybe think about trying another dealer.
