    I seem to have some sort of gremlin in my car.

    When I start up the car the warning light for my right headlight turns on and my right headlight does not turn on. The error indicator stays on for between 1 minute and 15 minutes before it goes away, and my headlight turns on.

    This is not happening every time I turn on the car, but approx 8 out of 10 times.

    Has anyone experienced something similar?

    Is this a typical relay problem, or perhaps something in the general module?

    Thank you in advance for any answers!

    Not the general modul bigO...more to do with the LCM. If you have the codes read from the car, this may show up as a fault.
