Fault advice

Finally managed to grab a pic of this fault that pops up very occasionally.
I have iconic adaptive LEDs and when this fault pops up the lights are functioning normally and within a few minutes the fault message goes.

I had something similar - maybe.

I have standard lights and this message kept coming up, although the headlights were working. It kept going on and off every few weeks for about 6 months when the headlight actually stopped working.

The bulb is fiddly to fit, so for Halfrauds to do it. With a new bulb, it still wouldn't work and the error message remained. Mentioned this at the 3-year end of warranty check and it turns out that it wasn't the bulb, it was some electrical component that needed changing under warranty. It was replaced FOC.

I don't know the exact terminology, but if your car is still under warranty, the Dealer would be the best person to speak to,

Mmmm, this could be a faulty module as opposed to a lighting fault. A friend had similar recently. If it is, it's not a cheap job, as the replacement module needs coding to your VIN & other modules to function. Defo a warranty job.
- Oh dear... But it's worth it
