    Headlight being weird as ....

    My right self-leveling-main-beam-projector-headlight-thing turns off with dash bulb warning when driving over a bump occasionally. The sidelight remains on, so it isn't power being cut to the unit. If I turn the headlights off and on again, the right one always comes back on immediately.

    The unit connector seems fine, no water ingress to the unit as far as I can see. Any ideas?

    Thanks

    No spare bulb, not auto lights (as in the ones that switch on auto), its just 8P2 lights. It has been doing it for over 6 months, i'd have thought the bulb would be ok. What bulbs do the projectors take?

    Bixenon Aiden, so I would consider 2 options, swap bulbs across & see if fault follows, if doesn't follow then try swapping the igniter modules across, at least this way it will work out where the issue lies & replace the item at fault.

    D1S are the bulb type.

    Perfect, cheers. Didn't think much was swappable, will give it a go.
