    front right light issue!!

    My front right light has slowly started to stop working.
    1st off my interior light control would flicker then eventually go out when I 1st switch my lights on. Then my dash would display front right parking light error now that has stopped and is working but it's my dipped front right light that's displayed.
    Where do I start to look for this issue
    I'm guessing it's not the bulbs as one day they work and the next they don't. Water in the light? Wiring? (Probably) anyone had this issue?
    Also would the interior light control and the exterior lights not working be connected or just coincidental?
    Cheers guys hope you can help.

    I replaced the sidelight and it still keeps happening. It alternates between dipped light and side light.

    I have a simular issue. But mine's just a n/s side light not working.

    Someone mentioned it might be one of the control systems. I've already replaced my convenience unit.
