    Did you replace it with the correct bulb, which rear light was out & check the wattage of the old & new cause if its different it could cause bulb warnings intermittantly even if it works.

    Might be the wrong bulb, also are you sure none of the others have gone since you have changed this one??

    Also check all the other lights as well, just to be sure....

    are you talking about the DIS? if so what symbol is displayed?

    you'll only get a bulb warning when the lights are switched on (he says stating the obvious)!!
