    Hi guys

    I have a 2005 B6 S4 Avant with a bit of an odd issue...

    The main beam nearside headlight was doing odd things. It would flicker on and off, and then switch off for 5-10 seconds before coming back on as normal. No pattern - completely random.

    So, I've replaced the bulb with a brand new one (Phillips or Osram, forget which), and now with 0 and 15 minutes of driving the warning light will come on the dashboard for that bulb.

    The bulb is now rock solid (no flickering etc) - but the damned warning light is now causing the issue.

    Any ideas at all as to what this could be???

    Many thanks!

    Hi guys

    Sorry I screwed up. It's a B7 not B6. I'm going to re-post this in the B7 section.

    Sorry guys!!!

    Hi there

    I don't think they are self-levelling, but it has Daytime Running Lights.

    Oh, and bi-xenon. Takes D1S bulbs for main beam.

    Shall I move this to the B7 forum?

    That reads like your DRL bulb has gone.

    Hi there

    Yes, can be moved to B7 forum no problem...

    Take it you've actually cleared the fault 1st & cycled ignition & scanned again when car running & drl's/headlights on?

    If so then check the contacts for any corrosion 1st, try swapping bulbs around L to R etc.
