Dipped Headlight & Fog Light Error Message

Hi,

I'm intermittently getting a "right dipped headlight" error message (and the light goes out when this happens), and if I put my fog lights on a "right fog light" out message every time (and the fog light never works). I also have a bit of a flickering going on in the right headlight.

After a bit of googling it appears that this could be down to a bulb, ballast or electrical issue. I've ordered new headlight and fog light bulbs so will try them to see if that fixes anything but is there anything else I could do in the meantime?

I've had a VCDS log ran on in which looks to me like it could all be electrical, but I'm not very familiar with these logs. The error faults that it shows are:

If anyone has any ideas/opinions I'd be grateful, I'll probably take it to an auto electrician to see if they have any opinions before I involve the dealer.

Thanks,
Mark

Swap the headlights across & see if the fault follows or stays on that side, this will advise more where the fault may lay.
