Low-beam Warning Light

I have a low beam and a high beam fault light on my 320D 2007.and now and then the indicators flash really fast.
I have checked all the bulbs and they are all ok,any ideas please.
Even when the indicators flash normal i still have the warning lights.

Faulty lighting unit on one side maybe?

The fast indicator flashing usually means that you have an indicator bulb out somewhere. If the fast flashing is intermittent along with the low/high beam warning then it's likely theres a loose or corroded connection that powers the lighting unit on one side.

Garage List
I'd check connectors are secure to the lamp concerned, if all three lamps are on the same corner it does point towards a multiplug issue.

Send a message via MSN to m1bjr
Could be the control module may be on its way out.

Can you get the error codes read out by an independant or dealer?
