Flickering Headlight warning light!

Within the past week, my right head light has flickered on and off 3 different times. It is a '03 w/ HID's. It always happens right when I turn on the lights. I will see a "headlight out" warning light. I then turn off and on the headlights myself, and the lights are working back to normal. Anyone ever experienced this?

My left headlight (i have HID's) would sometimes not come on when i turned on my lights, by sometimes i mean maybe three or four times over a six month period. if I shut the lights off then turned them back on, the light would come on. told the dealer about it during a visit, they couldn't find anything wrong so they replaced the bulb, and it hasn't done it since. I haven't put a lot of miles on it since then so i'm not 100% sure it's fixed but it seems like it is.

hope that helps

i belive your hid bulb might be goin out. i had the same problem and replaced it. what you can do to check if it is the light bulb, is swap it to the other side that is working and if it does it on tha other side then its your bub.
