Headlight Warning

I have the umnitza orion v2 and projectors 55w. When its cold weather i get no bulb out warnings when lights are off or on. When its warm out i get a bulb out warning for the drivers side light when it is off. What can it be? I have searched and know the capacitor and fuse solution however i wanted to ask why it happens only when tems are above 45F or so. Also that same light turns on a few second after the right side when i turn the switch . That happens all the time warm or cold. If any one has the same situation or knows the solution send a post.

have you tried removing the connectors and sensors, cleaning them and pluging them back in ! could be just a faulty or loose connector

Electrical contact cleaner will also help in most instances.
