My Ride: E46 330i
Please help? Xenon make me crazy.

Hi all,

My 02' E46 330i with stock Xenon headlight it make me crazy.

When turn On headlight while engine running, headlight quick flash 2 times then Off and dash report 2 headlight error.

If switch to headlight auto model then ran into tunnel or basement, headlight Off and dash report headlight error.

But if I do like this: turning key On, turning headlight On and wait about 10-15 seconds before start engine, after engine start the headlight keeping On and dash no report. But if I turning headlight Off now then turning On again, the headlight will quick flash 2 times then off again, dash report headlight error.

I have to stop engine then do this trick again to let headlight turning On again.

Anyone could helping me or any advise? I took my car to local authorized dealer to debug since 2 weeks ago but technician still can't find problem causing.

The technician also try swap Headlight Control Module (i.e. the headlight switch) with another car but it just work normal as few time On/Off test then become same problem.

It really make me crazy.....
