    Bulb could be on the way out, the warning usually comes on as the filament starts to break away. The check systems for the bulbs, check the circuit everytime you start the car even if you dont turn the lights on HTH.

    I have bought new bulbs but when I went to work out which it was they were both ok, this has been going on since february lol. It came on 25 minutes into my journey tonight, in daylight and then went off. That's what confused me..checked when I got home and all ok?

    Maybe I will just replace them anyways and then hopefully the problem will go away!

    Same here, kept doing it on the display screen now I get the bulb light appearing under the rev count for 10seconds befroe going out.

    Btw if you park the car in a way which there is a reflection of the front of the your car on something (like the side of the motor), you will notice that when the car is complaining of there being a bulb failure you will notice that the indicator light for that side of the car comes on for about 5-10seconds then gows out - as if there was fault but when the indicator light goes out, the parking light comes back on
