Adaptive headlight error?

They say things happen in 3s - this is my third little issue and I have no doubt it will be the last!!!! Rained today in Vegas, got in car to drive home, lights came on automatically with the 'adaptive headlight error' caution on it. Cycled lights from off to on and back to auto to no avail. Pulled into a parking lot, turned off car, inspected lights visually (nothing obvious to me) and turned car back on. Caution went away and lights worked normally. I'll mention it to the dealer on Wednesday when they take it in for my window but as long as it was just a hiccup I'm not all too worried. Anybody experience the same?

Just a hiccup. Unless it reoccurs, don't sweat it.

Probably right, however be SURE to mention it when you take the car in so that a notation gets in the system you had the problem.

Well, it turns out the 'headlight control module' was bad. They ordered a replacement. With some luck I'll get it installed Friday morning.
