Mein Auto: '03 Z4
Z3 Flashing Headlights with right turn signal

Anyone experience this or have an idea what might be the problem?

I have an '03 Z4 and recently had the battery replaced and also had a cracked rear brake light replaced.

When I put my right turn signal on, the headlights flicker in unison with the turn signal. NO problem with left turn signal.

Since it started happening RIGHT after I got the service, I am wondering if it could possibly have something to do with the replaced rear brake light???

I would like to have a better idea/understanding of the issue prior to taking it to the shop at BMW.

Hope someone can help....thanks!

Check the ground connections for the headlights and the turn signals.

And by "check" I mean pull the connections apart, look at them, clean them, and reconnect them.

Sometimes they just get corroded/dirty with age . . .
