Right front parking lamp malfunction

So I put aftermarket headlights in my 2005 525i. Now whenever I drive, the "Right front parking lamp malfunction" pops up and it gets really annoying. How can I make this go away?

Any help would be great. Thanks!

Replace the bad bulb and the error will go away.

Did you put in aftermarket headlight BULBS or aftermarket headlights (full assembly). If just the bulbs, get new bulbs that have the proper resistors to prevent error messages. If the full headlight assembly you can either a) put the OEM headlights back in or b) get the malfunction sensor reading disabled through coding.
