Mein Auto: 2001 BMW 330Ci
flaky signal - 2001 330Ci

Hi all,
On a new to me 330Ci from 2001 I get a warning light on the dash. Light out. The head light is not the problem, it's the signal. Blinker flashes faster when the warning is on and the light is out.

But drive a bit and the light comes back on! Warning on the dash goes away. I thought a light out is a bad bulb and it doesn't come and go.

any thoughts?

thanks a lot.

Light out warning means any one of the bulbs on that corner of the car is out/faulty.

I know - when it's out it's the blinker. But why does it come and go?
