Mein Auto: 2006 330xi
headlight warning light comes on

im new here, just bought a used 2006 330xi, great. Im very happy with it. I have noticed that everytime i start the engine, theres a big yellow headlight symbol with an exclamation point that pops up in the display between the speedo and rev counter and it stays on for about 30 -45 seconds then it goes off. i have looked at my headlights and they look fine to me. any insight would be greatly appreciated.

Did you check your rear break lights and flashers? I also had to have those done under recall or STB so its a known e90 issue.

It's a dipped beam failure. See below. If your lights work still it may be a module, have to get it checked.
I can't remember if dipped beam is lowering of the lens (like on startup)or the actual low beam light.

Right or left high beam. Don't have the PDF on the phone to show the link, but after reading last night I think that icon mentioned high beam, check those.
