    I was driving at about 9:30 PM and the passenger side headlight went out. No high beam, no turn signal, no DRLs, nothing. No errors.

    When I got to the super charger, I noticed the headlight on the screen was lit but not the actual headlight.

    See attached pics.

    When it’s on auto, the passenger side lights up on screen. When I hit “on” both light up on the screen.

    Help. I can’t drive like this.

    Call your local SC... that’s no bueno.

    Very interesting that on auto the screen actually matches the light status on the car (but not when set to on).

    Also, if you haven’t yet, try rebooting the MCU (Press and hold both scroll wheels)

    Also, you would think that if the car knows enough to not light up the icon on the screen that it would be able to throw a useful error message... even my 16 year old Volvo would tell me when a light was out (and which one). maybe in a future SW update *shrug*

    I powered off the vehicle over night, and to my surprise, everything works today. Strange. Maybe it’s a bug in the update (2018.26)
