There's fairly frequent discussion of what you should consider. Opening up the light assembly and seeing if it is wired as I suggested is probably the quickest way. It's better to show us the picture of the part you need or tell us the part number. I don't think this is the problem though as if it was then another door would make it work.
We normally use express to do the shipment, 5-7 working days, the goods will arrive you. I did think it was maybe a heat issue, so I got out a later thermometer and measured the bases of the inner bulb which has no issues and the outer bulb the one with the problem , and before the outside one went off, the base on the inner bulb would be around 180 deg F, while the base of the other bulb would be around 110 deg F. Putting this thread and similar ones together with that knowledge from the Ross Tech wiki you might want to investigate the headlight control module I think that's what it's called and generally in and around the headlight for wiring damage and moister to connectors and circuit boards.

After leaving my headlights on by accident for 8 hours at an amusement park last week, I've been exploring options for somehow modifying my headlights to be automatic. Right rear no tail only, the larger wedge base bulb. However, if I leave the lights on for anywhere from 10-40 seconds, or I turn the right blinker on, after a few blinks and or that time, the outer light goes out.
Well swapping didn't fix it either. I have tried new bulbs in the tail light, switching bulbs, and cleaning connectors. Main beams work ok both sides. I don't think it's a fuse, because then the light should be out the whole time. They are in the fuse box behind the glove box.
The driver side headlight was not working. Email us the production year and model of your car. They checked all of the fittings but still no lights. Any ideas before i check the bulbs? Caution: Make sure to do your research before modifying your car. Lighting up maybe only a metre or two in front of me its almost a no-go for driving at night. The front blinker also does not flash quicker when that rear bulb is out so I think the circuit is still complete.

The last two you can pull out the switch two steps, one step is turn on front fog lights, second step is activate rear fog light from my understanding. Tried finding the relevant fuse according to the manual, but neither the fuse box in the engine bay or the 2 internal fuse boxes looked like those in the handbook.
Is there a parameter you can change to reduce the sensitivity of the rain sensor? I Havnt had much luck searching online but I'm going to check my bulbs as apparently that can bring up the errors.

Funnily enough I got the same error two nights ago so I pulled over to the side of the road turned my lights on and off again and the light came back on, when i continued to drive and the road got bumpy it flickered so then i knew it was a connection issue so was quickly able to resolve it. I now have working lights again Still not sure what the actual problem was, they think that either one or both of the new Halfords bulbs may have been faulty.
