I had to get in contact with vauxhall as my dealer couldn't find a fault in the lights. I think the fsult code is stored in the light unit its self

I’ve had this issue for whole winter. Seems it is a leveling mechanism failure as it’s mostly alarmed during low or no light conditions, when lights are suddenly switching (night, tunnels etc).

I went to a dealer to solve this and they decided to replace right headlight - whole lamp, not some parts.

Go ahead with your cars. It probably costs a fortune after warranty period.

Yesterday I had the yellow sign for headlights permanently on, while speeding up in 170 km/h. After slowing down the light turned off. Speeding again up the light turned on at 180.
No fault message was shown on speedo screen.
First time this happened on high speeds. Does anybody knows if this is normal?

At least we learn one thing. If the dealer cannot find the fault. The problem is in the head unit. That where u find the fault codes

Hopefully I speed up again the car today, but the light didn't appear again. I will check at service for any fault codes stored in.
Was this a sign that some fault gonna be in the future, or it was just a random event?

Mentioned the intermittent warnings to my dealer when I had the car serviced in June, but they couldn't find any fault codes. Asked me to bring it back if it got any more permanent. Never happened again until last week when it started getting more frequent. Now it's just about permanent, happening almost every time I start up and the yellow "LED Headlights" remains on. It happens in the dark, or in daylight, or whether auto headlights is selected or not, it's now at the stage where it's almost permanent. If it stays like this will get it booked in.

I have different problem.
Sometimes I can't turn off auto lights (matrix) when full beam is on.
So if car does not recognize oncoming car an full beam is on I have problems sometimes turning off auto lights - blinding oncoming traffic.
I don't have Navi so I need to pull lever towards me to turn off auto lights.
Most of the time works but sometimes don't.
Meaning that I am blinding oncoming cars.

Any suggestions?
Camera was replaced, software update done...

A little update on my situation with Intellilux lights. I was called in for a service a week ago and just yesterday the warning appeared once again. I've reported it again to my dealer, who then put in a request with Opel to have both light units completely replaced with the new ones.

On one hand, I'll be kinda happy if I do get brand new lights but on the other one I'm now absolutely certain I'm getting rid of this car before my 5-year warranty is out. These lights are way too expensive to have a possibility of malfunction once I'm out of the warranty.

Another one with problems with intellilux lights!
In my case the error is AFL, I believe it will be the autofocus.
I already went to the seller and they read the error.
The right headlight will be replaced with a new one for!
I'm glad I'm under warranty. I'm worried when the warranty runs out.


Waiting for the delivery of the:
