    Getting irritated with the MFD

    Right, this is realy starting to me annoy me now. I've had a couple of different warnings/messages up on the MFD for a bit, so i've been sorting things so they don't come on anymore.
    Today i got a new front brake pad wear sensor wire, as i snapped mine last time i did my pads. I also got a new coolant level sensor last week cos the coolant level warning kept coming on although there was plenty of coolant in the bottle.
    The last warning i keep getting up now is headlight/tail light check. I'm on my second set of HID's but have never had a problem with them before, plus, the warning didn't start as soon as i fitted them, so i don't think they're to blame. Also, even when i just flick onto sidelights, the message comes up. Not every single time, more like 7 out of 10 times. I've put new sidelights in it all round, and still get the warning.

    Anyone got any ideas?

    They aren't LED side lights at all?

    Would the LED side lights cause the problem becuase they draw less current therefor the MFD thinking the buld has blown.

    Or am i completely wrong?

    I get the same thing on my MFD about the Oil Level. Check Oil Level error even right afterwards i change my oil. But to be on the safe side i check the oil level manually everyonce in a while.
