So I've searched to no avail...

When I turn my car off and leave the key in position 1, after a minute or two my driver's side angel eyes start to blink on and off. I'm assuming it is some sort of warning but I can't figure it out. Has anyone heard of or experienced this? Any info would be appreciated.

Thanks!

usually both headlights flicker but more than likely its normal. it's the LCM(lamp control module) sending out voltage from time to time to check the status of the bulbs.

This is common if you have replaced your OEM lights with LED ones. It can be mitigated by disabling the cold check of the lights using a programmer. The voltage "blips" have always been there, but the LED lights are much more sensitive to voltage signals, so they flicker during this check, whereas incandescent and halogens do not.

Agreed. It's normal. Most likely you have LED angel eyes, LEDs are instant-on whereas other bulbs have to "heat up" to produce light. That's why it's not visible with the other bulbs.

Or gremlins :dunno:
