Default Flickering Xenon's

The 03 9-5 Aero that i just bought has flickering Xenon headlights.
First it was the right side, but now they are both doing it.
They don't shut off, just blink from time to time.
What needs to be fixed?

the lights might be on their way out. our '02 aero was doing this last year, and one of the bulbs was done. check to see if they need to be reaplaced, and then replace them if you have to. if ours failed at the point they normally would, than yours are right on track as well.

Thumbs up

i've been having this issue a bit lately but it is pretty intermittent. if you do go with new bulbs get them from ebay. i wouldn't be one to push it if i hadn't just picked up a pair for $150 shipped from taiwan in 2 days. 2 days! i ordered another item from california at the same time and UPS just got the shipping info this morning. can't be beat when the dealer charges $242/each. just look for the d1s bulbs, stock brightness/temperature is 4300K.
