Came home tonight, my brother opened the lounge curtains to see who it was so i flashed the high beam a couple of times, funny thing happened, it went from two low beam lights, to the left high beam, and nothing on the other light, it just turned off, and then when i let go of the stalk (clicks back to low beam) it went back to both on low beam,

it did this for about 10 secs after this, and then suddenly went back to 2 high beams after 10 seconds of flicking and trying to figure out what the hell was goin on, lol.

its neva happened to me before. I had only just started the car cos i had it parked at a friends round the block, so the lights had been on for all of a minute, on low beam while driving.

They seem to be fine now, but im just curious, has anyone else had this happen to them?

I would venture to say that your one high beam is on it's way out. When bulbs burn out they do strange things with the filaments inside.

Oh really, these are brand new bulbs, mabey one is not quite in, or has come loose, strange, i put them in myself and they were definately in.

Oh really, you could have gotten a bad part. What brand are they -- quality does tend to make a difference both in initial build and longevity.

Mnaufacturer defect as Galcobar said, it happens. If they're new, just take them back exchange them to be on the safe side.

Or it could be that the plug on the bulb is just loose.... Or could be a defect.
