my Cluster shows that my headlights are outt and they are working fine, and sometimes it goes away then shows my right tail lights are out?

anyone have an idea why?

thanks

It's been a while since I had to replace a bulb, but IIRC, even if only one of the 3 bulbs in either tail light clusters fails, the light comes on even if it appears that the light still works. So, maybe one of the three bulbs is burnt out.

I had a bad ground on my rear light which was causing the rear left bulb out indication. I followed a DIY from here to add a new ground wire and the problem has never recurred since (over a year now). I fixed both sides.

(Only time I had a bulb out shown for the front, it really was a dead bulb.)
