So, this morning while sitting in the drive-thru line waiting on my daily coffee, I noticed my right headlight flashing randomly from low beam to high beam. Just the right side. Weird. They're LEDs, and I have a spare set so I'll change them out when I get home because that's the easiest thing to try. Anyone else hear of something like this happening?

By the time I got home the right headlight wasn't working at all. Turned out to be a bad LED CANBus/anti-flicker adapter. As soon as I opened the hood I could smell the very strong odor of a fried capacitor... it's a smell that you never forget once you've smelled one. Hopefully I won't have to drive at night until a replacement comes in. At the moment I'm running without one so the headlight is working, but it flashes randomly.
