Hi there,

i’ve just recently brought a used 2017 a class and had to replace the driver side headlight unit. However the problem is that it all works fine but the indicator flashes purple and i have no clue why. The left indicator functions as normal and i made sure to buy the exact same part that fits my car but for some reason the drl indicator flashes purple. Does anybody know why or have a solution for this? Any help will be appreciated ! 00586385-5FCD-4A66-9655-C4A3634E164C (wecompress.com).png

I would guess the car which you bought the replacement headlight unit had swapped out indicator bulbs, sounds the obvious but just check the bulb that's in there currently

My A class is not that modern, are you saying that the indicator is built into the DRL.
What colour is the DRL when not indicating.?

The light almost looks like a day running light LED, perhaps its wired incorrectly ?

yes so the indicator and drl are the same light. When running drl it functions fine with the right white colour but when indicating it flashes purple instead of yellow
