Fauly / Blown Glob Warnings but the lights work

Hi Guys,

I have done a few searches but haven't had any luck as such reaching out for help.

I have a e70 X5 2009 3.0D

I think i have an issue with my Light Control Module

Around a month ago my car started displaying multiple warnings of "blown globes". Like pretty much every light in the car:
Blinkers (front & rear L&R)
Two Stage Brake Lights
Fog Lights
Head Lights
Angel Eyes

The funny part is all the lights are working, bar the two front blinkers (L&R) and the left angel eye...

It seems really strange to me that all 3 globes could blow at the same time, i have pulled the front blinkers and the globes all look fine, i have also checked the fuses all fine..

Has anyone else experienced multiple blown globe warnings even though the lights are actually working?

I think i might have a Light Control Module issue...

Please Help

Any chance the control module you're referring too is situated in the trunk of the car? I only ask because those strange multiple faults are precisely what I've experienced through water damage. Water gains access through either or both of the rubber boots on top of the tail gate opening and runs down the internal bodywork. It finds its way onto and into the fuse panel, tail light clusters, and at least one control module I'm aware of. This is surely speculation on my part since I have no experience with the light control module but if it happens to be located in the rear then do yourself a favour and look for signs of water ingress.
