      I have been to the dealer 3 times so far because of something to do with the lighting system. The MFD says "AFS Inoperative" and the indicator light flashes for bulb failure or malfunction in the adaptive front lights system.
      The dealer has replaced a bulb and power module thus far, but it hasn't fixed the malfunction.
      The indicator light and warning comes on 4 out of 5 times I drive the car and usually within the first few minutes of driving. It occurs with our without the lights on.
      The lights do work at all times, but I don't think the adaptive steering/lighting is working when the error occurs.
      The car is a 2007 Passat 4motion.
      Any ideas?

      It might need a new headlight assembly which comes with the afs module.

      Yep, they ended up replacing the entire unit and it is working properly now. Although one of there techs stripped one of the screw holes that secures the headlight and it's also not level..... back to the dealer again!
