Bulb failure light was on a few times. Call dealer during a business trip. They told me it's light bulbs. But after the trip it hasn't been on. So I decided to "live" with it for a while. Also every time the light was on, I checked all light bulbs. They all worked(while the failure light is on). So maybe this is a "false alarm".
