Jagtoes - When rotated CW and push in it will go in completely, no resistance. The outer collar is molded to the assembly so it does not turn. No double lock. I did call a Jaguar dealer parts manager that I know and asked him to check with one of their mechanics. He thought that if I remove the HID bulb there should be another cover inside the housing to access the turn signal bulb. Did that, nothing. What is really puzzling is that the jag parts guy says that his parts illustration shows a bulb. What as you and I can see is there is a 6 LED array no bulb. The parts manager said that he will check again and hopefully get back to me.

That plug you're being told to remove is just the wiring harness and not an access cover. ​ The bulb isn't user serviceable. The dealer is going to tell you to buy a new headlight. The parts diagram he's looking at is for a 2007-2011 headlight.

Your options are: a used headlight that may have the same issue not so far down the road, a new headlight for $1800- $2400, diving in and replacing the LEDs yourself, or paying someone to do that.

Like I asked before... how brave are you feeling?

Mandrake - That has been my thought ever since I first attempted to replace the so called bulb. After reinstalling that headlight and applying dielectric grease I got to thinking about the battery. It was the original dated 37/11 (Sept 2011) over 6 years old. That being said I have not experienced any of the issue associated with a low battery. Replaced the battery this morning and took it for a drive. The TS issue did not reoccur. Who knows maybe it was a lose connection or the finicky electrical associated with weak battery. Thank you everyone for your inputs and expertise.

Quite often on these forums many electrical 'faults' can be traced to a failing or weak battery.

If the original battery was still fitted to the vehicle, that is always a good place to start with a fresh, fully charged battery.
