Default Default Adaptive Headlight Defect After Replacing Bulb

Hey all,

I had a headlight go out on the driver side. Pulled the front left wheel off and replaced the bulbs. I now have a warning dashboard light saying "Adaptive Headlight Defect". The bulb works on both high & low beam.

I got these bulbs:
Amazon Amazon

Are these bulbs not compatible? Or can anyone think of a likely explanation since the adaptive headlights worked before the bulb went out (as far as I know)?

I'm going to pull it back apart tomorrow and see if I can spot an issue.

Thanks

Do your additional cornering lights still work?
If so, maybe a wire got damaged as they are pulled so taut in there.
