2015 Headlights issue
First,one of my headlights seemed to be out. I went to an auto parts store to buy a replacement and he said they all seemed to be working. Shortly after that the lights started going off for a few seconds as I was driving at night. That was a little scary.... The always come back on though.
Having an extended warranty I took it to the dealership for that and an issue with the satellite antenna. $100 diagnosis fee if warranty co. didn't cover it. Fine, I was sure it was a warranty issue.
OK, good, found an issue with the antenna and warranty would cover it. Was told both headlights need to be replaced and they didn't cover that. $300 per bulb and I guess $300 to install because total would have been $900. I said no I'd get them installed elsewhere.
I go to pick it up and even though they did repair the antenna and it was covered by the warranty, I was still charged a diagnosis fee. I questioned that since there was a repair done. That's the policy. Can't fight city hall.... :/
Today, after searching online for replacement bulbs, I've found them from $20 up to $140 (exact part dealer would have used). Not feeling comfortable that it's really the bulbs, I called my "advisor" and asked how the "diagnosis" was done. Did he look behind the headlight to check wiring, ballast, anything? No. I was told no codes showed up so it wouldn't have been a ballast. The technician could tell by looking at them they needed replaced. So, I paid $100 for someone to spend maybe 5 min. looking at my headlights.
Now I'm wondering what's going to happen if once I replace the bulbs I still have the same problem. If there is another issue, warranty would cover it. The lights still come on but they will just go out intermittently while driving. Would love to find out if anyone else has ever had a similar issue.
Thanks in advance...
