Wow so you just have HIDs in your low beams and that's what caused the control module to fail? Where did you get the HIDs / what kind? Did you do the install?

Anyone else hear about this problem now I'm nervous about mine.

OP- try taking it to another dealer and ask for another opinion maybe.

Ask them to prove the lights caused the failure. I believe they have to, or at least that's what I've heard.

In any case, I wish you luck. On the car and your spelling. ;-)

Geez, you guys are rough. If you don't have anything constructive to say, click the back button.

OP- I'd take it to another dealer, but you may be SOL. Sometimes you gotta pay to play.
