Default Driver side headlight flickers.

Driver side headlight flickers.
It started as the turn signal being temper mental. Then the dip beam would occasionally not work.
The first time I turned it in the dealer could not duplicate the problem. The second time I turned it in they changed all the bulbs on the driver side. The third time I turned it in they changed the whole headlight assembly.
It seemed to work.
Work long enough for my warranty to expire.
Now its happening again.
I have now been told it maybe my headlight switch. Has anyone had similar issues?

Since you have been reporting this problem well before your warranty expired and they have just pin pointed the problem, they should still make good on the problem. I would explain to them in detail it is their responsibility to do so, and it is not your fault that they could not determine the problem.

It sounds like the problem you are having is either due to the carrier for the light and or the harness that plugs into the back of the light itself. I bet the carrier fasteners are loose thus causing the light to move thus unplugging the headlight assy. I have seen this many times.
Hope this helps
