This is my only car and I really can't afford to keep replace a bulb this often. While driving 50 mph, the warning light illuminated on the instrument panel, indicating that the headlamp was out. The approximate failure mileage was 60,000. I ran the configurator on Amazon for the Philips H7 X-treme bulb. First it was around every two weeks that the bulb would burn out at random but in the past two weeks I had to replace the bulb way more often almost every two days.
Add some new appeal to the front of your ride with new Headlights. The problem wouldn't exist at all if the design by the manufacturer wasn't flawed. The bulb is not burned out tested on right side and the high beam headlight still works. The vehicle was not taken to a dealer. After reading your post a few times, I'm only taking guesses. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic where it was diagnosed that the light wires were defected and needed to be replaced.
The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The problem expressed on the recall is exactly what is happening with the car causing a safety concern because the headlight does not come on. The technician stated that it was the exact failure they had been repairing for the recall. Called vw explained the issue, was told that they have to legal obligation to fix it as my car is not involved in recall despite the same issue. The vehicle was not repaired. Were both fogs on, or only one side? Now the passenger side light is doing the exact same thing. Let others know you are coming with some different Headlights.
Volkswagen does not have any superceded part for the headlight assemblies, which means they have not fixed it. The car was stationary and idling when the light went out initially. Bren i, too, recently installed a hid kit from deautokey. About 1% of these are auto lighting system. Enterprises with an annual output of one million sets of automotive lighting, plastic parts, both inside and outside the production capacity. The manufacturer was made aware of the issue.
What am I doing wrong? Even the intact insulation is very brittle where the minimal movement of the wires, necessary to replace any of the bulbs, causes more insulation to break away from the bulb wiring. Sometimes when I was driving and other times when it was parked over night. It was diagnosed that the harness connector needed to be replaced. I called Volkswagen customer care case number 181250046 and was told they can not add it to the recall list even though it is the same problem. New Headlights keep your vehicle looking fresh.
Any others not so mechanically inclined are trapped with a poor design that hella, valeo, and vw have not resolved. Then it stayed on, left low beam was no longer working. I had to replace the headlight housing on the passenger three times after the original owner replaced it once. The vehicle was not repaired. Anyone replace the stock headlight bulb with something other than a blue bulb, which I do not favor? When inspected module that bulb was inserted into, noticed a melted area.
What am I doing wrong? And on top of that I just drove my wife's Touareg for a quick trip to the store - lights worked fine on the way to the store, came out and the left side faulted. I have the bill for my headlight replacement and a diagnosis of the car if needed. The recall fix involves replacing a small section of wiring and the module that bulb is inserted into. The problem occurs intermittently whether it is in motion or parked in a garage overnight. The vehicle was not diagnosed nor repaired.
As of now, I have been unable to locate a replacement part and have only one functioning headlight. The old socket has one terminal that has melted plastic around it. There was even a ferrite core surrounding those 2 black conductors in the opening in the board on the left side. When I added them into the mix, the lights still came on fine, until the car was started, then would simply turn off. The approximate failure mileage was 121,000.
I was told nothing about the active recall. Is this in daylight or at night? I believe the recall should be opened up to more 2013 vehicles. Shine on into the night with upgraded Headlights. I'm assuming because no one will sell it since it's known to be defective. Bren I'm not sure if the dealer would do it - guess you could ask. Anyone replace the stock headlight bulb with something other than a blue bulb, which I do not favor? I hooked that up this morning directly to the battery and turned them on with the car running. Light was replaced but did not work.
