Auto Manufacturers began using High-Intensity Discharge (HID) headlamps over a decade ago in efforts to offer increased brightness and longer bulb life over halogens. However, the HID lamps require complicated electronic control systems for operation and thier overall design and durability may be suspect.
Many automobile owners have experienced intermittent headlight failures where their headlamps appear to function normally when first turned on, but will sporadically shut off while the vehicle is being driven. Thus, many owners temporarily lose illumination from one or both headlamps at recurring and unpredictable intervals. Dealers often suggest owners and consumers who lease their cars pay for expensive bulb changes, electronic control module replacements, and significant time and labor costs (in some cases front bumpers need to be removed to access the headlight assemblies) instead of covering the problems under the manufacturer’s warranty.
It is suspected that design and /or manufacturing flaws may be a factor in causing these issues.
