    headlight bulb

    A HID bulb I had replaced about 15 months ago is acting up again. 1st it turned rose coloured & now is back to white but is only about 1/3 bright. Might this be caused by the ballast? I know GM wants to change ballast with the bulb. Anybody else experience this? Got it booked in for next Tues.

    Hello Norm,

    I apologize that you are experiencing a concern with your HID bulb that you replaced recently. I see that you have an appointment with the dealership for next Tuesday and that you are reaching out to the community to see if anyone else experienced this. If you would like any assistance working with your dealership, please feel free to reach out to us via private message.

    Hey Norm;

    What was the outcome of your recent visit to the Caddy Dealership? Did they replace both bulbs and the corresponding ballasts? Do you mind sharing the cost breakdown?

    So, where are you camping out these days (I suppose Leesburg)?

    Thanks

    I didn't take it to a dealer. My friendly back yard mech. charged 1 hour labour to change it, [he's getting good at it], no ballasts & the other bulb is new back in the summer along with all the bulbs in the headlight assembly, also did other maint work in preparation for our run down to Leesburg starting Nov. 30. Will be in Leesburg Dec. 2nd.
