EXTERIOR LIGHTING

2/24/2015 - CERES, CA
MY 2012 DODGE AVENGER HAD RECALL FOR ELECTRICAL SYSTEM, AIRBAGS. I TOOK IT TO THE DEALER AND THEY PERFORMED RECALL "N38 REFLASH TIPM." BEFORE THIS RECALL WAS DONE MY VEHICLE HAD NO PROBLEMS. AS SOON AS I DROVE AWAY FROM THE DEALER, MY AIRBAG LIGHT ON DASH WAS ON, THE LEFT REAR TURNING LIGHT AND LEFT BRAKE LIGHT NOT WORKING, RIGHT HEADLIGHT NOT WORKING, RIGHT FRONT TURNING SIGNAL NOT WORKING. I LET THE DEALER KNOW WHAT WAS GOING ON AND THEY SAID I HAD "TO BRING IT BACK IN BECAUSE IT PROBABLY HAS ELECTRICAL PROBLEM". THIS IS MORE THAN JUST ELECTRICAL PROBLEM, IT IS A SAFETY PROBLEM. AFTER HAVING THE LIGHTING DIAGNOSED AND INSPECTED, I AM HAVING TO PAY $1250 FOR TIPM TO BE REPLACED FOR A NEW ONE. I AM VERY UPSET AND IN DISBELIEF THAT I HAVE TO PAY THIS FOR A DEFECTIVE OR FAULTY TIPM MODULE. I FEEL THIS DEFECT OF THE TIPM MODULE SHOULD BE ALSO A RECALL AND COVERED BY THE MANUFACTURER.
