I go my 09 loved it but now I have no dash lights, my turn signals in the rear don't work, my driverside head lamp don't work. I've read everything there is on these types of problems. An most of them are in whom ever the designerror was of the computer board in the dash. And the tipm for the lights.

When I turn on my signals to make a turn, one of my headlights goes out. Sometimes at night it's difficult to see where I'm turning into. Also sometimes when I turn my car on and turn on my headlights, they won't turn on. But when I put my in reverse and drive, they turn on. I got stopped Friday night because the police officer said my headlights were out and when I tested them out they wouldn't turn on while I was sitting still. I took them to Goodyear the next day and told what was wrong. They checked them out and said that nothing was wrong and everything was working right. Hazardous night time driving.

I notice a few after my car inspection, water was in my driver tail light housing. Housing was drained. After about 2 month my daughter ask what that dark looking stuff was in my driver tail light housing was. Of course it was water again, and the lights stop working. Please fix this problem soon. Thanks
