Prior to taking delivery of the vehicle the battery was replaced. After several times of service for headlight failures, won't jump start, replaced battery, 7 mo. Later. After several other attempts was informed of need wiring harness due to after market replacement of headlamp. Replaced headlamps to factory and 3rd dead battery. I have invested $1100 since the second dead battery. Dealer says battery has nothing to do with electrical wiring harness"??" most occurances during extended warranty period.
