problem #1

While driving in the late evening hours, the headlights were not able to be turned on because of a broken switch knob. The 2002 Lincoln Continental was taken to stivers automotive of columbia, SC to replace the lighting switch knob. A complete diagnostic was performed on the car and the dealership decided to replace the entire lighting switch processor at a cost of $1213.73 plus labor of $134.65. The headlight knob broke into two pieces and prevented the switch from being turned on and by not coming on created a safety hazard for my family was were extremely dangerous to other drivers on the freeway. I requested the processor that was removed to see if it really was broken and hope to have the part tested by a lab.
