Default 2016 CX-5 GT LED Front Accent light is flickering

Just purchased on Wednesday. 2016 GT with Tech package, black on black, 24k mi. Very pretty car.

Among some issues I used to haggle on the price, the GT/tech package has adaptive HIDs with an LED accent light:


On the passenger side, just fine, bright glow. Driver's side, dim and flickering, all the time. I'm thinking it's a wiring issue and I'm not getting full voltage to the headlight. If it's an easy solution, I'll fix it myself, otherwise, I may take it to Mazda, since the car has a little time left on the bumper-to-bumper warranty.

Ultimately, I would like to wire it up, like I've done my BMWs, in the past. Use a relay, when the car is off, they are attached to the dome light (fade in and fade out when the doors are unlocked/locked), when the car is on, full glow.

Common issue, noted in service bulletins, covered under new car warranty.

The whole headlight assembly requires replacing.

What warranty do you get on Mazda's in Florida?

Thanks, I'm still under the 3 year 36000mi bumper to bumper. I also have a 5 year 60000mi drivetrain and rust. I will check out the service bulletins. Is that on this website?

Service bulletins are Mazda's own system for the dealership.

I want to Mazda today, they are covering it under warranty. Thanks. I'll have the parts Tuesday.
