Default My Blinking Low Beam Saga Continues

Today my dealer went over my 2008 C-6 for blinking low beam headlights they replaced a relay, didn't solve problem, now they tell me the underhood fuse block needs to be replaced but they can't find one in this district South Jersey. they worked on this twice now' I am very happy I have an Ally Major Guard Warranty. My Question is does anyone think that this will solve the problem. I'm not sure as an Engineer at the GM Teck tent at Corvettes at Carlisle told me it was a loose ground in the headlight wiring. Thanx for any responces JAY

there is a recall that is no charge to you to repair low beam headlight issues

Not the recall problem the dealer redid the recall over the last time they had the car, the at that time they said the ground cable to the battery was the problem so they replaced it, that didn't work. So Ally Major Guard says keep bringing it back. Thanx again JAY

Both or just one headlight. Both will narrow down issue a lot.

Does it doing it sitting still or just while driving?


I would start with changing the fuse. Not blown but faulty, heats up and loses contact then cools down and re-establishes contact. Next headlight harness ground. If memory serves me correct it's right below the fuse block on the frame.

If not corrected maybe post a short vid.
