    08 Corvette is also typical of this problem.
    Most importantly it is not just the low beam headlights.
    The headlight issue is endemic of the electrical system itself. I've encountered over 12 complete system shut-downs- tow services, towed to dealerships, lost power in remote locations stranded. Ignition start switch actually crackles, all lights, everything shuts down can't even take transmission out of Park as its electrically controlled
    Battery relocated to engine compartment overheats due to the electrical loads of the electrical system and heat dissipation from engine.
    This is s systemic problem not just a low beam head light problem.

    With respect to going to Dealership, that is ineffective predicated on how GM piece-meals authorizations.
    Also, GM has cross-trained mechanics which means you do not have Corvette specialists, as there used to be, and Corvette electrical and mechanical systems are somewhat unique to those Corvettes

    This is a Joke. My 2008 has the same issue. I was advised to pay for it or don't drive at night. Ridiculous.

    My 2008 has the low beam problem and GM said Corvettes from 2008-'13 will be covered under a separate Customer Satisfaction Program regarding the headlight problem. With No details provided at this point.
