Hi,

I have a TLX SH-AWD Elite since October. I like my car, and it is very fun to drive! On 29 December, the dealer replaced the driver's side mirror because the light (LED) stop working. However, the same problem have just reproduce, and on the same mirror that was replaced. I think it would be surprising if this problem is due to the mirror, but rather to an electrical problem.

Is anyone among you experienced the same problem?

Best regards!

Andre

Turn signal or puddle light?

It's the puddle light.
I did remember someone saying that their driver's side puddle light didn't work. I cannot remember the outcome, but I thought he got it fixed.
I don't have puddle lights so I didn't store away the info for later. Maybe do a search for "puddle lights". It's not a big topic like "transmission" :)

Definitely don't worry about it too much since the car is under warranty.

No issues with mine, 2 months in. Lots of city driving. filament bulbs usually fail with the sudden inrush/heat stress when turned on.

Can the dealer provide an led equivalent? Changing the whole mirror is overkill if its a bulb issue.

In fact, I forgot to tell you that there are three problems with the mirror. It is for these reasons that the dealer decided to replace it.

- Puddle light stop working;
- The mirror was making noise when folded;
- The mirror vibrated once during the adjustment

Also, I noticed the puddle of light problem occurs after some retraction of the mirror.

The dealer has never seen this kind of problem with puddle light. Tomorrow I have an appointment at a dealer for my problem. I'll keep you informed about the diagnosis and resolution.

Excuse me for my English.

Thank you for your answers!

Looking forward to the update. Google translate could not have done a better job, so no apology necessary.

Hello everyone,

I'm back from the dealer and the problem is solved with the puddle light. The problem was solved by replacing the LED. It's still strange that LED do not work more than a few weeks, especially when operating a few seconds per day. The dealer also find it very curious. There are currently three cases listed in Canada.

The question now is this:

How long this LED will work?

I will keep you informed of the progress of my new LED.

Thank you for your answers!

Best regards!

Andre
