2013 Cadillac ATS: Minor Lighting Failure

May 21, 2013

2013 Cadillac ATS

Looking at this message one might think they had a headlight out. That's not quite the case in this Cadillac.

I was a little surprised when I saw this message in the morning darkness as the headlights appeared to be working just fine. After looking closer, the light pattern on the right side did look a little bit different than the left, but again, this was only if I stared awhile.

When I got to work I took a look from the outside. Sure enough, the headlights both appeared to be working fine. I kneeled down a bit to look closer and again the right side appeared a little bit off compared to the driver's side headlight. Could be just an aim issue, but we'll probably take the car to the dealer just to make sure. If nothing else, they'll be able to clear the faulty warning.
