had my challenger towed to the dealership after it wouldn't start up. a week before my control module in my HID harness went out which its done before. I called today and found out that apparently its all due to the HID kit shorting out and frying the fuse box and won't be covered under the lifetime warranty. $1100 for this bull****. Ive ran HIDs in my truck for over 5 years and never had one problem. Wtf is this about?

I assume this was an aftermarket HID kit not a factory HID option. If so they are right, there is no reason for them to cover damage caused by the aftermarket kit shorting out.

It was an aftermarket kit as i don't have projectors. Ive had hits for years like I've said in my truck and never once encountered problems with a kit or fuses blowing. but I've had several problems with the challenger and these damn hid aftermarket kits, I shoulda known to have taken the kit out and went back to stock before towing it in. Im just really pissed off this challenger seems to continuously have electrical problems.
OK, just so I understand this, you or someone else installed an aftermarket part and you claim that the aftermarket part caused the problem. But you want your warranty to cover the damage crated by your use of aftermarket parts.
Then you admit "I shoulda known to have taken the kit out and went back to stock before towing it in". Why? To commit fraud against Dodge and the dealer that has to put up with you.
Then you state "Im just really pissed off this challenger seems to continuously have electrical problems." It sounds like you have caused and created the problems.
Just remember what goes around comes around
