Failing Rear Clearance and Identification LEDs

Some LEDs in three of the five upper rear lamps on our 2017 E19 have failed.

Per email from Maxxima, they will replace these under a five-year warranty. I need to remove them, then “exchange them at any Maxxima dealer”. (There are two near my house.)

Alternately, they could be removed and sent directly to Maxxima. They would then send replacements.

Is it just us? Or have others had this issue? I couldn’t find any discussion about this in the forum. We just wanted to get it out there that there is a five-year warranty on these lamps, in case anyone else is having this problem.

That is a new one for me. Since you can deal local I'd suggest that.

Hi: J&B Mitt... Thanks for the heads up. I take a really dim view of the problem. Other than not being symetrical they still work. Just a few LED's short of full "Pucks"!!! Alf

They are erratic. Sometimes, only three LEDs light up in the right lamp, sometimes six, sometimes eight.

Hi: J&B Mitt... The only thing I know about LED's is if you wire them backwards they won't even light. I've been known to be erratic at times too!!! Alf
