Wondering if anyone would know the answer to this question, if its able to be answered at all.
After installing the slim cubby HID kit, my alternator died out. Got it replaced yesterday and 30 miles later, the alternator seemed to die again and the new battery died. Im thinking something in the HID wiring caused the short. The mechanic stated the engine bay looked like I went offroading and that couldve got water into the alternator.
My dilemma at this time is whether to get it towed to the dealership. Im 50 miles away from the dealership and they are telling me that if the issue is not covered under warranty, I must pay for the tow.
Obviously something is killing my alternator but im worried im gonna get stuck with towing charges and parts and labor if they try to pin the issue to the HID install or the dirty engine bay (I did not go offroad at all though).
Any suggestions anyone could provide?
