    I have a 2009 TRD Offroad - Has anyone have or had this problem. My front turn signal bulbs have been burning out. I've taken my truck into the Toyota dealership and they keep saying it's from my "aftermarket HID lights". I have the 55w conversion kit and it's been installed for almost 3 years and only now I am having this problem. The first time I took my truck in they changed the plug for the driver side and the the turn signal has been good ever since, but now the passenger side is burning out. They keep saying it's because of my HID's. Has anyone heard of this problem or have had it themselves? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you

    sounds like their excuse to not do warranty work
