The wife's i10 is suffering from the self-adjusting headlights. I thought the noise was a fuel pump maintaining pressure but an investigation at dusk had me sitting in the car, engine running, with the lights shining on the garage. Sure enough a whirr or two and the lights dropped and came back up.
Has anything more been discovered? Should we bother to report this under Warranty or is it just 'Character' ? My concern is come the Winter they may dip at an inappropriate time as the wife navigates around the dark, twisty scottish back roads ...
But (thinks) with her having such a generous life insurance policy and us having space in the garage for another Ducati alongside the one I already have, maybe I should just wait and see if it cures itself ...
According to the dealers I've spoke to there is no fix, modifed swtich or any other miracle that cures the headlamp issue. But it is a safety concern if ( like mine ) your lights start going up and down when you're driving along the road it could also see you gain a rectification notice from the Police.

Character my arse , the car has some stock faults that appear to be getting the better of the Hyundai top brass
I thought I would consolidate them all here :
7 Key icon flash's and car wont start (alarm issue ) does it most times.
8 Reserved ( something will turn up in the next few days to claim position 8 )
|Took mine in for this and it was an immobiliser wiring fault. Mine did get worse to the point the car wouldnt start at all though|
|Did the dealer swear in blood on his mothers life that they found a wiring fault or did they clear the fault code and reset the ECU ? It appears Hyundai have a list of 'stock fault descriptors' that are rolled out when they dont have a clue what the fault is.|
|Parked our new i10 on a hill with the handbrake on full - 10 minutes later came out and it had moved and knocked a wall over. Its not the only i10 that has done this.|
