A line of Dead Pixel on the Mini Info display in the instrument clusters

Postby Pocolo » Tue Jan 15, 2019 11:54 am

Hello

Recently, I have noticed a line of dead pixel on the mini display in the instrument cluster. My car is 2016 model and has one more year of warranty.
My questions are, first of all, is that covered by the bumper-to-bumper warranty?
Second of all, If covered by warranty, do you guys think its worth fixing it? I mean they have to remove a lot of parts to get to it...

I am just scared that It might get worse after my warranty expires and honestly, It is becoming more noticeable.

Here are some photo of it.

The bumper-to-bumper warranty covers repairs to everything on the vehicle except “wear items” — those parts that wear out such as tires, brake pads and windshield wipers.

It’s also extremely easy to remove and replace. I’ve removed my cluster before. It’s dead simple. They won’t Ben removing very many panels to get to the cluster. Your warranty will definitely cover it

Of course it's covered, but I'm not sure I see any dead pixels in the pics you shared? Are you referring to the vertical line?

I would think if there were dead pixels in that line, then you wouldn't have any of the images in the little graphics and text showing up, which you seem to have. I think this is just probably acceptable variance in the display, so they may not cover it if there aren't any actual dead pixels.
