Wouldn't hurt to swap tunes, better safe than sorry. It's all up to the dealer if they want to investigate warranty breaking items such as added hardware or a tune.

The tune won't affect the warranty on a headlight.

Has nothing to do with a headlight , I agree BUT
Take the tune off and drive it at least 50 miles...Most good Dealers plug in the vehicle just to see if there are any codes or updates needed, as a service to the customer....However if the tune is spotted it will no doubt be noted in service records, and may come back to haunt you later........Best regards Plum

Yea, as i recall i have heard from people that any changes they notice to the car that didnt come with the car get noted down and recorded. If they dont bring it up now they deff will if you have any engine problems in the future.

Takes about 50 miles to clear the recently reset flag... Just says the ECU had been reset be it caused from loss of power, flash, or even trouble code reset is debatable that's why emissions wise they will not test if this flag has not reset either.

For future reference... You could just switch out the fuse yourself. The fuse box is on the passenger side in the leg area to the right. I believe the fuse for the left headlight is #7 and it's 10amps if I remember correctly. If you look at the owners manual, it tells you what fuse goes to what. I just had the same issue with my passenger side and I found out the fuse went out so I just replaced it. Works now!
