  1. What is code B2575?

    9-5 Workshop
    Hi all, I've got a Xenon headlight out, and the headlight warning lamp on my dash. I had my local mechanic pull the codes with a Tech2, and it returned B3410 and B2575. B3410 is the front level sensor, but what is B2575? And how is B2575 rectified? Thanks!
