Tell them that this is COMPLETELY unacceptable, and that you wish
to speak to an AoA rep about it. And follow through if needed.
It will take a few weeks to schedule a rep to visit, but they
will listen.

This is a critical safety component of your car. They screwed it
up, they HAVE to fix it. Don't turn the light off.
