That pretty much leaves it to a bad harness.

if you had put high wattage bulbs in there, they'll blame it on the bulbs... high wattage bulbs are known to melt harnesses.

Then it's a claim. As long as the wattage is the same you have every right to replace a bulb on your own with whatever other bulb you want, as long as it meets the specifications.
