The laws in most states protect the dealer from punitive actions by the manufacturer. Applying for a warranty parts or labor increase will not trigger an audit by itself. If the dealer is audited it was most likely due to poor warranty performance regardless of the request for an increase in rates.
Traditionally MSRP for parts was cost plus a 67% mark up but over years the manufacturers have slowly reduced the mark up due to "market pressures". They are shrinking the mark up so they pay the dealer less.
