Question about Cars & Trucks
The low-beam headlight will work for a little while and then quit. If I unplug the light from the wire and plug it back in, the headlight will come back on. A day or two later and the same thing happens. I replace the small wire from the headlight to the harness and that didn't help. Any ideas?

I lookd for the Technical Service Bulletin on headlights that you referred to in our Live Chat. It is Service Bulletin 07-027 dated May 12, 2007. A downloadable copy is avaibale here. It contains procedures, photos and images on how to address the issue. However, may I point out that said TSB refers to both left & right low beams and not only the right.
Hope this be of additional help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.

Get yourself to a junkyard and pack yourself a light lunch while you're at it. Take a leisurely stroll through the junk that closely resembles the one you need parts for. Go to the closest wiring harness to the headlight assembly, take your time and don't go trying to **** it, and unplug it from the bulbs up front. Make a simple and straight forward swap and do take the time to stop and smell the junkers, it's quite relaxing! Then, you should seriously make sure your new wiring harness is properly grounded (!), which I suspect to have been a contribing factor to your problem of overheating the bulb socket. Do take the time to go over the stuff that should be grounded and make it so. Th e job is quite simple and well worth you taking the time to do it yourself.
