Question about 1994 Ford Aspire
The headlight plugs are melting, burning out my headlights; i have lost use of my spedometer; air bag light continues to flash
The headlight plugs melting, I had this problem on one side. I found that the connector parts needed to be cleaned, with any abrasive object you can fit in there. after scraping the surfaces I used pipecleaner with rubbing alcohol, and also mineral spirits.
This works if you have enough of the plug plastic left to hold the connector parts. I then plugged it back in and had good contact. To guard against the environment, I squeezed some Goop around the plug.
The melting happens because the connector has a poor contact and therefore creates a resistance to the flow of electricity, resulting in heat...and melting. Replacement of plug is great, but no auto store I called had this plug on the shelf.
The speedometer cable on these cars are just not good.
