Most OE factory wiring is marginal as far as amperage carrying capability goes. They installed wiring fine for the stock bulbs and switch. A lot of vehicles send power to the lights..head and running...through the light switch on the dash. This causes it's own problems as switches are the weak link in the lighting system.
If you run 100watt bulbs you will need to power the bulbs via a 40 amp relay switched by the light switch so the switch does not carry the amperage load through it's contacts.
Doing so will reduce the voltage drop to the bulbs as a 2 volt drop will cause the bulbs to be only 75% as bright as they would be with the full 13.5 volt running voltage..
You run a fused wire from the battery or power distribution block to the relay that should be mounted within 6 inches of the closest h/l bulb. Then from the relay to the head light bulb/s. The front and rear running lamps can remain as factory as they are low amperage draw and original light switch will work because you now no longer run power to the h/lamps through the switch.
Search the www for schematics for relay switched lamps.
I think you can try a hid light, because of xenon lamp no filament, so won't produce for filament broken and discard of the problem, the service life is much longer than halogen lamps, hid xenon lamp life is equivalent to the average car use cycle of the whole running time. http://www.chinasinoy.com/wholesale/auto-hid-xenon-light/
It sounds as if you have a short in the lighting system. Check the connections in the area that you were last working on the lights. Incidentally Xenon lights will not reduce power consumption, if you have fitted a 55watt Xenon in place of a 55watt Halogen you are using the same power. The light output will be a different colour though.
I don't know how to replace the headlight replacement, but I can tell you how to replace the bulbs if that is what you want to know. It all depends on if your vehicle is equipped with halogen or xenon bulbs. I am posting instructions for both.
1. Turn the headlamp bulb plastic cap counterclockwise to unlock and remove it 2. Turn the bulb socket counterclockwise to unlock and remove it (xenon) 3. Disconnect the electrical connectors from the bulb terminals (halogen) 4. Unlock the retaining springs and remove the bulb 5. Release the ignitor and remove from the plastic cap (xenon) 6. Turn the high beam lamp socket counterclockwise to unlock and remove it. Installation is the reverse order of removal.
WARNING: THE REPLACEABLE HALOGEN HEADLAMP BULB CONTAINS GAS UNDER PRESSURE. THE HALOGEN HEADLAMP BULB MAY SHATTER IF THE GLASS ENVELOPE IS SCRATCHED OR THE HALOGEN HEADLAMP BULB IS DROPPED. HANDLE HALOGEN HEADLAMP BULB CAREFULLY. GRASP HALOGEN HEADLAMP BULB ONLY BY ITS PLASTIC BASE. AVOID TOUCHING GLASS ENVELOPE. KEEP HALOGEN HEADLAMP BULB OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN.
Position headlamp switch (11654) and headlamp time delay switch (13736) in the OFF position.
Remove two bolts retaining headlamp (13008) to upper support assembly and loosen pinch bolt. Remove headlamp assembly from vehicle.
Remove park lamp bulb and socket (Sable only) and headlamp bulb and socket from Headlamp Assembly as outlined.
Headlamp Assembly (Taurus Shown, Sable Similar)
Turn lamp socket and wiring (13410) assembly 1/2 turn counterclockwise and remove from parking lamp (13200) housing.
Remove screw from park/turn signal housing.
Using 1/4 inch drive socket extension and swivel, insert tool through two access holes in upper radiator support. Remove screws from park/turn signal housing.
This is how to replace the lights on the KitchenAid khlu162m hood. If this is not you hood please give the right make and model # so I can get you the right info.
Replacing the Halogen
The hood liner uses 12-volt, 20
watt halogen lamp bulbs.
Before you begin, make sure that
the range hood is turned off and
that the lamps have had sufficient
time to cool.
To replace a halogen lamp:
• Remove 2 screws from the
circular metal trim around the
• Pull the trim with the lamp
assembly attached down far
enough so that the lamp can be
pushed out of the socket clips.
• Insert the new lamp into the
socket clips and push the lamp
and trim assembly back up into
• Replace the screws.

Skip that - it's unnecessarily expensive to use OEM parts. Get an aftermarket HID conversion kit and use that. Mine is from www.VVME.com and runs about $71 shipped. It's plug and play - you only need to specify the bulb style you have (H7, H3, 9006, etc) and what color temperature you want. Stay within the range of 4300k to 6000k - go lower than those and the beams are yellow, and above those they're very blue and the output is diminished. I have 6000k in my A4 and prefer it to the OEM 4300k color as it seems to be a richer light. For ultimate output, 4300k is the brightest, but even the 6000k is about three times brighter than a halogen light.
