have you tried putting some dielectric grease on the connector to make better contact and keep away corrosion?
The TSB on this issue instructs the dealer on how to service this issue. Including filling of the connector cavity with dielectric grease (I think Nyogel was named). Regardless, the issue is with overheating and thought is that it's caused by poor contact at the connector. Use of dielectric grease will enhance/ensure good contact and prevent oxidation or crud getting onto the contacts.momssaturn said:Hey.
My wife and me discovered the same problem. About a month ago, we had a light (day running light) go out on the left side of our outlook. We are still under the bumper to bumper warranty so we took it back to the dealer. They said the "Headlights are expendable items, and therefore not covered under the bumper to bumper warranty". I called BS on that one, asking them exactly what their interpretation was of the phrase bumper to bumper meant to them. Anyway I saw my argument was not going to fix the issue, so I paid fourty-seven dollars for a bulb to be replaced, but they didn't charge for labor. (go figure) Yesterday the new light blew again. We took it back and I told them I thought it was covered under warranty. I was not going to pay for another bulb. This time they said it was under warranty and replaced the bulb, and are going to send us a refund on the first bulb we bought. They reported to us it was a fried wire harness?
Is this a common problem, and tell me more about this dialectic grease you speak of. :banghead:
