I know, its prolly because of those annoying bright blue bulbs I'm using, so lets leave out the ricey jokes. Anybody know where I can find one of these plugs that the 3-prong headlight bulb plugs into. The little square black plug. Mine is melted on one side, the bulb's prong exposed. No Good. I can get one from the dealer on Tuesday, but the spring break hotties are at the beach and I need my truck. I'm in Houston. Any part houses open on sat. that might have what I am looking for (already tried O'reilly Auto Parts) in stock or quicker than Tuesday.

Any help would be great

P.S. How can I safely drive (during the day) without a bulb in the plug? (I have daytime running lights)

I think any good auto parts store could hook you up.
But if the bulbs are greater wattage than stock you should seriously consider "relaying" the high/low sides to take the heat off.

Otherwise you risk harness meltdown( and even biggger problems).

well, you can replace the plug but it will just melt again untll you find out exactly what caused the initial meltdown. Napa carries them or you can just clip off some at a wrecking yard and patch them in.

Do you have any aux lights hooked into your headlight wiring? wiring a set of aux lights that are hooked into the headlights incorrectly can do this (don't ask...)

Hi-wattage bulbs won't cause the plug to melt. I ran 90/110 H-4s with a NWOR wiring harness that allows both filiments to burn symultainously (both low and hi beams on together). I ran these for about a year with no problems; heck, even the plastic lens didn't melt ;) I melted the plugs when I grounded out my driving lights by mistake...oops.
