Re: Low beam headlight connector fried
When that happens there's typically a reason. Whether that's from a badly corroded female terminal or too much power? Subsequent testing is a good idea. If this is a result of a corroded terminal, do you have the large rubber o-ring on your caps, necessary for sealing out water? If it isn't water related, then the metal connectors may be defective, in which case the same thing may be occurring with the other side also. I have a couple of OEM connectors from a damaged headlight, I could cut out and send to you. In your situation I'd just purchase a pack of female blade terminals, crimp and solder them to the wire. *Quality* electrical tape will respond to the heat by shrinking the same way heat shrink sleeves/tubing do. Duck brand makes some good tape.
