One of my headlights is over heating and melting the plastic harness its on! What do i have to do to fix it?!?!?!

I've changed the fuse and switch the wires, but its still overheating! The other is fine.

Thanks for any help given.

Are you using high wattage aftermarket bulbs?
If so, the Legend stock harness can not take more than 70watts, you need to upgrade your harness to a heavy duty one.

If you're using factory bulbs, then you probably have a short in your wiring somewhere.

Yes i'm using a Super White blub. But i don't think its 70 watts.
Where can i purchase a heavy duty Harness like the legends?

Also, why is it only one and not the other harness melting?

most aftermarket superwhite bulbs are 80watts.
I'm 100% sure it's the reason why your harness is melting.
You can get a heavy duty harness from www.autodynamic.com
