ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

9/26/2014 - INDIANAPOLIS, IN
I WAS DRIVING DOWN THE ROAD WHEN THE DRIVER'S SIDE HEADLIGHT WENT OUT. I HAVE REPLACED THE SAME HEADLIGHT AT LEAST THREE TIMES. TODAY, 26 SEP 2014, I ATTEMPTED TO REPLACE THE HEADLIGHT BULB AGAIN, BUT FOUND THAT THE CONNECTOR HAS MELTED. I'M CONCERNED THAT MY OTHER HEADLIGHT MAY GO OUT WHILE DRIVING, SO I WILL SEE WHAT THE DEALERSHIP SAYS AFTER THE VEHICLE INSPECTION. I HAVE HEARD THAT IT CAN COST BETWEEN 400 TO 500 DOLLARS. PLEASE HAVE THIS INVESTIGATED BEFORE SOMEONE GETS HURT OR KILLED.
