    What's Up with TA wiring/lighting?

    Okay, I am so tired of my WS6 parking lights and fog lights going out. I replaced the entire parking light housing and wiring and not even a year later, the blinker works when it wants to work.

    any suggestions. I replace the bulb but that's not the problem!!!!

    It just seems like I'm always replacing either parking lights or fog lights!

    its the socket....the socket gets moisture in it due to the socket mounting position..also because the bulb burns to hot for the casing..it cracks the casing causing water to link in...drill a hole in the back top of the housing to let the air out. and also go to our sponsor that offers the window motor fix and look for their turn signal fix...its a thicker seal.

    We digress, about those front signal lights, I'm thinking of goin retro bases and bulbs. I hate those cheap plastic sockets and don't need the DRLs. Thoughts?

    thanks for the replies...so far the bulb hasn't gone out, (since I replaced it on Monday) but I know it's only matter of time before moisture (washing car or rain) get to it.
