    Headlight wiring keeps burning up

    Ive changed my headlight sockets twice now. Keeps melting the plugs. I also have an issue with the connector getting loose and causing the motors not to work and causing the headlights to go dim as well.

    When you buy new motors do they come with all of the headlight harnesses?
    Are 98s different then the rest of them?
    I have to get this fixed since I work nights.

    Nothing is improperly grounded. The clip keeps getting loose and if you squeeze it back together it stops and the lights go back to normal. ordered 200 dollars worth of parts so well see what happens
