Default Need help...Burnt headlight wiring

It seems that I have burnt out the wiring on my headlights. Any idea of how much it would cost to replace? Would you recommend changing out the whole thing into the real HID?

Any help or suggestions would be great.

Thank you.

Lawrence

the same thing happened to me. it would be cheaprer to buy the harness and replace both of them. i'm gonna guess and assume that you were using some type of higher wattage super white bulbs and such which was the culprit. you can buy a higher wattage harness which is about $25-35 and that can be your fix but i went ahead and got HIDS. i love em and was going to get them sooner or later but they are a lot more than the harnesses.

Next time.....get those PIAA's. You won't be disappointed. Draw less power and produces less heat. Kinda expensive, but worth it.

Changing lightbulbs and harness is cheaper than changing the whole thing.

Might be covered under warranty. Go to a dealership near you, and see if they can help you out.
