    It’s always the ground in this case melted socket at ground pin, works now think I will fix it right before I go on long trip. Now I will have to take the cage, the big tent, large coolers full of beer food and ice etc.
    So on to the rally

    If you want a non plastic headlamp socket NAPA LS6235 can handle the heat.

    Went to Napa first did not have your # for socket all they found realy light plastic socket and a h4 bulb $28 so went to amazon got 2 pack 14 gage wire ceramic sockets ( 1 spare) $8 a heavy duty h4 bulb $8 and a 10 pack posi lock connectors $10
    The not fun part will have to drive pick-up or explorer to rally. The good part noticed light out in my garage and I will be able to bring large coolers and much ice and beer and some food.
