When I looked at the housing up close, I noticed that the enclosure was all burnt and melted over the bulb! How does this happen? Is this a wiring issue or something with the battery?

Call and make an appointment to have the campaign done at no cost to you.

Hello, From what you describe it would not appear to me that something went wrong during your oil change. If the level is correct on the dipstick and the engine runs and sounds okay, then it is probably something else....
