Q: Wires to headlight not working correctly

asked by on

The wires to the headlight not working correctly.

It is possible that the connector could either be melted or have corrosion that is preventing electricity from getting to your headlight. I would ask one of the mechanics at YourMechanic to take a look at your headlight so they can diagnose why your headlight is not working.
