My wife drives a 1999 ford escort and has been having a problem with
the passenger side headlight. The ground wire (black color) has been
heating up and gets hot enough to melt the plastic connecting socket
and the wire insulation--sometimes the bulb will fry. The other wires
are fine. I am on my third headlight harness. I have made sure that
the connecting socket is tight, used electric grease, checked for
corrosion and made sure the ground is good. It never blows any fuses.
I am stumped as to why a ground wire would heat up like this. THe car
was wrecked on the same side by the previous owner. Is there anyway I
can isolate the ciruit to the light so this doesnt happen? I dont want
to have to chase around the main wiring harness. Relays?
