Does the dealer or other store sell a repair harness or connecter for the headlamp plugs?

Mine are nice and melted.

your dealer can get you almost any part you need... just the price is high.

What bulbs are you running, out of curiosity? sounds like some bulbs drew too much current.

Anyways, yes, the dealership can replace harnesses. I think they're about 20 bucks a shot.

If needed I believe I have a set laying around here!!.. and it does sound like you put a higher wattage bulb in if they melted

I bought the car this way, haven't pulled the bulbs to check what they are yet. I did a visual to see why the lamp was out and saw melted plugs. High watt bulbs are not that common around here, just the retarted blue ones, but I will check anyways.

Those tend to be 100/90 watt bulbs. They will melt the plastic socket for sure! I've seen it happen with Street Glow & APC upgraded bulbs installed.

Isn't 60W the spec on our cars?

Yep. 60/55 watt is factory for the cars. So you can see it's almost doubled and will end up causing problems.
