Headlights vibrating loose and going out.
Posted 02 September 2004 - 11:38 AM
I have experienced my headlights vibrating or working themselves loose to the point of going out. My driver's side has done it twice (the first time I went to replace the bulb and as soon as I touched it to disconnect the plug the light came back on) and last night it happened to my pass. side all I had to do was tap the plug (under the hood) with my hand and the headlight came back ON...weird.

I've poked a small screwdriver (or file handle tip) into the connector to squeeze the metal connector together. It helps for a while. (Note - I'm not inserting where the male blade connector goes, but outside of the female connector part.) Recently, I've just simply bent the prongs of the bulb a bit. It seems to work. I've considered actually twisting them a little to get even better grip, but I just haven't gotten around to it.
I never had any issue when I was running regular wattage bulbs.
