Problem with Low Beam Headlight Wiring
 
My 06 WK has had problems where my drivers side headlight has gone off, then come back on, off again, and so on and so forth. When I finally took a look under the hood to check to see if the bulb was the problem, the harness for the bulb was completely charred and black.

Does anyone know where I can get a new 9006 bulb harness so I can just wire in a new one, or am I going to be stuck with having to buy a whole new headlight harness for all the lights.

I found some new 9006 headlight sockets at AutoZone for $12 and they are for high temperature bulb application. This should work out perfect cause I have 80W 7000K Nokya headlights.

While I'm in there I will be changing out the highbeams.

i THINK you should find what caused the wires to burn and remove it (HINT:80W 7000K Nokya headlights)

i am selling a complete headlight harness (big plug to 4 lights for 10 bux) if you are interested. see For Sale

I agree, those high wattage bulbs 80-100w are not good for the stock wiring harness, you can use them in aftermarket lights with a larger gauge power wire but the oem headlight wires are too thin to support that kind of wattage.

Hint: take out your cheap ebay china aftermarket lights and get a good set. Problem solved.

Ive been trying to find a wiring diagram for it but have come up short...if anyone knows anything feel free to e-mail at aaron.newton@hotmail.com I just signed up for jeepgarage today so I dont know if it will inform me is someone replys to this post or not....

Im running 100w and 80w street glows in everything and haven't had any problems. Except for the "foil" to reflect in the melting a bit...

You may look in to these to help... http://store.newlevelmotorsports.com/sthewihaupfo6.html

Yeah well changed my mind on the hids but after the failed install my stock lights don't work correctly, low beam on drivers side is dim and cuts out from time to time. Voltage to dr and pass side read the same, and grouns are good. I'm stumped!!!

Measure the resistance on the wire....

I would try going back to HID with a relay kit. Try Xenon Depot.
