1998 GW Aspen SE. fog Lamps

One of my fog lamp sockets over heated and melted and will need to be replaced. Is this a common issue with them?

I've not heard of that before. Did you have a halogen bulb in it?

All the brighter lights are nice but in a lot of cases draw a much larger load than initial wiring was designed to carry. For heavy loads can power a relay from the light circuit and break a fused wire through it from battery to lights. Will work as stock but much safer.
