2015 F6B Headlight Failure

Post by Shadow_Rider_06 »

My 2015 F6B goes through many right low beam headlights. When they start failing, I can tap on the plastic in front of the headlights and they will come back on so something is loose or not grounding and that tapping temporarily fixes it.

I've had a look around, but there is only so much I can see from looking around the mount. Any suggestions for finding a fix?

Sorry if this has been covered somewhere else, but nothing was coming up for lights that come back on with a tap.

I had the contacts in the connectors that plug onto the back of the halogen bulbs in my old Toyota do the same thing, wiggle the plugs on the back of the bulbs some and they'd light for a while. The contacts in plugs were burnt and corroded.

Finally had to cut off the old plugs and splice on some replacements, been fine since.
