Hi Bob,

	I had the problem of lights going on and off all by themselves until I
re-crimped all the connectors. I've been running the my original set of big
watt bulbs and harness for over three years now with no problems...I thought I
had the 80/130 bulbs, but rechecked the boxes and they are the 55/100's. I
think the 80/130's will melt the plastic headlight housings.
