Burnt connectors?

So, I was having an issue with the passenger headlights. So when I got my oil changed I had it checked.

The connector was burnt by the aftermarket bulb. I saw it charcoal black for sure. $200 fix since I put in the headlights.

Anyone else have this problem?

could have been a loose connection, loose connections cause resistance, resistance causes heat and that "could"be the sole reason for the burnt connector..

Good point. If it's still under warranty, have it checked out; just re-install the factory bulbs, then Ford will replace the connector. Don't tell them you used an aftermarket bulb though!
