Comments about Dorman - Conduct-Tite Electrical Sockets - 3-Wire Halogen Headlight 9004 & 9007 Bulb:

The low/high beam bulb socket of my Dodge Stratus 2000 for any reason got burned creating a ground problem, so I needed a replacement. I saw this item online and thought it was a weak item because I found it so cheap, but I decided to gave it a chance. For my surprise it is made with a very good material, fit perfect, almost like OEM and very easy to install. All three cables are the same color (black) so you need to be careful following the position of the ones you are taking off. The cables are enough long to move the socket around once you replaced it and made the connection. If I need one more, I would buy the same again.

      love shopping at advanced, always have helpful chat option, so if you are unsure of what you need help is just a click away! with the constant promo codes you will always feel as though you are getting a really great price. some things are worth shopping around for for the best price, but I find that just going to advanced auto parts saves me just as much time if not more than shopping around and I still get a great price. in this case I did not use the chat option, but have several times in the past and always receive the most helpful assistance of any place. I have even been told that they didn't carry what I was looking for, with out being pushed into ordering something "close" as I have been on other sites. couldn't be happier dealing with site or store!

        Original sockets burnt the plastic and shorted out. These haven't been in as long as the originals, so only time will tell. But, so far so good. The original wires are colored, so you must be careful to match up the high and low beam wires properly.

        Dorman Products are always the best! The socket retainer tabs on the factory headlight socket broke off after 11 years & I had to replace the socket. Dorman always improves every replacement part they make over factory.

            Hi Mary, I'm glad to assist you. The wires in this Dorman - Conduct-Tite Electrical Sockets - 3-Wire Halogen Headlight 9004 & 9007 Bulb (Part No. 85811) are not going to match the factory harness in color, what you want to do is match the pins up by location. So, basically hold the replacement connector next to the original and transfer the wires. You have to transfer them 1 at a time so none get switched.

            A:

            Headlights on vehicles connect to the electrical system through the socket. The sockets will vary by manufacturer, but all follow the same principle. One wire is the ground, one wire is the low-beam power, and a third wire is the high beam. Separated high and low beams will have only two wires to each light. Replacement sockets come with a small stretch of pre-trimmed wire.
