Coming home the other night on my '82 Interstatethe headlight went out. No warning, no blinking, nothing...just went out. Luckily it happened at the last lighted place before my long stretch of dark desert highway.



Anyway, luckily I had my multi-meter and tools with me, and after some trouble shooting discovered the culprit was the big plug on the left inside of the fake gas tank, just under the fuse block. It was badly corroded. A rudimentary knife blade scraping got me going again. Once home I cleaned it out with contact cleaner and packed it full of dialectic grease.........problem solved. Thought I'd pass it on in case anybody else has a headlight issue.

Someone needs to give you a bell, or a bigger bell. :)
