1- headlight on the drivers side keeps going out. I jiggle the wires and it comes on but if I shut the engine off and restart it does not come on by itself. It seems that the problem is with the large connector where a large wiring harness connects to the wires for the various lights in the front.
2. I intermittently get a message 'no video signal' on the screen when I put the right directional on.
Just wondering if anyone else had these issues and if so, what was the fix.
I have had both problems. As part of my spring ritual I spray all my under coach/outside connectors with PB Blaster. Cleans out the connectors and keeps them from corroding.
I also spray the connectors in the frig and hot water heater.
For the camera I found the the connector would wiggle causing the intermittent contact. Open hatch on dash, locate the proper camera connector, they are labeled. Clean out well, use WD40 Then tape the connector with electrical tape and use something like a Popsicle stick taped around the connector to keep it stiff. It prevents the wiggle and solved my problem.
