that was addressed in the low beam recall a few years..shorted..burnt

Customer Question

I have continued to trouble shoot the areas that we spoke of earlier, i followed the wires from the dimmer switch. Much to my surprise i fould what i believe to be splice pack S102, it would appear this was the splice pack issue that was addressed in the low beam recall a few years back. I saw the splice fix that the dealer applied, but on the other end of the splice block other wires have shorted and burnt the insulation off. What do you think
