Main Question or Discussion Point
Long story short, I am college student with limited capital. My high beam went out on my 2008 VW rabbit and melted the headlight enclosure. The cost to fix the unit is $500 which I do not want to spend for a head light. The bulb is a 12v 55w unit. There is a bulb out light I would like to get rid of on my dash and was thinking of putting a resistor in its place to trick the system. I tried a 10ohm resistor but it just started smoking and didn't fix the problem. Does anyone have any ideas of what resistor I should use to fix this problem? any help would be most appreciated!
