    While plowing at 3 am my lights were acting up and I smelled that electrical smell. Ah oh. My low beams wont work. All I have is the right side high beam. Thats the Module right? Anyone have one for an 08 GMC?

    Well finally found my ground. The square black box that is connected to the harness on the headlights had a hole in and was melted. A new truck harness fixed it. It was tie wrapped in good under the module so I didnt notice it right away. Its all good now.
