Re: '06 DTS Turn Signal Out...Housing Appears Melted
Cosign on the melted turn signal housings! Bought an 08 and the housings on both turn signals are EQUALLY melted on on the metal pieces above the bulbs. I am guessing the previous owner must have left the hazards on for a period of time.
My 07 never had the hazards on for long and hasn't been driven with "old man style Turn Signal On" situations. But those metal pieces are definitely starting to show a little tiny notch where it is starting to melt!
The turn signals act as the DRLs, so in the daytime, they are on the entire time unless the headlights are on. I'm glad I replaced mine with LEDs when I did. Mine were fairly cooked when I took the out.
