Headlamp issues.

My 2010 Terrain has a issue with the insert plug and/or plastic around the halogen bulb melting. Does anyone have a clue to prevent this from happening. I have replaced the plug several times. Also, I replaced the plug to the lamp, again, and shorted the wires together and there is not 12VDC going to the plug so I must have I shorted out the fuse for the left front, drivers side, low beam lamp. Does anyone know where the fuse is located. The users manual has fuse identification for the high beam only, The high beams work, but, the low beam does not, therefore I am assuming there is a separate fuse for the low beam headlamps. (although I may be just obtuse and can't find the fuse in the manual). Anyone?

In my 2014 the voltage for the low beams comes as a PWM circuit from the BCM.
The BCM has several fuses so you will have to check all fuses that your owners manual list as going to the BCM.
Not sure if your 2010 is the same.

Thanks, I discovered that at my auto electrical shop. They replaced the fuse and, viola, low beams again.
