Low beam headlights don't work at times only on high beams
i had the DRL resistor replaced 3 days after i bought my torrent. it was new from the dealer and only had 300 miles on it. it stopped working within 1 day of my purchase. NOW, at 90,000 the darn thing went out again!!! i shouldnt have to pay to have this replaced again!!! this is something that should not go out like this and it has been replaced once already!!

my lights will not work in the drl position. Only when I turn them on. I believe the drl resistor is broke.
