55 watt hed

Asked by Feb 07, 2017 at 02:38 PM about the 2001 GMC Sierra 1500HD 4 Dr SLE 4WD Crew Cab SB HD

Question type: Car Customization

I put 55w HED's in a 96 gmc.  I now smell a sorta
electric smell.  Is 55 watts too much for the old
harness?

The stock headlights are 55 watts. If the new bulbs are hotter then that may be the source of the smell.
