Lamp Bulb Defective

If I change the connector for the fog lights with bullet connections will that effect the light bulb defective circuit.. Does anybody know how it works ? Is it from the amount of current that is drawn from all of the bulbs ? I wasn't sure if I changed the connector would that effect the resistence in the circuit...

I speak from total ignorance of the car concerned, but find it hard to imagine why a manufacturer would deliberately introduce resistance into a connector. If the bulb is rated at 12V it should get the full 12V.

I presume the connectors have failed in some way on your car. Why not replace them with new, identical connectors?

Light bulb defective Cont.

The connector is bad I had took it apart to resolder it, but it still is bad after about a year. I tried the dealership, but no part number. I forget which side is bad male or female. That's why I was going to replace the whole thing with some bullet connectors. I just was not sure if it will effect the circuit...
