I have also have had some bad luck with the headlight wireing on my 2007 Saturn Outlook. So when will usa ran company GM stand up and admit that there is a problem. I can't beleave that so many have had issues with faulty wireing that could pose a fire hazzard and loss of headlight function for safety. Other than that issue I love this SUV. I love how we are all playing russian roulette with our famlies lives due to a faulty wire issue in the headlight to cause them to over heat and melt expossing the copper wire. Thanks GM for showing you care about your customers...

The contact owns a 2007 Saturn Outlook. While driving at unknown speeds, the passenger side head light failed. The contact replaced the headlamp on the passenger side. While replacing the light, the contact noticed the wiring harness that connected the lamp was causing the defect. The contact had not spoken with the dealer or the manufacturer. The vehicle was repaired. The current mileage was 35,500 and the failure mileage was 34,000.

My 2007 Saturn Outlook headlight went out. When researched on the internet on how to change the lamp, I found that the wiring harness for the headlights on all model years of Saturn Outlook, GMC acadia, Buick enclave, and Chevrolet traverse have a similar problem of the headlight wiring harness melting and failing. There is a technical service bulletin concerning the defect ( Saturn tsb #09-08-42-004) stating that the harness should be replaced (with the same harness, so the problem continues) and nyogel gel should be used at the electrical connection point. The melting wiring harness is a fire hazard. I have the harness if you want it.
