    Do the lights not work correctly? If its just aesthetics the truth is that most light sockets end up looking like that after years of use. The bulb creates lots of heat and over time it cooks the plastic to that color.

    @joeyv141 Yea it went out.. went to replace the bulb and found this. It doesn’t smell burnt, but a new bulb didn’t do the trick.

    Have you checked for voltage at the electrical connected that plugged into the bulb socket? Hopefully so otherwise you'll have to find where the fault is.
