My 02 SS asr and fog lights do the exact same thing. I was wondering myself. Sometimes they get cool and then hot again...

That is why the electricity we use at home is AC, switches and wires stay cooler. DC always has an amount of friction (heat) that is higher than AC. Also the light bulbs in those switches create heat.
