Question about 2006 Kia Sorento
Low beam headlight bulbs keep blowing every three to four months. I'm tired of having to buy bulbs.
There are a couple of thing that cause the bulbs to fail, on e and very common is to touch the glass part of them, the oils in the skin will cause the glass to shatter, the other and most common is moisture getting into the headlight, this is easy to detect, the inside of the headlight lens will be fogged out or you will see water inside, ever had water touch hot glass? it shatters, this is caused by leaks in the electric weld seam, the only fiz is to replace the headlight lens assemblies. You can buy these in the after market fairly cheap from Partstrain.com, I have used there parts and they are very good quality.

I have a 2006 Sorento wtih th same headlight problem. And it's not that any of us are touching the bulb or is it moisture because too many of us have this problem. My buddy thinks it's the wiring. The way the wires run to the headlights, they are near warm things in the engine. When the wires get hot, the bulb thinks it's hotter so it's life span isn't as long. What needs to be done is to insulate the wiring. I have tried this and it seems to be working so far.

Welcome to FIxYa.com
Depending on which one check the voltage to the bulb if ok replace socket. Could be shorting out
