Question about 2005 Pontiac Grand Prix GT
The passenger headlight bulb will not last for long before blowing out. Before I go out an purchase a new headlight connector was wondering if anyone else had this issue and what did they do to resolve. The connector seems to be in good condition, I do not see any corrosion on the wires or connector. I am hoping it is just a matter of securing the wires with electrical tape or some other simple solution. I do not have this issue with the driver side headlight and am being very careful as to not touch the bulb itself when replacing.
When the same bulb burns out often,it is usually vibration that does it.When driving at night is that headlight a steady light on the road or a shaky light?
Is that headlight assembly tightly mounted and the bulb secure in the housing?

Make sure the headlamp assembly does not have water in it.This will cause them to blow.If there is water in it you should replace it.Good luck.

I have run into a few of these and what I found was water getting into the wires that go to these headlights.The harness is just below the battery area.It will be easier to get to from the bottom of the vehicle.You will have to remove the plastic cover from the harness and the electrical tape.Find the dark blue and the orange wires.The dark blue is for the drivers side and the orange is for the passengers side.There should be 2 of each.Look real closely and see if you see a spot where the wires are slightly swelled up.These wires are only 18 gauge so it is not easy finding the bad spot.One thing you can try is pulling on the wires a little and sometimes they will separate where the bad spot is.Hope this helps.Good luck.
