Auxbeam led bulbs burning out

Wear gloves when changing the bulbs. Your body oils will cause the bulbs to burn extremely hot and burn out. Check your tail lights. Some vehicle's interior light goes out of stays on when your tail lights malfunction.

Where is turn signal relay on 2002 pontiac bonneville ssei located? Left turn signal flashes rapidly at times

That's not the relay. That's a bulb losing connection. I have a grand am that does the dame thing. One of my left rear turn signal bulbs has a corroded socket. Bet you have a similar issue

Turn signal lights flashing to quickly

Sounds more like a bad bulb socket. The bulbs provide a load which causes them to blink slowly. If just one bulb becomes disconnected the load changes and so does the flash rate. I would suspect that you have a bulb that is coming loose in the socket periodically thereby changing the load. Many vehicles us multiple bulbs in the rear...ex. my 04 grand am does the exact same thing. It uses 2 bulbs per tail light. One of the bulb sockets on the drivers side sometimes loses connection and they flash really fast (the other bulb flashes...just 1 of the two quits). In my car i need to replace the tail light assembly.

Why is brake lamp failing repeatedly?

What is year--make--model?
Did you check bulb filament to see if broken? Maybe your just losing voltage or ground intermittently? Maybe bulb isn't making good connection in the socket?

Hi the back light on my focus wont come on just on side other side great its a hatchback tried the bulb but still wont work the brake light on it works fine its a focus 1.6 2001 thanks

Try to check the return cable, connected to the frame of the car. When it is lose or oxidised, the bulb won't work. When you have a multi meter you also can check if there is coming 12 volt to the bulb (on the cable) to exclude other parts. Keep the black probe from the meter to a blank part of the car.
