Question about 2007 Honda CR-V
I HAVE TO KEEP REPLACING THEM EVERY COUPLE OF MONTHS.
Took the dimmer switch out to check for problems. Quite easy to do, but as soon as I pulled the block connector out of the dimmer switch, I could see a small burn mark on the block connector!! And…the male pins that connect into the block connector were slightly corroded and had some burnt plastic between the pins.
Cleaning and scraping corrosion off of pins and connector solved the problem.
If you are having some low beam light issues, and are uncomfortable with these repairs, let your mechanic know to examine the block connector-to-dimmer switch connections for corrosion if all fuses and relays check out.
Unfortunately, the switch may not be the problem but the connection sure was! It pays to noodle around sometimes.
This also may be the root cause of excessive bulb failures. Our CR-V did not start blowing bulbs till this year, after 4 years of ownership. The dimmer switch is a low current switch that really just turns on the relays for the headlights. Increased resistance in the block connector and pins may have been the root cause all along.

The two things that would burn out the bulbs quickly are:
Excessive voltage- this would indicate a bad voltage regulator
Excessive heat- this would be caused by a small badly designed headlamp enclosure
You must have one of these problems also don't handle the glass on the replacement bulbs.
