Is the bulb connector melted? Its the plastic piece that the bulb plugs into. You can get a new one from your Mazda dealer for about $20. I've seen quite a few bulb connectors go bad and short out the bulbs. Especially when people run mp3 players and phone chargers all the time.

Passenger headlight bulb keeps dying after only few months, no issues with driver side


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?

Passenger headlight has a shortage in the wire. How do I know? The light bulb is not blown per auto mechanic, AutoZone, and by looking at the bulb myself; when I move the wire to the headlight the light...


You can fix it yourself you just need to find out where the shortage is. If its up close to the bulb then its not a big deal to change. Just go to an auto parts store and get a new headlight pigtail for it then splice it in. If its further up the harness it can be a little bit more difficult.

Sounds to me like you need to reset the headlight housings... maybe they are vibrating very badly. ... OR, easy fix, get NEW headlight housings on EBay and install.

The passenger headlight keeps going out!


My guess is the seal is allowing mosture to get in and short it out. Check the seal where you insert the bulb. Also applying dieletic grease to the connections sometimes keeps the mosture from causing a short.

When low beam headlight is on passenger sign is


Try this to eliminate new bulbs for both sides:
With a partner behind the wheel:
PULL out the bulbs one at a time. Keep them plugged in. While you are holding the bulb - have your partner click and HOLD the High Beam Selection. This causes the Low Beam and High Beam filaments to both go on and stay on.
Check both sides this way.
While the bulbs are out, look at the filaments that did not illuminate. Are they broken, bent, or have indications they are burnt out?
You can also change to bulbs (left to right, right to left) and recheck using the above method of holding the high beam selector and checking the filaments.

Driver-side headlight bulb burns out every four months or so. Passenger side is fine - same bulb for a few years now.


Hi:
four months is way too soon, so you need to look things over a little closer. The entire headlight assembly could be slightly loose, and vibrating on bumps and causing the bulb to die. Next time you put a new bulb in, buy and use some dielectric grease on the contacts of the new bulb, to keep moisture out, and examine the harness plug for signs of dust, dirt or corrosion. since it takes four months to fail, it has to be a minor thing.
