Question about 2004 Kia Sorento
The head lamps go out every couple of months on my Kia Sorento. Mainly right front headlamp
Have your battery checked. A weak battery (Sorentos all have lousy stock batteries) may allow electrical spikes to blow lamps. Also make sure your battery cables are tight.
Note: The stock battery on 2003 and 2004 Sorentos V-6 models is a group 24. The group 34 battery is a better choice with more CCA and reserve capacity bit may require minor modifications to the battery tray or hold-down clamp.
Make sure you're using good quality headlamp bulbs. Auto-parts stores with lamps behind the counter are often higher quality than blister-pak lamps from Wally-World.

Always use a tissue to handle the bulb . something with the oils in the skin touching the bulb makes them go out frequently
