Question about 2007 Dodge Dakota Cab SLT
Left hand side headlight low beam keeps burning out ive replaced 3 of them in 7 years >
I had the same problem with 2 different vehicles. Kept burning out the replacement bulbs, and they never lasted very long. I was told that I should never touch the bulbs with my bare hands/fingers because it transferred oil onto the bulb which would in turn create a hot spot on the bulb and cause it to burn out. I tried changing the bulb while wearing hospital type thin latex gloves. I also made sure not to touch the bulb to anything else while guiding it into its proper position. I know it sounds silly, and it may just be a coincidence, but I have not had the problem since I started installing bulbs this way.

replace both headlight bulbs
each bulb has two filiments inside the bad bulb has a burned out filiment but, they should be replaced as a pair
and, do not touch the glass with your fingers
the oil from your fingers can cause the bulb to fail

disconnect the module that is mounted in front of the fuse box .Then carefully clean the the connectors ,they are usually pretty dirty.After they are clean put it back 2gether.If it doesnt solve the prob then u might have to stick some washers on your bottom screws so that your module is angled in.This will ensure a solid connection.
