Typically the reason is too much load. You can measure it or pull some of the load items off the circuit. DO you have high performance headlights? One approach is to use a relay to power them. Then the load through the headlight switch only controls the relay, at negligible load..

High voltage or vibration will shorten headlight life.
Are you always using the same brand of headlights?
Maybe switching to another brand will extend the headlight life?

SOURCE: headlight bulb replacement for chevrolet 1500 1996

First open the hood, look which one side of your headlights that its not working, go at the back on it and you will see the wires connected on it with the round plastic, twist it and pull it out, then pull out the bulb and replace with a new one. ok

SOURCE: headlights keep burning out and voltage gauge is high on my 1985 chevrolet s-10 blazer 2.8 liter engine v-6

Sounds to me like if your voltage is high that your alt is going bad. Id check the batt with a meter while the car is running. If your alt is over charging then odds are then its going bad.

Have a 1993 chevrolet 1500 350v8 t.b.i. keeps backfiring through exhaust and muffler keeps exploding


For some reason, too much fuel is getting through your system. Some people refer to this as "running too rich". Burned valves, timing could be off, lots of things can cause this. It may be time to have your timing chain replaced.

My Friend has a 91 Chevy Silverado 1500 5.7 Liter 4x4, the dash lights and parking lights are out, the brake lights work. He has checked the fuses. What do you think it could be? Thanks


most likely have a bad headlight switch. It is possible for parts of the switch to burn out while the headlights continue to function. headlight switches are cheap at your local part store and pretty simple to install

Headlights not working on low beam, cant find fuse or relay


The headlights are on either a circuit breaker or a fusable link. If the high beams are working the circuit has power. Check for burned out filiments or dimmer switch/relay.
