Head lamp keeps burning out. replaced head lamp at

Driver's side head lamp keeps burning out.I replaced head lamp at least 3 times in two months. There is some corosion at the site where the bulb should be inserted. This was cleaned out at the dealership, then the bulb was replaced. 4 days later, headlamp is out again. Could this be a short in the system or what do I do? I bought the 2006 Grand Vitara less than 7 months ago, & have had to replace driver's side head lamp 4 times & passenger light once.. This can't be normal.

You either have a bad ground or the bad electrical connection at the light socket is "simulating" a bad ground. This is putting a high resistance on the bulb and it's taking it's toll by burning out the bulb. I would start with a new socket, and CHECK the ground. If you still have the issue, I would run another complete ground wire and not even worry about checking the ground itself. the Stick

I have a 2000 volkswagon new beetle GE and the head lights keep going out every few months,I replaced the head light wiring harness for both the driver side and passenager side and that did not solve the...


I have a few beetle ( vw and audi too) customers who are regulars for headlamps.
I first had this problem on my 96 audi a4 and I came up with a simple solution
If you have fog lamps leave them on all the time. my headlamp failures went way down when I did that.

Try this if you have fog lamps, my customers did not have fog lamps so they could not try it.

Hope this helps, it it does please leave feedback and vote Thank You and Good Luck

How to change headlights


this is regarding low beam head lamps. i have a 2006 kia optima and to change the head lamp, there is a cap right behind the head lamp area that screws off. remove the connection to the head lamp. oncece the cap is unscrewed and the connection is removed, you will see a clamp that keeps the lamp bulb in place. save yourself the headache and do not unscrew this clamp as it is aggrivating to screw back into place....on the opposite side of the screw u can push on the clamp ( i think it is downward) and it will swivel one side away from the lamp bulb, just that side, while the screw side keeps the clamp in place. remove the bulb, place your new on into place (there are 3 notches on the metal part of the lamp bulb that sit into place. take a look and u will see how they need to sit.) replace the clamp, replace the connection and screw cap back on and you are finished. the first time took a minute to figure out, but once u do it, it only takes about 5 minutes to do after that first initial time.

I have a 2008 Ford Fusion and the passenger side head lamp will not come on. The fog lights and driver side head lamp works but the passenger side will not work on bright or on dim, what could this be?


Hi. Since the headlight on the driver side is working then we dont have any problem with the fuse or relay. Check the wiring and the socket of the passenger headlight if it is intact to the bulb. If it is intact, then this could be a headlight problem. Time to replace the passenger headlight.

The connector to the low beam head lamp keeps melting on my chev trailblazer . the light does not burn out and no other light on that side are affected. any thoughts?


YEP SOMETIMES THE BRASS CONNECTOR IS BAD IN THE LIGHT WHEN INSTALLING A NEW LIGHT MAKE SURE THAT THE CONNECTION IS GOOD AND TIGHT ALSO USE DIELECTRIC GREASE WHICH WILL HELP KEEP THE CONNECTION CLEAN

Coolant leak


i think you got a head gasket leak,,,if its buring coolant the only thing that will burn it is a leaking head gasket,,its probably leaking into the cylinder and burning it and leaking externally where you see coolant on the tranny,,,replace the head gasket,,,

Having problem replacing the driver side head light bulb.


Look for stainless steel clips above the lamp assembly in the support frame around the radiator and grill. Lift these clips straight up to allow the lamp to tilt forward letting you reach behind it to un-clip the pigtail and turn the retainer ring counter clockwise. Pull the bulb straight out the rear of the lamp assembly, keep bare fingers and dirt off the new bulb glass and reverse the order of dis-assembly.
