Question about 2006 Suzuki Grand Vitara
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
