Question about Subaru Impreza
If you have a new light in it,disconnect the wire.I would inspect the wire as far back as you can starting at the light.Look for a nick or a fray,something that may be touching the metal on the car somewhere.If you do find a nick or fray,where wire shows,cover it preferably with electrical tape and turn on the light and wiggle it around in that spot.If you come across some probably black tubing without finding anything yet,plug the light in and turn it on and wiggle the wires at the light in all kinds of directions,circles,and see if it affects the light.You will not get electrocuted.It is the same DC that the battery works from and won't hurt you.If the light is still okay go back to the tubing in the middle top with as small of a pair of scissors you have.Toenail scissors are great for this.Cut the tubing back about a foot or what about 34 cm. and keep checking the wire.If you find a nick or fray,cover with electric tape,turn on the light and wiggle the wire there.When you are done,you can just cover the cut tubing with some duct tape,you only cut one side and you just need to prevent water entry.It doesn't need to be special,just cover the cut tube with about a half-width of a roll of duct tape.It doesn't need to go all the way around.Let me know if it works or not.Just reply to this and I will get an auto link.
Good luck! Greg

First check what has happened with the bulb, if it is black and blue when it blows then it is the bulbs that you have been using, if the filaments are broken then this is a problem with the base and the locking tabs which hold the bulb in place, as it will be shaking to much and this will be breaking the filaments in the bulbs.
Make sure that when the bulb is fitted that it is tight in the headlamp base and can't move.
Check this and let me know if you you more information.
