Make sure that you don't touch the bulbs with your fingers when installing them. This cause premature failure.

If the glass of the bulb was touched by your fingers,it would cause this,also,it may just have been a defective part.

Both Headlights are not working, just changed them a couple months ago, what could be the problem?


Because you have given absolutely no details I am forced to guess as to your situation. The big factors are, what type of bulb did you get, how often do drive and is your car new enough that the lights come on even during the day?
Super bright bulbs are nice but they tend to burn out faster than normal bulbs. They claim to be good for about a year. How Long Should Car Light Bulbs Last But for some reason, a lot of companies consider that the average car only gets used for 12,000 km per year. if you drive double that, your headlights may only last half as long. Is you headlights on all the time or do you do a lot of night driving, it all affects how long the lights last.

Lowbeam headlights bulbs went out on my 2004 ford expedition


It's most likely shorting out because of a water issue caused by a crack or something abnormal in the headlight case. Have the fuses been blown at all? If so, then there could be a short to ground causing them to blow fast. Gotta do some digging on your end to figure out if there are bad wires or cracks letting moisture in

How do I diagnose why one of my headlights will not work?


the h 7 bulb is a quartz halogen bulb and if touched with the bare fingers has an extremely short life
you have to use gloves when handling the bulbs as the oil from the fingers reacts with the glass when in use and blows the bulbs
they will also blow from bad/ loose ground points and if allowed to arc ( as in welding ) will fail quickly
you should get 12 volts to both bulbs at one terminal while the other is the grounding wire
check for problem relays in the power wire

How do I change the headlight bulb on a Porsche Boxster S?


You remove the headlight assembly from the inside of the front trunk. Remove the carpet to gain access, use a screwdriver to unlock the headlight assembly. It will pull out and you can change the bulb.

Headlight went out in 2003 ford escape i have


you have to remove the whole headlight assembly, then pop off the front cover pull the old bulb out and put the new one in. reverse the process to re-install. there is a small plastic tab on the topfront of the headlight assembly, that is what you need to release to get the clear cover off and get inside.

Headlight Issue


No, you just might have to take out the battery. I was able to do it without taking the battery out, but only because I was being stubborn. There is one thing I definitely have to say is that you should change both headlights at the same time. My driver side headlight was the first one to go and I didn't listen and just changed that one, days later my passenger side one went out!
