Be sure that the lens and housing of the light are sealed completely as moisture is killer to a halogen bulb.

Put some waterproof electrical grease (you can get at auto zone) on end of bulb before you put in in! The reason bulbs are blowing, is they are getting wet!

Aztek 2001 headlights going out.

Headlights commonly only last a 350-400 hours. If you're not getting this, you might have a power problem OR are using lower quality bulbs.
I like to use Narva Artic Blues - they have a higher output and last longer. Also, most auto stores will provide a free replacement if they blow very quickly.
Check the fuse for your headlights - if it is incorrect change it and replace it with the correct fuse. Other than this, you may like to check the wiring - check all the connections are secure and that there are no shorts in the cable.
Hope this helps, Sherwin

How to replace blub in headlight

The entire headlight comes out from the exterior of the car. When you open your hood, there is a lever that you need to slide up. The light will then pop out and you will be able to replace the bulb and then pop the light back in. You will have to push hard inorder to get the lever to go back down. We had better luck with two of us doing it... one pushing... the other working the lever.

Both of my headlights burned out about the same time a year and a half ago. I then replaced a few months ago, now the other one blew. It seems that these two lights both burned out too soon. Possible...

I've got a 2001 Elantra that "eats" headlights. Within the last five years, I've probably replaced both headlights 10-15 times. Last time I bought bulbs, the clerk at the Auto Zone recommended coating the connection points of the bulbs in electrical grease (which is different than regular grease). It's usually sold in small foil packages at the check-outs. Anyway, this seemed to prolong the life of the bulbs by 3-4 times. It's a cheap fix that didn't completely solved the problem, but sure cut down on the number of bulb replacements.
