Why do my headlight burns out often


My personal experience the headlights burn out frequently because it's a Hyundai. I have a 2005 Elantra (105K) and a 2007 Santa Fe (135K), and I have replaced headlights in both of those cars more than all of the 20+ other cars I have owned in my lifetime. I never touch a new bulb when replacing them, the sockets are all fine, they're just Hyundais and electric/wiring reliability is not in their capabilities. I keep a spare set of headlights in each of the cars. It's so bad that the cashier at the parts store asked me about 5 years ago if I had a Hyundai. She had the same problem with her Elantra.

I have a 1999 hyundai accent and the headlights keep blowing


I have a couple of suggestions for things you can try. I'd start by measuring the battery voltage while the car is running. It should measure somewhere in the range of 13 to 14.5 volts. If the voltage is higher than that you may have a bad voltage regulator and this may cause your headlights to burn out faster. A bad voltage regulator can also cause your battery to overheat and boil off a lot of the battery fluid. Take a look at the fluid level in the battery. It should be slightly higher than the vertical plates (fins) inside the battery. If the level is low add some distilled water to bring the level back up. Make sure to check all 6 cells. I'd also check to make sure the headlight casings are mounted securely. If they're loose, the extra giggling of the light bulbs may cause them to burn out faster. I'd also check your headlight cases for moisture. Sometimes a crack in the casing will allow some water to enter. This moisture can reduce the lifetime of the bulbs. When you change your headlights be careful not to touch the glass part of the bulb with your fingers. The oil from your fingers can reduce the lifetime of the bulbs. The last two things I'd check are your shock absorbers and tires. If the shocks are bad or if you've developed some flat spots on the tires the car may experience excessive vibration while you driving. This vibration could reduce the lifetime of the bulbs. I hope this advice helps you out.

My malibu landscape 300w transformer does not want to come on


Check that power pack is getting electricity.
Power pack should make a small humming sound when on.
Scratch a wire across both terminal screws and see if there is spark.
If a bulb burns out, and is not replaced, additional voltage can burn out other bulbs.
Power pack should be unplugged if bulbs are not burning since that can burn out power pack.
Change out a couple bulbs and then plug-in power pack.
Check connections where lights tie into wire.

My power pack was doing same thing, I bought another power pack from Home Depot to check my lights. All but 2 bulbs were burned out. I replaced bulbs and returned new power pack.. and then power pack quit for good a month later.

I found tips to preserve power packs:
1) Match wattage of bulbs with wattage of power pack
-15 each X 20 watt bulbs = 300 watts, so install 300Watt power pack
2) Installing a 500W power pack on 300W of bulbs will burn out bulbs and power pack.
3) Replace bulbs as soon as they burn out or other bulbs will burn out and power pack will burn out.
4) When working on bulbs, unplug power pack or it may burn out.

Bulb failure, position light


Bulb failure, position light means you have a burned out light bulb somewhere. I had the same problem on my 2002 s60. It looked like all the lights were working but I found out that there are several bulbs in the tail lights, so even though the tail lights were working there was in fact a burned out bulb. Look at the bulbs a bit closer and you will probably find one thats bad.

Light bulbs burn out constantly on Chamberlain garage door opener


Get an electrician to measure voltage where the light is plugged in. It sounds like you have too high a voltage.

Right passenger brake light doesn't work but parking light and turn signal does. Is the bulb bad?


Most likely yes, most bulbs that are used for both the brake light and turn light have 2 separate filaments in them basically making 2 bulbs into one, to which frequently one of those filaments will burn out but the other will still work. The replacement bulb type will be in your owners manual, or you could just take out the bulb and read the number off of it.

40 watt night light bulbs constantly burn out short out.


Is they are left on all the time, this can reduce their life, and they are more susceptible to vibration.

Have you checked at home center or home improvement centers like Lowe's, Builder's Square or Home Depot?

You can order quality parts such as lamps by entering your full model number or part number WB36X10003 here.

Always be sure the microwave is unplugged or the breaker is off when installing or removing bulbs, and be sure the bulbs and and your hands are clean when installing them.

Blub out again


Hi there

Keep in mind that this is only a estimate - not true hours at all.

Does your Projector go in for a service every 3 months ?

If I were you I would take back the Projector to the dealer you purchased it from and ask them to test your Ballast ( lamp's powersupply)

Did they tell you to run in your new lamp for 12 hours straight ?
