Headlight Bulb Keeps Burning Out

Q: What would cause my headlight bulb to blow out frequently?

A: Make sure the headlight lens does not have any cracks. If moisture is getting in it will burn out quicker. Also check to make sure the electrical socket is not corroded. If it is, use an electrical cleaner and then put a dab of dielectric grease in the socket. When installing the new bulb, do not touch the glass part. Oil from your hands may shorten the bulb’s life.
