    If you touch the bulb with your fingers you will put oil on the bulb and will cause it to burn out quickly... Don't touch the bulb only the plastic and check the relays and fuses...

    Good news. Hopefully the case is closed. After reading all the threads, I was thinking this sounds like some sort of electrical gremlin.

    I was told by the light bulb people that because of the constant stress and the delicate desig of the bulb they tend to go out, who knows but thats what they said

    i could understand the bulb dying out on occassion. but my, and apparently his, shared problem is that is an ongoing problem. my problem seems to have gone since i had a new one installed. i had replaced the bulb several times within the past months. on average, i'd say twice a month, which is way far from the norm. i suppose i had a short. you may as well.

    mine do the same thing, not as often but probably 4-5 times a year, no one ever found a problem and the only explanation that was offered is delicate bulbs. every time i replace one it costs me AT LEAST $20 and it really pisses me off

    I'm bringing this thread back from the dead with a follow-up question...

    Do you think a grouding kit would help this issue? Or should I just go in there and check the wiring and make sure its all hooked up good?

    Yeah, I am having the same problem with my 02. and I've got the $$$ silverstar bulbs in my fogs...

    Your post count does not equal your intelligence. I don't care how many times you replied with "tacos rule"

    check the wiring and make sure everything is in place and in working order. look for the obvious reasons such as frayed, split wires etc. if you cant find anything, a grounding kit helpful, but i dont think it will be necessary.
