headlight problem

Just wondering if there is antone out there that can solve a problem for me . Ford Torus stationwagon, passenger headlight is compleatly incenegrating not sure why. It only lasts like a few days sometimes a few hours. Checked a bunch of fuses there good, just wondering if there was something else that i can do to stop this problem.

Re: headlight problem

Im not sure if I understand your question. Are you asking why your headlight goes bad soon after install? If you touch the bulb, the oil from your fingers will cause the bulb to overheat and go out pretty quick, Sometimes within a few hours. When changing bulbs make sure you dont touch the glass or let it contact anything, if it happens use a cotton ball and some alcohol and clean it.

Re: headlight problem

also if the voltage regulator is out on the alternator it will cause overcharging and that may blow the headlights. had this happen on two different trucks that were 2 different brands.

Re: headlight problem

Look at the connector and the wires. Might be a bad or burnt wire, especially the ground. You will need a new pigtale if either of these problems are there.
