Lights out

Hi All
We have a late 1997 EL Futura- great car except I am regularly changing blown tail light globes and intermitently changing the headlight globe (low beam). Not really a huge problem, except the other week I changed the drivers side head light, and just the other day changed both tail lights. THEN two days ago, the passenger side headlight blew.
I have checked the charging and there does not apear to be any problem; battery is less than 12 months old.
When driving around I noticed an interesting number of other EL's with one tail light blown. Is this a known problem and does anyone have any ideas as to what it could be? Otherwise car runs like a dream.

Re: Lights out

Are the fuses the right rating for the lights? Maybe it should be blowing a fuse instead.
