Headlight problems!
 
In the last two years I've had to replace my headlight bulbs 6 times!! The fogs twice!! It's not just one it's all of them, the left, then the right, then the left, then the fogs, etc etc... Is this normal?? I brought the best bulbs Advance Auto had! Why do my lights keep going out? Oh and my brake lights have been replaced once already too.. Is this common with jeeps? Does anyone else have this problem?

Oh, I drive a 05 WK V8...

Help please, even my lights in the climate controls have gone out once, the dealer replaced the whole unit. But now the others burned out too, one by one. The STEP button is out, and the SeatHeater button is out. :confused:

did you touch the glass on the bulb with your fingers when you installed them??

did you buy "ultra white" bulbs? if so that is very normal. they burn hotter and burn out really quick.

that is your problem, i used them in my WJ and got 6 months out of them and my brother had them in his corolla and got about 10 months. they are junk, go with either regular bulbs or consider an HID conversion.

Are there specific kits for WKs or are they all just plug and play? Do they have kits for the fog lights also? And last question which kit would you recommend for the factory HID brightness look or best road lighting in all weather. Sorry I wanted to send these questions to xenondepot but I don't have enough posts =(.

4300k for the brightest light 5000k for the best looking light. send xenondepot a pm for exact info.
