Asked by Mar 12, 2011 at 10:36 AM about the 2001 Infiniti QX4

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a Ifiniti Q4, 2001. Anybody out there that can give me a clue as to why this suv keeps burning the fuse that goes with the headlight. When one of the headlights went out, I went to a gararge & had 2 of the headlights replaced because they claimed that it was better to replace both at the same time. About 10+ days later,  one of the headligts went out again. Went back to garage  that did the work & they said that one of the fuses was burned out. They replaced the fuse. The light went out again. This time when the tech puts in a fuse, it blows it out. They now claim that I now have an electrical problem that they can not find out why this is happening. The suggested to take to an electrical shop. Anybody out there with this problem, this lights arn't cheap, thanks for any help to solve this problem before having to go to an electrical shop as suggested.

@ Tonygjr: I had a similar problem with my 2003 G35. I had to replace my ballast. It controls the HID headlights. I got the part number from the dealer and went online and found one for under $200. I think the dealer wanted about $400 for it. It was about 2 or 3 years ago, so I can't remember the exact prices. A picture of a ballast is attached.
