Asked by Sep 08, 2008 at 09:49 AM about the 1998 Subaru Impreza 4 Dr L AWD Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Does anyone else have this problem? The Drivers side headligh ALWAYS seems to burn out before the passenger side EVEN when you replace both bulbs at the same time. I noticed a few Gc's in my area have this problem and was wondering if it might be a common issue?

the daytime running lights will burn out the lights faster than a car without them. Dou touch the bulbs with your bare fingers? If you do that will casue them to burn out faster.

no i don't touch bulbs with my bare fingers ( never have and have known not to do this since i was a kid) ..and mine doesn't have daytime running lamps either. In fact I don't think this year model came with running lamps at all.. Anyways, The problem is even using the lights like they should one side ALWAYS burns out before the other and i usually replace them both at the same time. Thanks for the reply tho

there may be some resistence in the bulb. that means that heat is building up. look at the conection and see if it is green or dirty. if it is then that is the problem
