I have had to replace both headlights within the last year or so. Now one has blown again. It does not work on either low or high beam. One of the smaller lights next to the headlights is also out. What could be causing this?

    'IF' the bulb is the problem again, try wearing gloves the next time you touch a NEW bulb! Or try not to touch the globe with bare skin. Actually this is good practice when handling any light bulb. (Fact: bare skin contains oils that will cause hot spots on the globe and shorten bulb life)!!!
    Now, this can be an open (blown) fuse! Refer to your owners manual for exact fuse location/function.
