Bulb keeps burning out

In my 1995 Chevy the left rear turn indicator light / brake light bulb keeps burning out. I am on bulb # 3, when the first bulb was bad I swapped it out and the #2 bulb that only lasted two days. The #3 bulb is now out and it is day 3 of its life

Any suggestion ?

Thumbs up Re: Bulb keeps burning out

Take bulb out put you volt meter in the socket on volts and ground it. Turn the lights on see what kind of voltage your getting. Could have a voltage regulator stuck.

Get out and drive the truck this summer and have some fun!
It sucks not being able to hear!

LWB trucks rule, if you don't think so measure your SWB!
After talking to tech support at Air Lift I have found out that the kit I need is 60811. Per the measurements I gave them. Ride height of truck inside spring and inside diameter of springs.

Re: Bulb keeps burning out

Just a WAG but maybe the contact somewhere is loose and turning the light on and off frequently and making it fail.
