not to be much of a complainer, but today I changed another burnt out light in the rear of the car. this is my second one, with my first gen intrepid I canged 0. I would not really car if a headlight burnt out, would be a good excuse to get PIAAs.
I think it's time for all of us to call DC Customer Care and log complaints. Maybe DC'll put out a TSB for this incessant problem.
This is such a common occurance with 2nd gen 'treps that I swear it's gotta be the amount of juice going to them causing the problem, or a shitty bulb manufacturer. I'll take a DMM out next weekend and check the voltage and amperage.
I replaced the SAME bulb that burnt out three months ago AND a third-brake-light bulb today.
Wow, surprised to hear this problem. My '98 ES 3.2L has never had a bulb failure. Earlier this year I replaced all four headlight bulbs with Xenons, but that was just for fun. Plan to do the blue turn signals also since Dodge was kind enough to give us clear corners on our Intrepids.
I saw awhile ago on Radio Shack's website Replacement tail-light bulbs that were created from many Hi-intensity LED's. Used less energy and lasted some like.. 15 years of constant use or something like that. Was trying to find them, but I don't know what size bulbs the 'treps take. (also, I got a first gen, and I really have no problem with burning out taillights)
