Greetings and Welcome to Just answer.

Which bulbs in the vehicle is this, turn signal, brake?

Customer: replied 6 years ago.
left turn signal
Expert:  GM Tech (Cam) replied 6 years ago.
Ok, for the bulbs not to last suggests that the socket that the bulbs goes into may be damaged. Check for signs of damage to the connector, signs of overheating and use a touch of electronics grease in the connector to help. There should be no need to buy a special bulb.

tried all of above- will probably wind up taking to the shop- no signs of burn on connector, used bulb grease and still lasted only a day- sounds to me like a short somewhere in the electircal system thanks for your advise.

Very strange. The bulbs are usually not that sensetive.

My though would be a bad ground then for that light.

IF you don't mind, please let me know what the issue turned out to be.

took it into shop and it turned out to be a short in the bulb socket- had to replace the socket and then checked the wiring for any other problems -none others found

Thanks for getting back to me with that. I was sure it had to be a socket and even suggested that.
