2013 XTS headlight problems and moisture

1229 Views 10 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Excalibur
I have a 2013 XTS and having issues with the headlights. First, water was getting in and I believe the moisture was taking the bulb out on one side. I finally replaced the bulbs and both were working. After about a week the right side bulb went out, nothing appears to be wrong with it. Now the left side went out and I can’t seem to find out why or what’s wrong. When I unlock the doors where they would jump on it doesn’t. I checked the fuses to see if they burned out but nothing. Does these car have a circuit breaker or some sort when charging the bulbs if they hit against something it knocks them out or could it be the wiring. Please help.

I agree with Excalibur especially if changing yourself wear nitrile gloves and don't touch bulb.
On my 13 XTS about two months ago pass side head light went out when disassembled to replace found bulb had broken into pieces inside housing fished everything out I could and replaced both sides have been working since but thought that was strange.
On wire coming of where bulbs aftermarket or GM?
