View Full Version : Dome Light

06/07/2003, 08:08 AM
This may be a simpleton question but I replaced my interior dome light with a red bulb 3-4 months ago and it has already burned out - I think. Does anyone know if colored light bulbs are more prone to burning out that fast or do I need to be looking for some other electrical problem with the dome light?


PS - yes, I did a search but didn't find anything so sorry if I just missed a thread dealing with this already.

My guess is inferior quality.. a lot of the colored bulds are built cheap.

I noticed the same thing about colored bulbs... I put one in my friends Amigo (at her request) and it burned out within a couple months. Might be inferior quality, or it might be that the color bulbs could run hotter with the color coating (guessing that the color coating retains heat) and causing premature burn-out. I doubt its anything other in the electrical system though.
