Ended up researching OEM Phillips bulb on-line and bought two of them for less than $100. Watched a couple youtube videos on replacing the bulbs focusing on removing the air cleaner (passenger side) and wiper fluid neck extension (drivers side) to gain best access to the bulbs. Turned out to be a real simple procedure. Took less than 40 minutes to do both bulbs start to finish. Been working fine for over a month now. Did have a warning light come on afterward indicating bad 02 sensor. Checked connections at air filter and light cleared (again, with help from posts on this web site). Real happy with the result given dealer estimate for changing just one bulb with no diagnosis or assurance that it was just the bulb. This web site is invaluable. Not much of a "car aficionado" but am a nuts/bolts capable person. Also used web site to research tire replacement for my Michelins and ended up getting set of Continental Extreme Contact DWS. Good tire, good price, run great. Again, very happy.

yes do not cheap on the bulbs as it will tend to do the same issue.

I just replaced mine. It was doing the same thing. I bought some from IDJMtoy.com and my driver's side still did it. Several guys on here told me it was cheap bulbs. And to get GARAX bulbs on eBay. They were like $80 for 2. Had them in for 3 days now and neither side have gone out yet.
I have a similar issue... but its on the lexus IS 350.. But I replaced the light bulbs at first and the drivers side still goes out after a while of running.. sometimes after 5 minutes. I ended up replacing the ballast on it and It still did the same thing... I ended up switching the bulbs from left to right and it seemed to work for about a week. Than started doing the same thing.. I wonder if it is the type of bulbs I bought offline?? anyone have any thoughts.. I am not taking it to a dealer I refuse to pay them for this crap.
Well, after reading about 4,000,000 post about this I am still having the same issue.
The drivers side went out so I switched to passenger and followed bulb and nothing happened. So, I switched BOTH bulbs with OEM brand new bulbs and NOW the passenger side is going out. So, at first it was drivers side, now its passenger side with brand new bulbs. Anyone know whats wrong?
