low beam out

one of my low beams r out. I dunno if its from condensation or it just blew, they r MTECS. Since the low beams r behind the lens thingy im not sure if its the condensation that caused it. What do y guys think?

bulbs do not have a gauranteed life span. whether they are sylvanias, mtecs, or piaas. some people have blown mtecs in 3-6 months. while others have had theirs for 1-2 years. go figure. of course people who have theirs blown will post more threads. the people who are happy and have had theirs last years will think nothing of it.

I think that it is just a matter of luck when it comes down to bulbs. I know that I went cheap when I purchased my set of low beam bumbs (Silverstars) so if they blow, then my next step would be to get HIDs. I just keep a few spares around. Have 2 sets of stock Lows and 2 sets of stock Highs.

Loose connection. That's all I'm going to say (until I say something else).
