Default 2013 Grand Cherokee Day running lights

I keep burning out the passenger side day running light. Dealer says nothing wrong. I'm on bulb #4 in 9 months. Any idea on where to look for short?

Are you touching the bulb with your bare hands when installing it?

Busted's right. Just the shadow of a fingerprint on the glass will cause it to overheat and burn out.

Had this issue before in my jeep. Both answers above nailed it on the head. make sure you dont get ANY grease on the bulb. Use a tissue or clean towel.
