Are you touching the glass of of the bulbs during install? That's the most common issue, you CANNOT TOUCH the glass at all with your hands, best not to let them touch anything if possible.

Beyond that you have a wiring issue between the bulbs and the fuse panel. Either a short, bad connection, bad ground.

One thing to try (aside from Tigris' suggestions) is to replace BOTH bulbs at the same time. Often, when one halogen bulb fails, the surge will blow the other side.

Search for Osram bulbs, they were high-quality. Some other widely-available brands were prone to failure.

Also, battery condition could be a factor. If your battery is old, replacing it might reduce the failures.
