I have a 2005 chevy duramax. The problem I'm having with it is that it's blowing the headlight and the fog light bulbs too fast.( at least once a month on the headlight and once every three months for the fog lights). A mechanic told me it sounds like that's from over charging, but when I took it to the shop to the alternator guy, he tested the alternator, and said the alternator was fine. I can feel the heat coming from the headlight from standing about one foot or more away from the headlight. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

are the plugs melted or tarnished? a bad connection can cause to much heat. But other than that, it's usually voltage (to much) that kills them.......or really cheap bulbs.

Check your connectors for moisture or tarnished. Clean them then put white Lithium or electric grease on the connectors and see if that helps.
