Default Headlights keep going out on my 03 Acura RSX?

Dear Yahoo Answers,

So, my car has an itty bitty problem, and it really wouldn't be a problem if I just drove around during the day, but I'm a bit of a nightowl, so I have to deal with it.

My 03 Acura RSX keeps causing the front and passenger side headlights burn out. I really don't know what's causing it. I've replaced the bulbs a total of a 3 times per side. I've also replaced the fuses, one mechanic claimed the fuses were burnt, but I've had others that have argued with him on the fact, but they weren't there to see them changed out.

I want some good suggestions or ideas on what could be causing this. The mechanic that I'm taking it to, told me to look up some stuff online about it, but I've not really been able to find anything solid. So, I'm turning to yahoo for assistance. I hope someone can help!?

Thanks ya.

On some cars theres a rubber seal around the headlamps. If the seal isv dried or rotted it allows moisture to get inside the lense. A little moisture can cause the bulb to burn out! Condensation could be your problem?

Might be a short in the wiring, might be a faulty relay. Diagnose.

I had a 2002 RSX for over 10 years. Problem free car besides the headlights blowing out frequently as it got older. Cheap to replace the bulbs but an inconvenience of course. It would happen to both headlights and think it was caused by the moisture. I had never resealed the headlight covers. Ask your mechanic if could do that for you, if not, there could be a short in the wire.
