    I have a 2014 Tundra and the passenger side turn signal burned out so I replaced it and it immediately burned out again. Where should I start looking to find the problem? Thanks

    Typically, bulbs that burn out often, point to an alternator problem or an intermittent short. Does seem kind of odd though that it only happens to one particular bulb location. Speaking of coinkydinks, I'd replace that bulb one more time just for S's & G's.

    Visually track the wires back from the turn signal bulb and look for any obviously frayed or exposed wires.

    Beyond that, I'd start looking at my nearest dealer. Still under warranty, and you don't want to go messin' with 'lectrical, if you don't know what you're doing.

    Thanks, I will start with the dealership . I wish I was still in warranty but have 65,000 on the truck.

    Yeah, sounds like a short in the socket or wiring somewhere. Some folks have these issues with a rogue rodent doing a little gnawing action on wiring....hope it is easy to find.

    It was a bulb socket.
