So I start the 2002 Forester these past few days and notice the drivers side headlight is burnt out, I don't pay much more attention to it and decide to get another one. As I'm driving I pull up behind a truck at the stop light and notice in the reflection my headlight is now working! I stop the car and head in the house, take off again and the headlight is out again?!?! I sit there watching it and dimly begins to come alive and then is on perfectly... somehow the light needs to warm up or something before it will light up?! Has anyone encountered this problem any clues because I need to be clue'd in! By the way these are brand new bulbs that were installed 3 months ago... any advice would be appreciated. Thanks Guys and Gals.
