Why would your right rear turn signal burn a bulb out in 20 mins?

sounds like you've got either a bad ground, a grounded hot wire or maybe just a bad bulb. Try another, then if that blows, check the voltage going to the bulb. Also, check for frayed or damaged wires.

A signal that is blinking fast usually indicates a bad bulb or bad flasher. Check to insure all of the bulbs burn, then check the flasher.

because the oxygen in air would burn causing the light bulb to burn out very quickly.

The filament (assuming an incandescent bulb) would burn up very quickly.

If you added more batteries in parallel, then the bulb would shine for a long time. If you added more batteries in series, then the bulb would burn very brightly for a short time and then 'burn out'.

If a light bulb is handled roughly before it was installed, the filament holder could have been weakened. Another reason that bulbs burn out before their time is that they are being submitted to a higher voltage than the bulb rated for.

If you added the batteries in parallel, then the bulb would stay on for a long time and nobody would get any sleep. If you added the batteries in series, then the voltage across the bulb would eventually become excessive and the bulb would burn out.

Be careful not to handle the bulb with your bare hands. The grease from your fingers will effect the life span of the bulb.

Yes. A light bulb will burn brighter if you increase the current. Most especially if you increase the current that is flowing through the light bulb.

It means that it is getting ready to burn out...just replace the bulb and it should stop. Either the front or rear turn light is no longer working. Change it out with a new one

If air were used in an electric bulb the filament, which becomes extremely hot when the light is on, would rapidly oxidize and burn out in seconds. Instead the bulb is filled with argon, which is inert.

By bulb, it is assumed a light bulb is intended rather than a flower bulb or any other kind of bulb. Light bulbs burn out because they are engineered to do so. There would be less profit to the bulb manufacturer if he made bulbs to last longer, which he could if he wanted to. In the early days of bulb manufacture, a bulb was made which still continues to burn over 110 years later. See the link below for more information on the 110 year bulb.

simple, there is an access panel in the front wheel wells of the BMW 328i.just take the access panel off. there's a tab that you have to twist to get the bulb off. there are no wires coming from the bulb, just the tab that needs to be turned. avoid touching the new bulb with your fingers as they contain oil, which will cause the bulb to burn out prematurely.:-)

Because if the thin filament wire was heated in regular air it would burn up.

A fast flashing turn signal, on most any vehicle, is an indicator that a turn signal bulb is going out or has gone out on that side(i.e. front turn signal on passenger side flashing fast, check the rear turn signal bulb on passenger side.) This will cause the light on your dash board to flash fast as well. This is generaly a good time to replace all of the bulbs, turn signal, running lights, and break lights, as they are so cheap. Also check deck light or top break light if applicable for burn outs.

A 13.5 volt bulb will burn less brightly but last longer.

No. Not normal air. The oxygen in air would cause any light bulb to burn out in seconds. In stead, and inert gas called argon is used.

User Avatar

Yes, the inside of a light bulb is vaccum sealed to increase the lifespan and brightness of the bulb. If there was air in there, the filiment would burn up and not last very long. This was an important discovery made by Thomas Edison when he invented the light bulb.

A light bulb is dangerous because if leave it on too long it will burn.

User Avatar

it all depends on what the bulb is rated for4 extra volts on a 120 volt bulb is negligable4 extra volts on a 1 volt bulb will definitely pop the element, but I don't think it would explodeAnswerDepends on the bulb voltage, but it shouldn't explode. If it's a 6volt bulb or lower, it would burn out quickly.If it's a 12volt bulb or higher, it may have a shorter life, but it would be brighter.

User Avatar

There is no oxygen.If the lightbulb had any oxygen,it would just burn up.But there isn't any,so the wire just goes super hot and glows.

Takes 300 hours for the average light bulb to burn out
