2013 Kia Rio LX - Front Left Turn Signal burn-out every 2-3months- change to LED bulb

Left Turn Signal burn-out / replaced in 2020 December, then replace again in May 2021 - now it's burn-out again
Why?
Maybe cheaper to replace with LED version, than trying to figure out why!:sneaky:
i read somewhere in Google about Grounding problem and LED version can handle this

Will the car starts complaining about the LED bulb - like error codes:cautious:
I can live with faster flashing rate:rolleyes:

can someone please provide me the link to the correct LED bulb that will fit

Probably corrosion on the bulb contacts in the housing. Take a file or sandpaper and clean them off.
Also make sure there's no condensation in the housing.
If the women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy.

Unfortunately, access to the turn signal is not easily accessible
i'm thinking of buying LED bulb and asking Canadian Tire to install it for me (for a fee of-coarse)

Good luck driving out of Canadian Tire without them finding/causing more problems.
It's actually not that hard if it's the rear. The front are a bit more work, but still not too hard.
If you really don't want to DIY, go to a KIA dealer.
And the solution isn't an LED, it's to clean the contacts.

Throw a lid resistor in with the LED bulbs.
