I just started my car and the headlights came on for a few seconds and went out again. I could see both were on in the reflection from my living room window. Main beam and side lights ok,just the two headlights out.

Assumed it was a fuse, but tried the simple things first and replaced with a spare, and it came on fine. Just been to a garage to buy another and both are now on fine.

So, just one of those things that both blew at the same time, or sign of something else possibly wrong?

They were only about 4 months old too, bought from halfords in November and fitted as a pair so should have lasted a bit longer!

it's happened to me before on a cold morning, replaced both the bulbs and neither of them and blown since, likely just be one of them things that happen once in a blue moon.

Been 2 months and it hasn't happened again so hopefully just a one off.

To be honest, when I put those in I completely ignored the warnings about not touching the bulb glass with your fingers. I've since read this is a big no no, even a tiny fingerprint can cause the bulbs to go bang really quickly - and they tend to surge and take the other one out too, which is probably what happened.
