Default Headlight goes out

I have a 2009 pt cruiser. Replaced the headlights entirely around Christmas. I put new led bulbs in my low beams. They both worked fine for a while. However now the passenger one will go out after about 10 minutes. Could this be a fuse issue or the connector. I put in these bulbs: XKGLOW Single Beam 60W COB LED HB3/9005/9011

I would swap the right and left bulbs. Same problem? Try two standard bulbs.

Could be the tipm doesn't like one of both of those LEDs

This is a common problem on the second generation PT Cruisers with the TIPM. Several members have had to replace the TIPM to get the passenger low beam to work again. As Rob says check the bulb by switchig with the drivers side and make sure the new bulbs doesn't draw more current then the original ones.

Get a load resistor for each side. Had to do the same thing. Have had them in for 5 months now. Still going good.
