hey guys, on new years eve, i noticed my el had blow a tail light, no worries i thought, went and got the loom from the ef fairmont in the padock, pluged it in and away she went all was fine and they all worked, they worked tonight when i was adjusting my head lights as low beam is sitting high and high beam is sitting low

my old man came down and had a look and we re adjusted them, then as i was going to get back in to go for a little drive down the road i noticed the same tail light had blown again, any idea what could be causing this?
