When was the last time you checked your lights?

Tail Lights - Auto Parts CornerYour vehicle’s lighting system involves several different systems integrated together: Headlights (high and low beams), fog lights (optional), parking, tail and marker lights, instrumentation lighting, turn signals, emergency flashers, stoplights, backup lights and interior lights.

Here are some maintenance tips and suggestions from the Car Care Council you can follow to ensure the best performance from your vehicle’s lighting system:

  • During normal driving, you may not notice a light that isn’t working. That’s why it’s best to have your car’s lights inspected at every oil change.
  • Most often, the cause of a faulty light is a bad bulb. If a whole portion of the lighting circuit doesn’t work, such as the taillights, check the fuses.
  • Refer to your car’s owner’s manual for recommended bulb and fuse types, their locations and for information on how to change them.
  • Most bulbs and fuses on today’s cars are easy to change. If you’re changing a halogen headlight bulb, do not touch the bulb with your bare hands. Oil from your skin can cause the bulb to fail prematurely.
  • A turn signal that flashes in one direction, but not in the other direction, usually means there’s a bad bulb on the side that does not flash.
  • If the bulbs and fuses seem OK, but the lighting problem persists, have the lighting system looked at by a qualified service professional.
