What Is The Difference Between Bulb Types?

If one of your headlights is burnt out and it’s time for headlight bulb replacement, the variety of bulbs available at your local NAPA Auto Parts store might seem a little mind-boggling. The different types of bulbs that you can choose from are halogen, xenon high-intensity discharge (HID), and light-emitting diode (LED).

Using your old headlights as a guide, choose the type of bulb that will give you the brightness and pattern that you need.

The halogen headlight was first introduced to consumers in 1966 and replaced old-fashioned sealed beam lamps that were commonly used prior to the mid-1980s. Halogen bulbs provide brighter beams than their sealed beam predecessors because they use a gas such as iodine or bromine to create a more intense light source. This type of headlight has been installed by car manufacturers for years because it gives off adequate illumination while using less energy.

Halogen light bulbs can be found at any NAPA Auto Parts store and are a great choice if you want a brighter, whiter light for your headlights without going overboard on cost.

Xenon HID bulbs were introduced to the automotive industry in 1999 and have been dubbed “the future of automotive lighting,” but they come with a hefty price tag. Xenon HID lights give off three times more light than halogen headlight bulbs and last 40 percent longer because they do not use a heated filament that can burn up or break. The xenon gas within the bulb provides illumination similar to sunlight on a clear day, which allows drivers to see more detail at greater distances through their windshields. Xeons are available for any vehicle make or model and can be found at NAPA Auto Parts stores and other retailers nationwide.

Light-emitting diode (LED) headlights work like glowing light bulbs and are designed to mimic the style of halogen lights. This type of light can be found in flashlights and other devices that don’t require a high voltage, so they will use less electricity than halogen or xenon HID headlights. LEDs typically cost more than either halogens or xenons, but their long-term benefits make them a worthwhile investment for drivers who want to save on energy costs while getting factory-quality lighting results.

LED headlights can be purchased at NAPA Auto Parts stores and many other retailers throughout the country and come in several colors including blue, white, green, and smoke. Their vibrant colors add an eye-catching touch to any car, truck, or SUV. The installation process is very simple and can be performed at home using a wiring harness that is available from the retailer.

Why It Is Important To Change Your Headlights More Often

Many drivers will only replace a bulb that has completely failed, but for maximum driving safety, an aging bulb should be replaced before it burns out. The filament of any halogen headlight bulb ages with use, time, and exposure to the elements. As a result, the bulb’s light output deteriorates. At the end of their typical service life, headlight bulbs project less light, and that reduces the driver’s nighttime visibility.

For example, a new headlight bulb that can typically project a 240-foot beam will only be able to deliver a 160-foot beam after three years. That’s potentially a whopping 33% percent less light and a critical safety concern.

All modern cars are equipped with two headlamps, one on each side of the vehicle. Both lamps include a lens and reflector system that reflects the light from the bulb to produce an even beam pattern in front of your car. Even when dim, all headlights provide some illumination for the driver in front of and slightly to each side in order and up and down as well — just not much — but enough at least for you to react to danger.

Why Headlight Bulbs Fail

Over time, exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light breaks down the white-colored protective quartz glass cover on halogen bulbs reducing their intensity by dissipating energy before it reaches the filament. Quartz transmits visible light while blocking UV rays, so if UV light is present, then quartz will gradually disintegrate. Halogen bulbs are filled with halogen gases that do not escape because the bulbs are vacuum-sealed to prevent oxidation of the filament and deterioration of the bulb’s thermal shock resistance. The gasses help conduct heat away from it so they don’t crack or melt in order to prolong burn life. But this gas does act as an insulator causing slower cooling resulting in red hot spots on the filament surface within the bulb when operating at high temperatures which shorten its lifespan or cause it to fail prematurely.

If exposed to excessive cold, a bright white light will appear yellowish in color, sometimes flickering (called “flashing” by some people). This is due to the condensation of moisture between the bulb and the quartz cover. The moisture freezes as a thin layer of ice on the bulb’s surface, forming filaments of water crystals that glow as they melt back into liquid form. A small amount of frost buildup on your headlight bulbs is normal if your car is parked outside in cold weather. Just wipe it away before you start driving — remember to wear gloves!

There’s more than meets the eye with headlights, and that includes all modern HID headlights (High-Intensity Discharge) and LED (Light-Emitting Diode) lights as well.

If your high beam light fails even though both low beams still work, it can be due to a faulty relay called an electronic flasher unit mounted under the dashboard behind the steering column. The flasher unit does not pass enough power to light up the HID or LED lights, even though they are on. Look for relay #1 near relay #8 by the spare tire compartment on some cars, depending on year make, and model. Other cars have both relays under the hood in the fuse box.

If you look at your owner’s manual you’ll find the correct replacement bulb part numbers for your vehicle, including HIDs if applicable. Read about these special bulbs online by searching “HID headlight bulb” or “LED headlight bulb”.

Another common failure is due to poor installation that results in a loose connection or pinched wire which eventually opens up. If you have substandard lighting after new headlights are installed, check the wiring.

Headlight restoration kits are designed to remove films that have built up on headlamps over time, providing a brighter light while improving visibility by removing distracting yellow-green stains caused by oxidation of internal surfaces. These films can be caused by age, weathering, airborne pollution, or even road film due to salt being sprayed onto roads during winter months. They do work but it’s not adequate for use after night falls because they’re too bright and glare back at oncoming traffic.

Bulb Replacement

if you just plot a jeep renegade chances are you drove it home the first night and said I love this thing but the lights are dim in this video I’m gonna show you guys how you can triple your headlight output and maintain the tight factory beam pattern so you’re not blinding oncoming traffic so let’s head to the garage and get started the first step popping the hood I’m just going to set these here, for now, modern vehicles today normally you’re pulling a bumper you’re yanking a grill at the very least maybe you’re pulling a battery or removing an airbox this thing is a welcome surprise we’ve got a dust cover to remove and the bulb is accessible

right behind the headlight, nothing to it reminds me of the good old days turn the bulb counterclockwise pull out just like that press down a little tab for the wire harness and it disconnects just like so now we got a combination of things we’re gonna be installing today in my right hand is love v4 bulbs we just got done doing a massive 7 inch round headlight shootout and this thing still even though it’s a little bit different than what you’d normally see on a Jeep Wrangler this thing is still a 7 inch round headlight and this was one of the top contenders for bulb replacements overall so we’re gonna be doing the v4 is in it and we also need a little help from GTR

lighting to get this thing to work properly these jeeps are pretty modern with the way that they handle their electrical circuits they’ve got a can-bus system and it actually pulses the headlight and if you just put any old headlight from Amazon or eBay in there a $30 headlight you’re gonna get flickering strobing and a warning light in the dash and you don’t want any of that this little module prevents all of that from happening so here’s a little before-and-after for you guys here in my left hand is the stock h13 bulb that you’re gonna find in your Jeep and in my right hand’s v4 bulb as you can see this is very very different techniques when you finally start working on this Jeep you’re gonna find that in the gt-r
