For some mysterious reason, many vehicle owners don’t give a second thought to the health of their headlights until it’s too late. Maybe they find themselves on a long trip and suddenly discover that their headlights have gone black, or venture to the store one evening only to be stopped by a friendly police officer who says, “Did you know you have a headlight out?” 

What should every driver and vehicle owner know about basic headlight health, maintenance, and replacement? First, if your headlights go out completely or simply dim to a weaker beam strength, you’ll be in danger on dark roads. That’s because others won’t see you and you won’t be able to see them or the road very well. Of course, driving with no headlights is illegal in most places. But even if you’re not stopped by the police, your ability to see and be seen is at risk.

Second, neglecting to replace headlight bulbs when they burn out can lead to similar darkness that might result in an accident or at least a traffic stop due to having inadequate illumination for safe night-time driving.

So how do you know when it’s time for new headlights? That depends on several factors: where you live (which affects how often your lights are exposed to extreme cold or heat), how much you drive (the more, the faster they wear), whether your headlights are High-Intensity Discharge (HID) units (they tend to burn out sooner), and whether you have a newer vehicle (lately, headlights seem to go out earlier than they used to.)

Replacing headlight bulbs isn’t as simple as it once was. Now there are halogen, HID, or LED lights that require special tools and training to replace. If all this sounds daunting, then it makes sense to look into the cost of installing new ones. Replacing headlights can be expensive work for a dealership or mechanic – often $75-$150 per light – so think about how much you would pay if both your lights suddenly burned out and you had no way to fix them yourself. Even if only one side fails and the other is perfectly fine, keep in mind that replacing one bulb now will save you the trouble of replacing both later.

In addition to being a safety risk, driving with a burned-out headlight is against the law in most places. If you’re unsure, check your local or state motor vehicle codes for information on headlight standards. In most places, you’ll need more than 1/4 candlepower – a measure of how much light is emitted – on a high beam and at least 3/4 candlepower on a low beam. You’ll also want a clean lens since a dirty one can reduce the effective light emitted by 35%. And finally, be sure that your lights are properly aimed so they shine far enough ahead to illuminate the road but not into anyone else’s eyes.

Today we have this 2015 Toyota Camry and in this video I’ll show you how to take care of your headlight bulbs if they are out or you need to replace them so first thing we’re gonna do we’re gonna pop the hood find the latch raise it up and could you stay up here we have vol beam high beam and turn signal so if you want to change your low beam this is going to be the passenger side so what we’re gonna do we just take the bulb spin it pull it out we have to remove the bulb from the connector do it this way hope you guys can see over there we just press this middle piece and poke the Bob off go to the parts store get the replacement bulb or you can just drive to the parts store do it outside as you can see it’s very simple and durable get the new Bob connected in to it clicks put it bacon side find the correct position spin it till it clicks and you all set that’s it same thing is right here and the turn signal problems taking is right there behind it it’s gonna be the same exact procedure procedure is here but…

Choosing The Best Type Of Headlight That Will Fit Your Vehicle

The basic rule of choosing headlight bulbs includes knowing the three basic types of bulbs and understanding which one is best suited for your particular vehicle. Note that every car comes with its own kind of headlamp. There are three basic types: Xenon/HID, halogen, and LED. The vast majority of vehicles arrive in the showroom with halogen lights, while many high-end, newer cars have LED lights. Some cars have xenon/HID lights, which are generally reserved for luxury and sports car models.

Headlight brightness is measured in ‘lumens.’ The higher the lumen rating, the brighter and further reaching the light will be. When it comes to shining a light beam that reaches out into the darkness, halogen bulbs remain king. Xenon/HID headlights are bright but tend to fall short of their halogen counterparts when it comes to having long-distance beams. LED lights are becoming more popular due to their compact nature, affordability, low power consumption rate, and durability. They’re also known for possessing some of the brightest lighting levels around while remaining almost shockproof. LED headlight bulbs to tend to last longer than both halogen and xenon/HID bulbs.

The type of headlight bulbs you choose will depend upon your intended use. If you’re driving on back roads, using low beam headlights is recommended for safety purposes. Low beams are brighter than high beams, though they do not help illuminate the entire roadway in front of your vehicle or provide as much distance between your car and that of the driver ahead of you. High beams are used for traveling long distances on interstates where there aren’t any vehicles ahead of yours. These types of lights are able to reach out further down the road due to their higher lumen levels. However, drivers with high beam headlights may experience temporary blindness when another car approaches them from behind with its brights on.

Some vehicles come equipped with HID lights, which are extremely bright and able to travel long distances due to their higher lumen levels. These types of headlights can blow out a car’s bulbs if they’re not shielded correctly. LED lights only blow the bulbs in incandescent-based vehicles rather than those used for all but high-end models. If your vehicle is equipped with LEDs, you’ll need to ensure the correct type of light protection is installed prior to using them at night or on dark highways as they produce more lumens than halogen or xenon/HID bulbs do. This makes it easier for other drivers on the road to spot your vehicle from further away – especially those with HIDs – so you shouldn’t have a problem with oncoming traffic.

Traffic lights can be found in most major cities and towns, but these kinds of street lights have been known to malfunction at times. This creates a threatening situation for motorists who are unfamiliar with the area or traveling during off-peak hours when it’s dark outside. If your car is equipped with HID or LED headlights, you’ll be able to see better than if you were driving with halogen bulbs during such instances where the traffic light goes out due to an outage or something along those lines. LED lamps also outperform halogens when visibility becomes poor due to fog and precipitation.
