The tail light assembly on your car is critically important to your safety, and yet one of those car parts that you don’t realize isn’t working right until it is too late. Here lies the brake light to let drivers behind you know when you are slowing down or stopping. There is also the turn signal to alert traffic behind you of your intent to change lanes or exit and the reverse light for when you are backing up. In addition, they illuminate with your headlights when driving at night so that other vehicles are aware of your presence.
How Can You Tell They are Out
There are a few different variations of tail light assembly’s being used on cars today. Some rely on a single bulb system, which means you lose it all if the bulb burns out, while others use multiple bulbs for the different functions. You may get a warning light on your dash if a tail light has gone out. For the turn signal lamp there are vehicles that will alert you to a burnt bulb by quickening the beat of the clicks when you signal to turn. The only sure way to tell what is going on back there is to enlist the help of a buddy and have them stand at the back of the car while you run through all of the different tail light functions. Note the ones that don’t engage and get to work changing them before you get a traffic ticket or worse.
Before You Get Started:
All the Fuses are Fine
Once a blown fuse has been ruled out, it is time to look at the tail light assembly itself. It can usually be accessed through the trunk of your car.
Important to Note:
It may not seem like much, but replacing your tail lights is not something that you should put off. If you are still unsure on how to do it watch a pro in action and get some more helpful hints on how to make the job an easy one.
