A headlight or taillight goes out on your car, but you don't have time to take it into the shop. You can fix most car lighting problems yourself quickly when you know how to identify the problem. Here is how to troubleshoot most automotive lighting issues and fix them so you can get back on the road safely.
Fuse or Bulb Problem?
Every light on your car is connected to a fuse that protects the car in case of a short in the wiring. A light problem can be due to a burned-out fuse or a burned-out light bulb. The first step is to determine what the problem really is. Use the following rules to troubleshoot the problem.
Replacing a Bad Fuse
Your car may have spare fuses, saving you a trip to the auto parts store. You will need the car's owner's manual to replace the right fuse.
Replacing a Bad Bulb
You will have to go to an auto parts store like 195 Auto Parts to get a replacement bulb. Tell the clerk which bulb you need and have them find it for you. There are so many bulb styles that it's easy to get the wrong one for your car.
Replacing the bulb requires finding it within the cluster of lights in your car. It helps to turn on your car and the lights to identify the burned out bulb. If it is a brake light, have a friend push on the brake pedal so you can see which one needs to be replaced. Once you've identified the location of the bulb, follow these steps to replace it.
