Headlights, like every part of your vehicle, will inevitably run into issues as they get older. Dimmed lights, flickering beams and lights that won’t turn on are all common issues drivers run into with failing headlights. Wondering where to go for your headlight needs? J. Pauley Toyota can help drivers who are in need of headlight repair and replacement in Fort Smith, AR.
Drivers should act fast when it comes to fixing headlight issues. Getting stuck in a poor-visibility situation (such as after sunset or in heavy fog) with a bad set of headlights can be dangerous. While headlight issues often required the headlight to be replaced, they can sometimes be caused by a faulty wire connection or an issue with the vehicle’s electrical system.
The most common cause of headlight issues is an ageing or bad bulb. Different types of headlight bulbs last for different amounts of time. Halogen bulbs have the shortest lifespan, only lasting for 500 to 1,000 miles. HID lights have an expected lifespan of 2,000 miles. Xenon bulbs can last as long as 10,000 miles while LED bulbs can last for up to 30,000 miles.
Even if your bulbs are in perfect working condition, there are still many factors that could result in headlight issues. The headlight lens can become hazy or clouded over time, resulting in a weaker beam. Lens deteriorate due to environmental factors, such as heat and ultraviolet light exposure due to sunlight. No matter what the reason is for your vehicle’s headlight issue, our team of automotive experts will help you resolve the problem.
