Headlight Repair


The automotive headlight is located at the front of the vehicle. The headlight is what makes you able to see while driving at night! Headlights are located at the front of the vehicle. It is illegal to drive your automobile without headlights! There are a few different types of headlights. They are LED (the most common type), HID (or xenon), and halogen headlights. LED headlights are the newest, most commonly used type of headlights. They seem to work the best for night driving! Headlights will last you around five or so years. A few things cause headlights to stop working. They may be a bad fuse, headlight relay, headlight switch, dimmer switch, or a wiring fault. These are the most common faults.


When you replaced your vehicle’s headlights, you also replace everything included in the headlight assembly. This includes the housing (the hard plastic layer that you see when looking straight at the bulbs), the regular beams, the high beams, and the turn signal bulbs. Typically, these are all sold together, in an assembly kit, and are replaced together as well. This is to ensure that your headlights have a better chance of lasting longer.


Cars first began to have headlights in 1898. At this point in time, car headlights were optional for drivers to have on their vehicles. Peerless was the first company to invent and put headlights on cars. Massachusetts was the first state to require working headlights. However, in 1915 all vehicles were required to have properly working headlights installed on them. At this time, it was only mandatory to use them when driving from sunset to dark, from dark to sunrise, and while driving in the rain, snow, or other difficult driving conditions a driver may face.  Ever since then, it has become the new normal for all drivers.
