Turn on the Lights of the Vehicle to Ensure they are Working

by | May 21, 2020 | Headlights and Tail Lights, Lights, maintenance, Night Driving | 0 comments

The lights on your vehicle are important for the safety when driving. Make sure that the lights are properly inspected by us. There are several things that should be checked for them. Doing so will help improve the visibility when driving when it starts to get dark. Without the lights properly inspected, there may be several issues with them when you go to turn them on. You will always want the vehicle to be as safe and reliable as possible, so make sure to bring it in for regular inspections and maintenance.

 

By turning on the headlights, you will be able to ensure they are properly illuminated. If a light or bulb is out, make sure to contact us. Test all settings of the lights. The brights, dims, and fog lights should all be checked to ensure they are able to properly illuminate. By contacting us for an appointment, we can inspect the lights and how they are aimed as well. You will want to make sure that the lights are not aimed at any oncoming traffic. This can cause an accident because you impair their vision. Make sure that the headlights are not directly pointed in either ditch as well.

 

Check the taillights of your vehicle as well. Park the vehicle and turn on the lights. By walking around the car, the headlights and taillights can be inspected. After that, turn on one of the signals and walk around the vehicle again. Then turn the other turn signal on and do the same. This will help to determine how well the blinkers are working for your vehicle. If there is an issue, or the lights are hard to see, make sure to contact us. As we check all the lights, we can also check the fuses for the blinkers and lenses as well.
