Led Bulbs

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Double-check your vehicle is turned off

2. Find the right location of your own headlights, and for some housings, there would be a rubber gasket for what protection here.

3. Take out the rubber gasket and put off the wires to the headlight.

4. According to different housing, such as a chief or in a G7, there is a little clip there you have to lift up. Then, you can get the oboe out easy, nice, and make sure you don't touch the Bulb.

5. To mount these new led headlights.

6. Twist this black ring out and put it back to the housing.

7. Push back the little metal holder, then we can gently position it back to the socket.

8. Install the Bulb and twist the Bulb and make sure it locks into place.

9. Then connect wire, quite easy to do.

LED headlights typically last longer than regular halogen bulbs. While the life of a halogen bulb can vary depending on usage and other factors, it typically lasts between 500 and 1,000 hours. LED headlights, on the other hand, can last up to 25,000 hours or more. If LED headlights have a proper heat sink, they can last up to 50,000 hours. However, they usually are used in where standard halogen bulbs work, so they last about 8,000 hours. This means you can expect to replace halogen bulbs much less frequently when you switch to LED headlights.

1. Park your vehicle: Park your vehicle on a level surface facing a wall or garage door approximately 25 feet away.

2. Make a mark: Locate the center of your headlight housing. Then make a mark on the wall that corresponds to the center of your headlight as close to the wall as possible.

3. Check tire pressure: Make sure you have enough air in your tires.

4. Turn on your headlights: Set your headlights to low beam. They should be pointed at the marks you made on the wall, but 25 feet away.  From left to right, your headlights should be completely level.

5. Check the mark: When you look at your lights hitting the wall, you want to see the center hot spot at or below the marks you made.

6. Adjust Vertical Alignment (Up and Down): Locate the opening on your LED fixture that looks like an electrical outlet. Insert a Phillips screwdriver into this location so that it engages the teeth of the gear.  Tighten the screwdriver until the gear wheel is in motion. If you turn the screwdriver in one direction, it will adjust the headlight to the up position. Turning it in the opposite direction will adjust your headlight downward. Continue until the main focus of your beam pattern is at or below the lines you marked on the wall when you were close.

7. Test on the road: Take your vehicle for a short drive to make sure the headlamps are properly adjusted. If necessary, fine-tune adjustments based on actual driving conditions.

Halogen Bulbs

Halogen bulbs are the most common headlight bulbs found in old and new vehicles today. Halogen bulbs are a type of incandescent light bulbs that use halogen gas to function. Vehicles that have a yellow color to their headlights are the ones that use halogen bulbs.

 

Pros

Cheap to replace: You'll find that replacing a halogen bulb is less expensive than replacing an LED.

Less glaring yellowish light quality: The yellow light is also a softer light that won't blind other drivers as easily.

 

Disadvantages

Not as bright: Some of the energy used is converted to heat instead of light.

High power consumption: Because these bulbs emit a lot of heat, they aren't very efficient.

Shorter lifespan: A halogen bulb typically lasts about 2,000 hours.

 

LED bulb

LED, short for Light Emitting Diode, produces light by passing electricity through tiny semiconductors that emit photons.

 

Pros

Lower power consumption:  LEDs are also much more efficient than halogen bulbs. While halogen bulbs produce a large amount of heat, the amount of heat produced by LEDs is far less, which helps to save energy.

Very bright beam: LEDs emit a white light that is brighter than most halogens. This makes things easier to see around corners and has a much cooler appearance.

Long life: Because these bulbs save more energy, you can expect an LED bulb to last longer than a halogen bulb.

 

Disadvantages

Can dazzle oncoming traffic: Because LEDs are brighter, they can be harder on other drivers' eyes when driving at night.

Expensive to replace: LEDs are more expensive to repair.

A legal LED headlight bulb needs to meet the following requirements

1. Your LED headlights have a maximum brightness of 2513 lumens according to federal guidelines (specifically Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 108).

2. Your headlights have "DOT" written on them.

3. LED headlamps are white with amber turn signals.

4. The original model year is equipped with LED headlights.

5. Must not interfere with the others’ driving.
