Garden Grove Headlight Repair
Headlight technology has come a long way over the past few decades. Car headlights, also known as headlamps, come in a wide variety of types from classic sealed beams to modern halogen lights, xenon and even LED bulbs. Finding replacement headlight bulbs is crucial to a safe car ride and heightened visibility. Not just any light goes into your car or truck. It’s important to know what kind of parts you need. Do you need a whole replacement headlight assembly or do you have an H4 conversion and only need to find a headlight compatible with your housing. Replacing some bulbs requires dismantling parts under the hood. Sometimes an electric relay burns out and prevents electrical power from reaching the headlights. At Orozco’s Auto Service of Garden Grove our technician have the tools and the knowledge to keep you and your vehicle lit and safe.
Good headlights will help you out in inclement weather with a wide but focused beam of light that can save your life from nocturnal road hazards or an oncoming driver with limited visibility on a stormy night. Where we once had to settle for dull and discolored car headlamps, now we can choose from the brightest white light or a 7-color RGB DRL Bar headlight that mounts on the top of your off-road vehicle, virtually banishing darkness.
Today’s vehicles use standard or halogen bulbs, which are much brighter. HID lights use a high-intensity discharge to create white light for much safer driving conditions at night. You can also upgrade to LED bulbs. They cost more, but their powerful brightness makes night driving safer and more comfortable.
Don’t forget the headlight lenses
Over time, the plastic headlight lenses become yellow or foggy, which will block a lot of light. Visit Orozco’s Auto Service and our ASE certified technicians can make them look new again with special cleaners and polishes, and a hard protective finish. It’s much less expensive than having your lenses replaced.
Below is a list of a variety of available headlights products
REFLECTOR HEADLIGHTS – These are the oldest of the bunch and were often considered dull stock headlights.
PROJECTOR HEADLIGHTS – once only found in European performance cars, but today they are common.
H4 CONVERSIONS – the most accessible aftermarket upgrade the average driver can make to their driving lights.
HALOGEN HEADLIGHTS – combine two gasses to create a more efficient lighting environment than old-school filament bulbs.
HID HEADLIGHTS (XENON HEADLIGHTS) – high-intensity headlights give the most visibility to the driver. After filling a glass tube with Xenon gas, an arc of electric current is run through the bulb to produce incredibly hot plasma-filled white-blue lights.
LED HEADLIGHTS – activate with a speed that almost makes them almost automatic headlights. small and compact, but unfortunately get very hot and need expensive components to make them fully efficient.
Headlights may be the most prominent lights on your vehicle but there’s may other important lights. brake lights, back-up lights, license-plate lights, turn-signal lights, fog lights, and more. all requiring regular inspections and maintenance. Additionally, the Highway Safety Code designates headlights and other lights as part of your vehicle’s safety equipment. So, you can avoid a fine by ensuring that all your lights are working properly.
