How Long Do the Headlights Last?
carpart2021 posted a topic in Car Comparisons & ShoppingAs a driver, you likely take headlights for granted. You expect them to work when you need them to be working, no matter whether they turn on automatically or you have to do it manually. But like everything, headlights have a lifespan — and a headlight’s lifespan isn't necessarily when the bulb burns out completely, as it may be functioning, yet with poor light quality. Whatever the case, one thing is certain: A burned out or poorly working headlight is only impacting your safety, as well as the safety of drivers on the surrounding road. This post will take a closer look at headlight longevity. How Long Do Headlights Last? How long will your headlights last?

Mitsubishi Outlander posted a topic in After Market Parts and ElectronicsHi, I have a 2007 Mitsubishi Outlander and would like to get LED headlights. The only thing is that I don't know what do get. I have been looking at just getting the bulbs replaced, but I don't quite know which ones are good. Does anyone have any recommendations on what I should get? Anything would be helpful. Here are the ones that I was looking at: https://www.xenonhids.com/low-beam-9006-full-xenon-hid-conversion-kit.html?i=Db7WPx https://www.xenonhids.com/high-beam-9005-full-xenon-hid-conversion-kit.html?i=vxkvw2 The other thing that I was wondering about is, is there a separate light for the DRL or does that tie in with the low beams? Thank you
Head and Taillights Automatically turn on
Paul Davis posted a topic in Repairs & MaintenanceSo I’ve got an 08 Patriot. A few days ago, the headlights and taillights turn on as soon as I start the car, and turn off when the car is off. The dash dims and remains dim as soon as the lights kick on, as though the headlights were turned on. is this a sign of a failing multifunction switch or is there another likely cause??

legal Painted Headlights Housing - Is it Legal?
RelaxImHere posted a topic in General Car DiscussionHi everyone, I've recently opened my car's headlights to clean and I decided to paint the housings. I painted them Fluorescent Yellow and they look pretty nice. But I ran into the cops and they said my car will need to be impounded and the licensing officer will take a look and charge me. He said the charges will be "Elimination of Headlights" and "Breach of Fitness" I had to bribe the officer to get off but I want some advice before I reopen the lights and have to return them original. Any thoughts?
headlights Bi-Xenon/LED headlights water damage
samra posted a topic in Repairs & MaintenanceI recently noticed moisture in my headlights due to a crack i was unaware of. Unfortunately, i was a bit busy at the time i noticed the condensation so i left it to sit there for a while. Right now i got the condensation problem and the crack fixed but leaving the moisture there for a while caused my daytime running lights to stop working. I went to the dealer and they asked me to buy an entire new $1500 headlight and said it’s the only way to fix it. So i was hoping someone around here might know a way to fix it without having to buy a brand new headlight over some drl’s

I was wondering what the difference between these two trucks are (aside from appearance). They are both 1991 Gmc Sierras I believe, but why does one have square lights and one have rectangle lights? Was one a more sportier trim or is one 2wd and the other 4wd? I was just curious because I can hardly find pictures on the sierra with the square lights.
