How to Ensure You’re Using the Right Automotive LED Bulbs

There are a lot of light bulbs that are mounted to a vehicle. Their uses range from providing forward-facing illumination to signaling to other drivers. Some lights are used for their accent value. For anyone who is not mechanically or electrically inclined, keeping track of the different types of bulbs and sizes will get tricky, fast.

At the same time, there are a lot of reasons that one might want to switch out some of the light bulbs on their vehicle, and there are automotive LED bulbs out there that you can use as replacements for some of the lights your vehicle currently uses. For example, there are replacement tail light bulbs and brake lights, along with side marker bulbs, turn signals, fog lights, and more.

Replacing any or all of these lights with LED replacement bulbs might even come with some serious benefits for you as a driver. For example, LEDs last much longer than incandescent bulbs and halogen bulbs, and they are much more durable as well. Some LED replacements are resistant to vibration and shock, moisture, corrosion and more. They also draw a lot less power from the vehicle’s electrical system.

At that point the main roadblock becomes one where you can get those automotive LED bulbs and figure out how to make the actual replacement. Here’s the catch; for people who are not familiar with car parts, even replacing a turn signal with a factory replacement can be confusing.
